    After searching endlessly for some stable and attractive desktop distro I found Kwheezy 1.2, dream come true?; this is user-rich distro that can be described as the stable-creative, many apps, controls, tools and all runs well; Debian gives stability and KDE good looks, user-oriented environment. Don’t need to fight Gnomee anymore, that is really really big relief, the life can be fun and productive.
