LMDE 64bit is the first 64bit Operating System that I have ever used.
I haven't used 64bit of windows nor any other OS. Not until LMDE 64bit came out.
I wanted to try LMDE 32bit December release but have had problems with it. Can't get to GUI with just blank display. With compatibility mode, still black display but with blinking cursor. This happened on my Desktop. On laptop, 32bit reached GUI but have had problems with the touchpad. Can't click directly by just pressing the touchpad itself.
So I decided to try a 64bit OS for the first time. LMDE. Haven't tried it on my laptop, the 64bit, but on the desktop, no problem so far. I was able to reach GUI with livedvd. Installed it and it works extremely fast.
Though, I only have 1.5gig of memory, it feels like my system is extremely fast. Is this the reason why other users are very excited about 64bit edition of LMDE?
I can't believe that my system with 64bit LMDE works too damn fast. I have used LMDE 32bit on the same system, the previous release and its performance, boot time, responsiveness, is nothing compared to this 64bit of LMDE. It's too damn fast.
Before, I don't want to use 64bit OS since I've heard about some problems about 64bit OSes, specifically flash problems with 64bit OS. But with LMDE, flash is installed by default.
My next adventure would probably be installing proprietary driver of my nvidia video card, fx5500. Last time, I have problems with it with my LED screen, that won't fit well on my screen. Until I've read a guide of installing nvidia card for fedora, asked there about my problem and luckily, pointed to another link how to solve the problem. I asked before on Ubuntu and Mint's forum yet, haven't solved it. Though, the solution was for fedora, it did work on LM10 and probably will work on LMDE 64.
Adding "Modeline “1360×765″ 85.5 1360 1440 1552 1792 768 771 777 795 +hsync +vsync" on Monitor section and "Option “MetaModes” “CRT: 1360×765″" on Screen section.
Haven't tried it yet but I hope the same solution would work.
LMDE 64bit rocks............
Thanks a lot to the Linux Mint team and devs.........
