Definitely worth a punt Barry:

Rock solid - I haven't broken it, even with my normal tinkering :)
Most PPAs I have tried work (except LibreOffice, but I got that working by
downloading the Debs).
Suspend works (mostly, but not at all on Ubuntu 10.04).

Its not as up-to-date as I would like, kernel is only 2.6.32-5-amd64, but I
am working on getting the Liquirix kernel installed (it installs OK but DKMS
doesn't rebuild my wifi or ATI drivers).

Overall lacks the user input of Ubuntu, Ubuntu has taken over the world

I have found a script to duplicate add PPA functionality as well.

Feel free to give me a shout, if I can help I will.
