I use Debian, and I have no complaints.  I did run into problems with 
older kernels...like the early 2.6.x's...but the latest version gives me 
great performance, even with Outlook .pst files over 600MB in size.  
However, I am a bit biased in that I prefer package based 
distro's....I'm sure the others on the list will have some good 
suggestions as well.

Best Regards,
