It's not bad but it's not quite as easy to use as most people say. There are better distros aimed at beginners than this, this is not the distro for a new Linux user. Although it took most of it's codebase from Debian, it does not maintain compatibility and therefore some packages or package versions are impossible to install. I could not read from my Zip drive, yet Fedora and Mandriva have no problems mounting the same drive.

This is just ridiculous. Nobody needs the RIAA! Not artists and not music fans. I think that's their main problem. They serve us no purpose and now they act hostile towards us? What gives them a right to tell me what I can put on my optical media?
BTW... There's no way in hell they can stop people from copying music. Encryption and DRM can be broken (look at DVD's) and if worst comes to worst people can copy songs from the radio. Deal with it. There are still plenty of honest people who are buying music to support their favorite artist and get an "official" CD.
The RIAA should be thankful to even be around these days, still leeching profit from those who deserve it... The artists who actually create and perform their music. It's only a matter of time before bands wise up and start selling directly from their own websites.
