Hey everyone,

Right now I'm using Gentoo and it's awesome, I've used Ubuntu and it was awesome. I'm wondering if there are any new Distro's coming out or that are out that incorporate anything new or interesting.
I want to find an interesting Linux system. You know not something that it big name, Not that I'm not happy with Gentoo or Ubuntu but I'd like to try something new.

Any Ideas

Thanks

DOCMUR

Ya, I've check that site. I'm not opposed to trying out the Distro's they mention my only point here was to try and poll the other users here. Maybe the've come accross interesting Distro's and what not

You could give some of the Slackware based distros a try.

Slackware 12
Zenwalk
Arch. which has pacman or something, I haven't tried it but it's a different package system at least to toy with.

just my 2c

Ya, Actually I've tried Arch and it's really good, but it has some really odd quarks to it that I found to be very hard to solve around. Just little things but I would label them important, such as Video players and etc...
As for slackware, I've been thinking about giving it a go. I'm kind of at the point in my skill level that I want to try a distro that will teach me some new tricks not just rehash the old ones.

I know its more of a mainstream distro, but for the last few years, I've been keeping my eye on openSuse. They have been putting out some great releases. They only issues I come across is with their package manager. If only they'd switch from rpm to deb, it would be the distro out t here, because its well establish and polished.
