I use plain Debian, so: a) the no viruses thing makes my main computer activity (porn) very easy - I can be watching porn about 20 minutes after I pop the install media inb) everything gets installed from the same place and updated at the same timec) rtorrent
Today I happened to boot my CrunchBang liveUSB on someone's PC. He had never heard of Linux. I was amused by his question: "Is Linux black and white?".Some people (especially geeks) prefer dark themes, but most people don't. I could suggest something like my desktop or something like the Lubuntu default theme.
