Which do you use? I'm using Pardus, but I'm testing different versions at the moment, and maybe will make a permanent switch. Maybe. I've tested Debian Wheezy (Testing branch) the last days and I run Debian Lenny (Stable) in non-X environment on Servers. I've never run Linux Mint, but they've released a version which has Debian Testing branch in its source, they call it "LMDE". Download - Linux Mint Has anyone tried this? It is similar to Debian Cut project (no release so far). Another Linux Version I'll test is Aptosid, which has Debian Sid (Unstable) as its source. I have read only good things about it so far, and what they say is, that it is one of fastest KDE implementation. aptosid.com :: aptosid - Debian hot and spicy! At home I'm limited to KDE due to KDE's perfect and stable implementation of ssh/sftp (fish://) handling. Gnome, XFCE etc. all suck in this regard. The only thing I can not figure out is the behavour of remote file-saving. Only Kwrite/Kate will save the files immediately to remote machine. If I modify files with Geany (best Text-Editor) or Gedit, I first have to close Geany/Gedit and only then the Filebrowser asks if the modified file should be uploaded. It doesn't save the files immediately on remote machine, but makes a copy on local machine in /tmp/var/kde-cache. Be it with Pardus or Debian. If I mount the remote machine with sshfs/fuse then I can instantly save the files from all Text-Editors. But sshfs is too slow with Directory-browsing within mount-point, it takes seconds to display contents within folders if there are more than 20 files or folders within a folder.
