If/when I start, I'm starting with GoboLinux... I've always been interested in that Distribution, but after the joke that was SourceMage, I've not looked forward to re-doing a primary OS.

Moving it to a VM and doing your best to use it primarily sounds fun, and pain free :).

I've heard a lot of great things about it, and I'm excited to give it a try.

@phoenyx- The 6 months is so I can really get to know the distro on a personal level inside and out. I'm afraid 4 months just really wouldn't be enough time.

If you have any questions, drop by Freenode IRC #foresight and let us know. You're probably right in that we do have less packages than some of the larger distros, but Conary makes it pretty easy to package new ones, so if there's something you're looking for let us know.

I have noticed, however, that it is missing a lot of packages compared to Debian Sid, which I'm running currently. That may take some getting used to.
