dailykos.com: Granular offers a visually stunning KDE, certainly the nicest implementation of it in any distro I've yet reviewed; once everything is configured, you enter an alabaster screen that loads all the modules necessary to run the liveCD.
wafaa.eu: The guys and gals over at openSUSE have been beavering away at enhancing a tool that is invaluable to the Bongo Project and many many others - the openSUSE Build Service (OBS for short). One of those enhancements is enabling statistics so packagers can see if the sweat and tears has been worth it.

Raiden's Realm: Having become a fan of PcLinuxOS after a recent review of their 2007 version, I've followed its development with interest.
