I tried 5 different distros of Linux before I finally settled on Zenwalk. I'm a complete and utter newbie. I tried for 3 days to get my wireless working with other distros, but to no avail. Just so happens I have the Atheros card, which I've read Linux hates. I installed Zenwalk and had my wireless up and running in under 10 minutes, thanks to their wiki, which addresses my card specifically. If it hadn't been for Zenwalk, I would have gone back to Windows, so I'm eternally grateful.
Good review, by the way! Being a n00b, the netpkg is a bit harder to understand than the (K)Ubuntu one, but I've gotten Opera and a few other games installed pretty easily (I love black jack), so it's not that difficult.
