Right, Debian might be an alternative, but Suse, Fedora isn't, at least not for me.
Yet I go with Gentoo, I like the way it works, and gives me more things to do, and as a result more to learn

Porthole is the only frontend I've found so far. It is masked by default however.

I emerged Kuroo and it seems to work. Its a lot like Kpackage in the way it works. I still prefer the CLI, but this is a functional alternative. Its not in portage, though.

This all depends on the use of the distro..
But if i had to choose one it would be Mepis all the way

The way i see mepis is suse without the bloat which is exactly what i had been looking for!
One (good) program for each need, stable, uses apt/synaptic, installs from the live cd that doubles as a recovery cd.

For a newbie like myself, definitely Suse. Power management for laptop worked out of the box which is the only thing Ive seen missing from other distros.

I haven't tried a distro yet in which power management for any of my laptops has not worked right out of the box. I'm currently running FC3 on a Chembook variant and ubuntu on a Vaio and both utilized power management without any intervention opr tweaking on my part.
