I switched over to LMDE and am quite happy, it runs much better on my system. Only problem so far is that i couldn't install Spotify according to the instructions on the Spotify site. I would get this error: The following packages have unmet dependencies:
spotify-client : Depends: libssl0.9.8 but it is not installable. I was able to install this by downloading off the Debian Squeeze package site, https://packages.debian.org/squeeze/amd64/libssl0.9.8/download. Then i could install with apt-get. This might be common knowledge but i spent a bit of time googling to figure it out and i thought the info might help somebody!
