I'm not saying don't get it.  Just understand what you are getting
into.  There are people here who will help you get it going once you
have it.  But, GNOME or's not going to "Just Work".

As long as you understand what you need to do, you can definitely get
it running.  In the long-run, I think you might be happier with it,
since support _WILL_ improve.
