I've heard that Gentoo's package management system "Portage" is
inspired by FreeBSDs ports, but I believe it's a bit of work to
install and compile a working system.

I've been using Debian based Kubuntu on my laptop, and find the
package management excellent. The installation and maintenance is
easy.  It's my choice when I want to install and go.

Thanks, I didn't know Kubuntu / Ubuntu was Debian based. I like Debian
but the distribution always seems to be stuck in last year, It's still
using a 2.4 kernel, XFree86, and KDE 3.3!

Anyways, Kubuntu 6.06 Beta2 appears to meet most of my requirements so
I'll give it a whirl.
