i agree with stability and nebie use,but,that vanilla look aint too impressive to me.for stability i was with opensuse 12.2 kde.it was very,very awesome.only problem was when i upgraded that kde to the latest,it hid my mint 14 partitions from which was a pain,so,i took opensuse off.for kde i recommend opensuse or mint,as we all know mint is one of the most user friendly distributions.
Mageia is a pain with the drivers and its wireless connection.
