I use Fedora. You get bleeding edge software, which is good when you get new 
features, and bad when you find out things broke.

To enable auto login, just edit /etc/gdsm/custom.conf and add:


to the bottom, replacing 'username' with the user you want to auto-login.

Run Fedora if you like being bleeding edge and always having the latest of 
everything. If you don't like constantly upgrading, I do not recomend using
