Like the commenters above, I've had extremely positive experiences with sidux since its inception. The choices of desktop/windowmanagers are sensible. The h/w recognition is second to none. Our department's laptop's always get sidux on them and it is the first distro to get the bcm4306 wireless chip going on my laptop without any thrashing around on the net. We are also using it on lab desktop machines. The scripts mentioned do checks for issues for you and will keep your system up to date, and warn against upgrading if there are problems that need to be fixed first. It really kicks ubuntu's butt. And 2008-03's release is noticably faster to boot from hdd than anything I've seen to date.
