Interesting observation David. Are you implying I might be better off 
fumbling through a Fedore install? ;-) I'm thinking Debian this time 
because I've seen many people on this list swear by it. But I'm always 
open to other options - I want to play some but I mainly want a good 
platform I can develop the new app on.
