It is the only desktop that I use anymore. Also, it appears to run very well on different distributions. Right now I run mostly WattOS, which will be soon coming out with a new release, R6 - 64-bit. R5 (64-bit) is very clean and fast, and the WattOS developer personally answers questions on the Watt forum....like it so much that I'm thinking about running it on my desktop.

Will the next KDE and Xfce (and possibly Fluxbox) editions be based on Maya, or will they finally be migrated to LMDE?
Edit by Clem: Mint 13 will feature KDE and Xfce editions."

Your welcome. I think it is going to be a great operating system. It may have a little extra weight but anyone considering a 64-bit system should have adequate resources to basically just store a few extra libraries. It certainly has that Mint smoothness and reliability. I already did a remastersys and installed my com@seppalta - Thanks for this write-up.

I think this may be more a function of the browser-system combination, than just the operating system. Firefox and the latest Lubuntu do not work well together, which is probably why Lubuntu comes with Chromium. WattOS comes with Midori, which has been greatly improved and is very light and fast. However, it has some little things like not displaying bookmark icons well which I do not like. Otherwise, WattOS R5 has been just as smooth and light as Mint LXDE....in terms of web browsing. Lubuntu, for me, was subject to frequent random hangs which on LM12 LXDE are a rarity (not altogether vanished, though).
