Wow ... Just Wow ...

Postby Eggnog on Sun Oct 20, 2013 3:58 pm

So I installed LMDE. It went well. Then I updated. Oh boy. It just now finished dowlonading 1300+ updates. I kid you not. It took maybe an hour or so. Now it's installing them. Just to pass the time, I'm growing a beard while waiting for it to complete.

Is there an updated ISO I missed? I think I got 201303 or something.

no, you have latest ISO, but, this is how LMDE is.

It took another 30-40 minutes to install the updates after the download. It's running pretty well so far. Nothing surprising. Everything seems to work. This is my first attempt at MATE after using Cinnamon for so long. Plus, this ain't derived from Ubuntu. I have all kinds of learning curve going on here. But I'm up for it. Doesn't seem too bad at all. LMDE seems pretty quick, too, but maybe that's just the MATE talking, though.

I find it to be very stable, and I like not having to reinstall my OS. I know the UP's are big but it's only about twice a year. IMO it's worth it. I'm also using Cinnamon DE and it's just as smooth as LM main edition. :mrgreen:

Yes, Is sweet not to have to reinstall the OS. My UP7 went fine too, all is OK (after a few issues now solved). What a gorgeus OS is LMDE! 8)
