    package signing is coming in pacman 4 and there is about 30% of packages in the testing repos that are signed so far.

    If you think/feel that Arch might be a little bit too much, check out "Chakra" or Archbang" both based on Arch.

    Fuduntu is nice but things like broadcom wireless will not work out of the box.

    PcLinuxos is very impressive. I've hesitated about doing a permanent install because of internet stories that their repositories have from time to time been unavailable. Also, it is said (correct me if I am wrong, please) that you must pay $25 a year to have 24/7 access to the latest updates.

    Anyone have more details on PcLinuxOs?
    Xubuntu 11.10 64 bit

    @roja Broadcom wireless in Fuduntu does work, if not OTB it will with a quick download...there is a howto on the forum....for most, it would be no more trouble than in Ubuntu!

    ...It is a rolling release and it may have corrected your problem....when did you try it?

    LMDE is a no-brainer, but if you're adventurous and want bleeding
    edge that works "out of the box", Sabayon is worth checking out.

    Glad you found something that suits you.

    Make sure you look at abs & modifying some flags in makepkg.conf if you like having software compiled specifically for your cpu.
