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 so you can get a better 
idea of the comparative strengths and weaknesses of each distro
