Ditto.  I've been through dozens of Linux distributions, and Debian is
still my favorite.  I am *not* talking about Ubuntu, mind you -- that's
not really Debian any longer.  Much of what I like most about Debian was
screwed gently with a chainsaw by the Ubuntu team.

Of course, that's only "almost tolerate", as you said.  Even Debian
annoys the crap out of me, now that I've gotten familiar enough with
FreeBSD to realize what I was missing.
