A co-worker installed FreeBSD recently, and also said that it had 
Tetris.  I believe that he's got a pretty powerful machine, well >

Personally, I think that all the "automatic" detection and "fancy 
screens" are cute, but I prefer the Slackware distro.  I always have. 
 With Slackware, you have to specify each individual package you 
want to install.  It's a nice way to "guarentee" that you aren't 
installing a bunch of crap you'll never use.

My $0.02
