I've gone through a few distros in the past 2 months - migrated from 
windows 7 with cs5 - determined to go open source.
Went to Arch (great, but a few annoying little issues put me off - 
specifically fonts) - then Kubuntu, Fedora, back to Arch and
then ended up with Ubuntu - Unity is quite annoying at times, but at 
least is still uses compiz (unlike Gnome's new mutter).
Cross the board though I would say I felt better performance with 
Windows 7 (which is quite annoying I admit) - As a graphic
designer I love a pretty GUI and have tried Enlightenment, XFCE, LDE and 
openbox. They're all nice, but just feel they lack
that certain cool factor I have come to expect from a modern desktop.

On the upside - I have proved to myself that I can make a proper 
magazine using only open source without compromising too much.
Still have a big issue with Scribus' justification - which is make or 
break for me - but next week I'll experiment and see if I can
get it where I like it.

Anyways - very off topic. Apologies to mailing list members who don't 
care for this discussion.
