I've only ever used Debian-based distros.  I started with Corel Linux, moved
to pure-Debian when Corel obviously wasn't going anywhere and have been
using Ubuntu since it was brand new.

I keep trying to install other distros, but half of them haven't worked
out-of-the-box on my particular hardware, and the ones that have worked
didn't "feel" right.  I always end up back at Debian.
