    I am Looking for the following:

    Stability - Fedora like stability (I have NEVER had fedora crash on me)

    Usability - Ubuntu like Usability (aka gnome lol)

    Built in LUKS Encryption (Ubuntu alternative CD NEVER works for me.)

    Support for Broadcom or Alpha wifi cards.

    Is there a fedora Spin that has support for Broadcom or Alpha? The normal one won't connect to my SSID (WPA2 AES CCMP Hidden SSID).

    Any help would be appreciated :thumb:

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone:thumb: I will definitely check them out.

    Another thing (I should have mentioned in my FP) that has never worked for me. I can't see my SSID (Hidden) and trying to connect fails. (I hate broadcom :thumbd: ) My alpha half worked (only ever saw 2 AP's even though its a high gain and high range antenna) i will try it again.
