FWIW, my ati works out of the box with debian. The 'enhanced' binary
drivers of ATI are a bit of a pain, but that's ATI's problem not debian's.

What do you think would be a stable distro? I don't think that fedora is
more stable than debian stable.

I guess you just had some bad luck with messing with different
configurations. For me debian works near to perfect with out much
configuration out of the box.

Good luck with your choice. We are all in for the freedom of choice and
that includes the choice to try software and choose to use a different one.

It would have been nicer, though, if you had just found a constructive
way of solving your problems instead of just an unconstructive rant.
