Ha ha ha not me, works fine with nomodeset, packaging is headache, even for dev package, you need to install them one by one, in debian/ubuntu, all you do is apt-get install build-essential and everything is pulled in. Even for Skype, every package has to be installed separately. Same for Flash. pakman is a disappointment, older mplayer packages and there is no ppa for getting new ones, otherwise very nice polished gnome and kde, the later rocks once you got nvidia installed.
