	If you want the ultimate in configurability and speed, then I would choose 
Gentoo.  It is not conventional, in the sense that there are regular 
releases.  You keep your system up to date by using the command 
emerge --sync.  It is a portage based system and you can add programs to your 
system from a very large list by simply emerging them.

I prefer Gentoo for all my other operations, but the family computer, this 
one, will run Kubuntu forever simply because my wife doesn't like to have to 
learn about computer programs, she just wants her email and browser to work 
trouble free.
