Being a distro whore stretching back to RedHat 5.1, and having recently 
struggled during the RPM09 challenge considerably more with my apps than 
I felt I should have, I installed ArtistX yesterday.

This is a phenomenally complete (9.8GB huge/bloated some will say - but 
what a playground of applications for graphics, audio, and video work 
along with all the productivity packages a studio, household or business 
might need) multimedia distro based upon Debian a la Intrepid 8.10 and 
Ubuntu Studio, but unlike that latter distro, everything I've tried in 
ArtistX has worked faultlessly, and at an exceptionally high level of 

Gnome 2.24, KDE 4.2, kernel 2.6.27 and a boatload of cutting-edge software.
