I have opted for another distribution, Kubuntu. On a regular basis I use Debian, so this choice was not made in vain. Other issue that made me change was the debut of the official Portuguese mirror located at Universidade do Minho, where I study.
After installing, I have created a small report of features(I will include the link later) that I witnessed to work and are presently configured on my Laptop. Since no one has, for example, a really good tutorial how to configure a Portuguese keyboard layout on a Apple PowerBook G4, and all information is sparse on the internet, my report/tutorial may help (mainly for those who live in Portugal). I will try to improve my documentation and configuration, as well as to translate it from Portuguese to English. When that happens, you will know ;).
