I have always wanted a distro in-between long term support and cutting edge.
Say one that uses the kernel/command line part of a long term distro and the gui and gui apps of a cutting edge distro (maybe 1 back from the cutting edge).
An kernel upgrade cycle of say 3 years, but a GUI that stays current within it's release.

If you want something new, why do you think when CentOS 6 comes out it
will be new ? And for how long ?
Either you stick with Fedora/Ubuntu and have something new, or you just
want to _use_ your computer and go with something less new like
CentOS/Ubuntu LTS. There is no middle path.
