Mandriva was the first distro I spent any significant amount of time on. It was a good way to start to learn Linux, I think. I then went to SuSe. After that, I tried to install Gentoo the old fashioned way, but decided that was too miserable and I didn't have enough time. Now I'm using Sabayon.

i started with mandriva and i learned a lot about linux from that since nothing worked right and i had to fix a lot of stuff. then i tried a whole lot of distros but only stuck with em for like 3 days until i tried gentoo install which i stuck with for a while since i sacrificed so much time doing it. learned a lot from that though. i thikn longest one i have used is ubuntu for like 6 months... not that i dont necessarily like any of them but i like to switch and check it all out.

this may sound like betrayal but i like ubuntu a lot too :)

sabayon and ubuntu are probably my two favorites now: they make it easy for me to get up and running ( i must admit sabayon makes it even easier :))

Snowish Iconset

Post by ja5on » Tue Oct 03, 2006 20:13

Yeah. This is a real awesome icon set, very easy on the eyes. I'm going to knock up a few sabayon wallpapers in inkscape to compliment this iconset.

Regards

wow that makes me excited, those icons are great and there going to be some cooler desktops on the way too. although this may sound like herasy i dont see how thecurrent desktop background is a flower with a water drop or whatever, maybe i just dont have an artistic eye... will post my screenshot when i get home.
