Switched to Fedora 14, from Sabayon Linux.  Fedora is, i think, the perfect combination of functionality, performance and ease of installation.  The installer (Anaconda; supposedly the same installer Sabayon uses, except in Fedora it actually works...) even let me partition my three disks into a couple raid-arrays; one for the root filesystem and one for swap space.  And it did it without flinching, bombing out halfway through, or spontaneously rebooting!

It's almost as well-polished as Ubuntu.  Totem (Movie Player for Gnome) searches for uninstalled codecs and finds them if they're available...  It's really well put-together; then again, Red Hat always used to be, so no surprise there.
