Sabayon 11 is out for those interested. Also if you haven't tried Cinnarch its pretty good. A bit nostalgic with the gnomish way but a much nicer to work with interface than gnome 3 IMO. Also The Chakra Project
has an update for you kde fans featuring kde 4.10. Havent got it downloaded yet but working on it
Whats new that you have discovered and or excited about Let us know.
