I know EXACTLY how you feel. I have to work with crackmonkey clients. Both 
itblows and snapple. They keep saying how there's SO much more software for 
them and yet none of it is useful. Just games. Useless file managers (all 
hail Konqueror, which is aptly named) and the CLI (via konsole).

I do like to run different distros but I only use one for work. Currently Ark 
Linux 2008 and Ali's BigDaddy. I'm hoping to retire Ark for BigDaddy or 
Slackware if and when TDE makes it there. I hope to gain enough skill to do 
it meself.

Cheers and happy father's day to all,
