Re: Thoughts of a Former Distrohopper
I've installed SolydK (an offshoot of Mint Debian) so that I don't have to distro-hop or re-install (cause it's rolling release) on my netbook -- which I only use for email, writing and browsing.
But I'm like a crow. I love all things new and shiny -- and will risk getting run over. So, on my upper-end laptop, I've got to have those PPA's. It's all about package management. Since I've never warmed to Unity (though I'm going to try 14.04 and see what I think) I'm presently using NetrunnerOS. I've switched to KDE, much to my shock, after a couple years hopping through different Xubuntu distros. (XFCE is going through an awkward transitional phase right now.)
