A bit about me. I started using linux with the Ubuntu 8.04 release and eventually moved over to openSUSE Gnome as my main OS since 12.1. I do refurbishing work for a local not-for-profit that gets computers out to geriatric and other special needs people. Most of these folks have never been on a computer and linux is by far easier to learn and update than Winders. None of these users are comfortable using CLI, so I usually install the latest Mint OS on these comps. I have about 15 computers on hand to play with at any one time, so I am constantly trying out new distros. I am trying to get proficient with KDE, but I still prefer the look and feel of Gnome. My latest tests have been AriOS (Bumblebee works out of the box), Bodhi (works nice on netbooks), and Hanthana (very pretty). So many distros…so little time.
