They run really well, but as always the trade-off to ensure your whole
system runs smoothly is getting down into the depths of Gentoo....

Since you like Ubuntu, I'd suggest you look at Mepis. Its a Debian
based distro which installs well from the CD, and runs in a much more
Debian-centric mode. However you will have to download and burn
the .iso file yourself.
I'd suggest that you look at www.distrowatch.com so you can get a better
idea of the comparative strengths and weaknesses of each distro
