    I voted for the Opera repo's even though I always download their .deb and then double click. it, it's even easier than in windows It's good that they have a repository though, so that you get notified about updates.

    But i think it sucks how they don't have a repo for the weeklies, it would be so much faster to get the new weekly that way

    wait a sec. do they have a repo for the weeklies?

    I put cipherfunk for the divx codecs, wine, and seveas.
    I've also got automatix repo for updates so I don't need the skype.
    Nice and neat and tidy :-

    You forgot the best ones. The ones that have me using Ubuntu on my desktop again instead of FreeBSD (Ubuntu never left my laptop). The ones that have finally made my FOSS computer as beautiful, smooth and silky as my Mac. The ones that have me using Gnome instead of KDE.


    The XGL/Compiz repositories:

    Whatever happened to "other"?

    Either way, I like debian-multimedia and Takis' repo.
