I've been trying out PCLinuxOS XFCE 'Phoenix', which solved many external hard-drive & flash-drive problems I had with Ubuntu 10.04/LM9 Isadora, which seem to be GNOME related.
I tried to install LMDE, but it wouldn't get past the partitioning stage. Maybe I got a dud or pre-Alpha version. However, I need an OS that'll work with a USB modem & printer-drivers (.deb/cups), but since Debian Stable doesn't seem to recognise .deb packages, I may give LMDE a wide berth.
So I may try Isadora XFCE when the website is accessible again: at least I know that my hardware will work with it: Xubuntu can allegedly run in little more than 200MiB RAM, which is well impressive, so the Mint version must be similar.
If all else fails, I guess I'll use Dban Beta - http://www.dban.org/
- maybe the best Linux OS so far!
