2 sides of the coin:
a) Another distro is good news for freedom and GNU/Linux as an ecosystem.
b) Yet another distro? or another Debian derivative?  :-P

Live sessions are fun  ;-) and we can test the distro (or work with it as pleases)

The issue is to make a group of users on either. You have to push some $kype guys here to make this one work.

Please help me in finding an ideal linux distro..
I have been using Ubuntu for a year nearly and would like to switch to some other OS just for a change. I need a simple and light OS without any complications and with least graphics. 

I tried debian first.. but it doesnt recognise my Wifi.. Also i had to search a lot for command lines to enable it.. all in vain.
I tried Puppy Linux .. Its too simple and i didnt like its file manager. I found it difficult to copy and paste a file.
Next was Lubuntu.. Here also the wifi issue was there ( though with Ubuntu it worked quite fine)

Please Help me !!

Agreed +Alessandro Ebersol ,freedom of choice is a great thing and comparing distros is much like comparing oranges with oranges. It's all good.Computers are tools,select the right one for the job ;-)

What is the FOSS community really? A group of like minded people or a group of people who just happen to use the same OS? Or is it all inner twined?

Agree with Guillermo, but I see it somewhat corrupted by the corporatism of IT companies. Open source took over, and Free Software is a second class citizen these days.

I've never personally been tied to LTS, but my primary machine is 12.04 right now. Not sure yet if I plan on upgrading to 14.04 yet. I've gotten very comfortable with my system the way it is.
