Single Status Update
My Gentoo desktop. Gnome with no Kde stuff in sight and many leagues faster than Linux Mint 9, that I used in a chroot to build Gentoo. I am using Wicd to connect to the house WIFI network and Xawtv to watch SBS. I am very happy indeed, it took about 14 hours to build Gnome, but it was worth it having this much speed, especially with no Mono applications installed, it does not have the overhead of Ubuntu or Linux Mint.
Darkplaces Quake runs at lightning speed with effects turned on and I am loving it. Sure it took me days to get the system set up, but as I said I consider it to be worth it.

Right, what I meant is that as far as I know it uses the same kind of system, not specifically the same repositories.
Unless the software's 'bleeding edge' release offers me something significant compared to what I'm using, I find that I have little motivation to update anyway, so I don't think that would be a big problem.
Alright, I'm gonna download Debian and try it out in Virtual Box or something like that.
Check out my super awesome "Windows 7" desktop. Unfortunately my command terminal doesn't have turbo transparency tech (or TTT for short), but much like you I can also do a dozen and a half things at any given point in time... all at once. So there.
This includes, but is not limited to, having an analog clocks on top of analog clocks on my desktop in addition to the digital clock on the taskbar... because you can never have enough ways to tell the time. Also, I can play ancient video games whilst listening to music and talking with my e-brethren on the world wide webtranets simultaneously.
