that why ,
Debian is under review to have XFCE as default and to replace Gnome 3
Nice! I didn't know that, but would take xfce over gnome 3 any day. I have that now as my GUI of choice with Arch
MIA Linux, actually just came out recently, based on LXDE and has all I need, incredibly fast and comfortable has a great menu and looks.
FreeBSD feels like it has potential to me, but doesn't seem to have a convenient way to manage Wifi on Netbooks or Laptops.
I would seriously consider it for a Desktop though.
yeah.. Maybe using KDE on it helps?
Sharp OS, Grasshopperos.com
I'm sure that network manager has been ported by PC-BSD.
Failing that you can set up connections using wpasupplicant or use wpa_gui
There is also net-mgmt/wifimgr in the ports tree (never used it so no idea, in fact I might give it a spin when I have time)
//edit: wifimgr looks useful, looks like a simple front end for setting up multiple profiles with wpasupplicant
Snowlinux, Bodhi or Manjaro, in case you enjoy lightweight distributions but can't give up a handful of eye candy. Vector or Lubuntu for a more minimalist approach. I prefer to build my own distro from minimal installs, preventing pre-loaded junk from bloating the system, and it's also very practical to load the latest kernel.
I dual-boot Fedora 19 and windows 8! im extremely happy with it.
I never met a Linux I didn't like!
Arch w/ Awesome on a pretty old HP lap top and Crunchbang on the PC.
My distro of choice is OpenSuSE. YAST makes my life easier and I like stuff that makes life easier.
I can't believe that there are still four people who voted for Windows! I use Windows sometimes, but I generally think Linux is much better. I use Arch Linux, which can be a fun distribution for Linux-familiar users, even though I started using it when I was a beginner. Linux is what I use the most, and it always will be!
