I see the same being said quite often of Cent OS and SL, though I find them to be excellent, solid dekstop OS's.

I'm always playing with other distros in VMs but I've yet to see anything that makes me want to switch. Not that the other distros don't look good, because they do, I just tend to stick with what's familiar.
I absolutely agree. I primary use Debian Wheezy, but have tried Mint, Fedora, Slack, kFreeBSD, and on and on, but it's familiarity that keeps me with Debian. Although I did make the transition from Gnome 2 to Shell and am (*gasp*) loving it. It's the deep down stuff (package management, file location, etc) that makes each distro what it is to each user as far as I can see.
