    You can cut out Ubuntu by getting LMDE. I've never tried it, but the option is there.

    Manjaro user here as well!

    Started using Linux with Ubuntu, as is it the case for most people. That said, Ubuntu (along with several other distributions) decided not to include non-PAE kernels since... version 12.04, I think.

    Switched to Fuduntu for some time, but that distro has ceased to exist. So I came across Manjaro, and I've been satisfied so far.

    I started out with Ubuntu (like a lot of people) and moved to Fedora. Then Gnome 3 came out and I couldn't stomach it. Luckily though, you can install Cinnamon with Fedora.

    Code:
    su yum install cinnamon
    Really love Cinnamon!

    But Fedora itself does everything I need it to, so I stuck with it.

    Mint is my new favorite!
    After being really disappointed by Ubuntu with its new interface i had to switch the distro.
    First I considered KUbuntu(but I am not a big fan of KDE)... and then I decided to check out Mint with Cinnamon environment.
    Now I love it and will never ever go back to Ubuntu.

    Back in a day i had a premium subscription to Mandriva. That's one nice linux distribution too, but today it is very commercialized.
    Mindweaver and Chevalr1c say thanks.

    Got a Raspberry Pi through the post to work last week, running Wheezy, and compiled Doom, Duke Nukem and Quake III so far for the fun of it, got to work on some overclocks and various libraries. Going to see what other magic I can do with it one i put a VGA heatsink on the main chips! Running Magaia 4 on all my other virtual machines

    I went back to arch after fooling around with the new ubuntu/xubuntu, mint and fedora. There's just something magic about the neatness of arch.

    Yes, kitties usually like being loved by their owners. That cat looks disturbed.

    Anyways, I want to try korora, mint and netrunner when I get the chance.
    I'm also going to install puppy on my netbook eventually.

    I have tried Fedora before, its KDE based right? anyway if you love Cinnamon, I think you should give a shot to Linux mint Cinnamon. Linuxmint is better, more refined than ubuntu (my personal opinion).

    Cinnamon is at early stage but it is developing quickly.

    I find Cinnamon to be quite bad and as much as I tried, Mate completely blows Cinnamon away.
    So, I can't understand why people keep praising Cinnamon that much everywhere...

    Just got my old machine up and running.
    Tried to install Porteus on it, but it seems like it's not really fun.
    Pros:
    • Fast boot time, even on older machines(Currently running AMD Sempron 2400+/512MB RAM/Radeon 9600)
    • Small distribution size(290MB for i486 version w/ LXDE)
    • Tolerable interface with lots of room for expansion
    • Ability to run it in copy2ram mode, which gives the advantage of running it a lot faster on machines with 2GB+ of RAM
    • You can select the distribution with proprietary or opensource VGA drivers when downloading the ISO(no ned to manually install it)
    Cons:
    • Not true permanent installation. It just runs it live off your HDD(needs a lot of tweaking to make it work the way it should)
    • Constant problems with updating packages(hangs or cycles during installation)
    • Dependency issues, due to smallness of the distro(system runs the bare minimum, so if you want to install something, be ready to download another 20-30 packages)
    • Sound issues (device found, drivers installed, but still no sound)
    Good distro, if you are running it Live off the USB stick, but i'd like something a bit more permanent and flexible.

    That's what I'm doing right now.

    Seriously thought, thinking about installing Gentoo on something. It was a while ago.

    INTRO -- A GNU/Linux user since July 2009.

    Currently using Mint-15-xfce installed on girlfriend's PC. I got to the present distro by way of Jaunty Jackalope, PCLOS-lxde, Zenwalk, antiX, Debian, Salix, Scientific, and others. My most recent interests include Slackware and FreeBSD -- because they are the most UNIX-like and I do not agree with the directions 'buntus and RH have taken.

    Freedom is what it is all about.
