I find it to be too Windows-esque, which certainly has its place (with
the majority of end users I suspect). But the problem I have with it is
the same as Red Hat, that it prefers users to use the GUI tools to
configure the system, which can be a pain to do remotely. For purly ssh
access slackware and debian are preferred, and of those debian pulls
away from Slackware (this is merely my opinion only, I know there are
some rabid Slackware users out there, but I will never be completly
converted). Yast vs vim is no contest.
On my laptop I really like the Kubuntu Breezy preview. It should be
interesting to see how this distro progresses. But for servers I am
still sticking with Debian.
