I'd go with Mandriva Linux here. Very good detection of hardware, Compiz Fusion is simple to enable, Mandriva Control Center is the best when it comes to configuring the system and it has the best quality translation into Slovenian language.

Debian is not a distro. and your right Ubuntu really lacks the speed of most linux distros except suse wow suse is slowwwww.
why you tweak the kernel then add way to much stuff to it.debian is a linux system that is used on many distros. or you can build your own debian distro.

CentOS is rock solid for business. LFS is great for learning and experimentation. But, Debian just gets better and better!

What no Mint, sidux and antiX?

I have never used Mint, but it surely must be one of the successes of 2007. Sidux keeps going from strength to strength, and my antiX is great for those with low specs ie 128MB RAM.

Fedora, for your great RPM repo!

CentOS is good, but it repository's suck.
