I have run into issues with hardware support. Some of it has to do with not being able to include propriatry drivers, others are just lack of support.

Over all though, I think the thing that I miss the most is the user interface. I have my KDE tweaked pretty close to the way I like it, but there could be some better features.

I don't game so I can't say I care at all about that. Honestly, if you game a lot, either dual boot are have a gaming box, or just get a console.

In general I consider myself a grounded linux fan. I don't see linux being a main stream desk top ever, I don't like "friendly" distros like Ubuntu because they defeate the purpose of linux in general. I am all for a solid distro that has good hardware detection, and even GUI config, but I don't like a linux distro that shields you from the back-side of the system.

There are about a thousand and one odd things that hold linux back from main-stream, and there is no way all of them are going to be fixed with out a huge chunk of change backing it, and I don't want to see that happen either. Linux shouldn't be main stream, or at least I hope that there are always distros that aren't striving to be main-stream. I don't care if Fedora, Ubuntu, Mandriva, Linspire and all those crappy distros go in that direction. As long as I have my enterprise systems and my debian/gentoo systems I will be happy.
