    I agree. Personally I like ARCH .

    One that's easy to use and set up as well, Arch does not fit that description, but it's what you like.

    If you want an easy rolling release distro with Gnome, perhaps this is a better one: http://linuxgator.org/home/index.html
    ? Testing is pretty stable. I would hardly describe myself as a Linux genius, and I've been using testing for around a year now with no problems. If you've been practicing with Ubuntu for a while, you should be fine. The only time there is much of an issue is during the freeze period, so many people advise changing back to the release name (squeeze for this release) until testing is released as stable, and testing is unfrozen again and doing a "dist-upgrade" back to testing....

    I haven't experienced a freeze period yet, so I can't comment on how this period will be for you, but i have done dist-upgrades from stable to testing, and testing to unstable before, without much issue but you will have to make up your own mind about that!!

    Just be aware that in your /etc/apt/sources.list, you will need to make sure you have "testing" rather than "squeeze" for it to be a "rolling" distro. Otherwise you will just stay with the same branch when testing goes stable.

    Good luck

    debian testing is great, i've got a laptop that has been using it for 4 years.

    also you should not confine yourself to just debian, like the others said arch is a rolling release as well.

    sidux (sid + a few packages for easy installation)
    debian sid
    debian testing (it does go through feature freezes so not rolling 100% of the time)
    MEPIS (well sort of it has a rolling release app repo, over a stable base)
    Ubuntu

    Personally i would go with sid/sidux, but i've also heard good things about MEPIS (they recently released 8.0.15 and 8.5 is in beta4)

    Ubuntu can be made into a "rolling release" of sorts. Adding some PPA's and other Ubuntu compatible repos to your sources.list makes it as close to a rolling release as you'll get with an Ubuntu install anyway.
