I experiment a lot with alle sorts of distro's on a more then two (multiboot) system.
My 'home-distro' was PCLOS 2010 Gnome.
I also like 'Zorin' (Ubuntu/Debian).
I was very content with Mint 6 and Mint 8. 8 is still on this machine. PCLOS had the MBR of the system
(ext3 Grub1 no problem).
I use LMDE for some months now at the same time. And for one month it is my default distro.
LMDE is certainly the best linux I know. There is nothing negative
to report from here.
NVidia was a little puzzling. The fan didn't slow down. But that was not too difficult.
The system here has to refresh sites in a browser (mostly Firefox, but als Opera of Chrome), it has to
refresh a lot of feeds in a feedreader, there's the fetch of quite some email, I play music or video
at the same time (never stops like in Mint 6 or 8 ), I write on forums at the same time, I use editors,
I search the web, do some chess, do all sorts of file-work etc. etc. 16 hours a day and never LMDE
I think if you let it do this for some weeks it is still right without reset. Extremely stable.
Good applications and a lot of them, in spite of 'no Ubuntu'.
Only miss: Moonlight
. I tried several times, but it does not work.
And there are sites switching to Silverlight
For instance: http://www.rtl.nl/xl/#/u/ef84e6e6-8920- ... ab27a440dd
(I put it on 'squeeze' instead of 'test' in source.lst and updated after that.)
Great! Nothing to wish left for my situation. Thanks a lot Clem and crew.
(I don't know if this is the right place to report. Please move when necessary.
