I've a distro on my laptop, for day to day usage.
I have a different distro on a USB, for a specific security threat.
I've a third distro on DVD, for a different security threat.
I'm waiting for the CIA/NSA telecommuting distro to be updated, to deal with a

fourth type of security threat.

Except FC18. I found these while looking for an answer to my problem.
Seems it's not just me. Language warning

Gentoo and kubuntu
Authored by: Anonymous on Saturday, February 23 2013 @ 11:00 AM EST
I use Gentoo on my desktops and kubuntu on some of my laptops. (I may count
variants of debian on my arm systems [Raspberry Pi?])

Gentoo may not be top 12, but it works just about everywhere. My thumb drives
and CD/DVD boot disks are X optional. I get to decide when I want to deal with
upgrade breakage, and portage is a really nice system to keep track of
everything I need.

Kubuntu is great for when you want every feature of the laptop to just work on
install. For my wife and kids, it is a low hassle install, as long as I do
updates regularly. I do have a thumb drive with kubuntu on it.

I confess to being unfamiliar with the debian package and control file layout.
There is always something that bites me, hard, whenever I deal with debian. For
me, it is just too hard to configure. (That goes triple for Gnome! Active
dislike!)
