After using Ubuntu for 6 years I switched to Mint 11 last summer after not liking the direction Ubuntu was taking (Unity). I have been happy with it. It has a few known bugs that are annoying and that no one seems to care about (biggest one being random panel applets not loading at boot), but aside from that it has been stable. Until recently. From videos not displaying correctly or at all, to Facebook apps (Words with friends in particular) not displaying correctly to complete system lockups, it is becoming fairly unstable.
I run dual boot with Windows 7 and have no problems with it. I have a fairly new/powerful machine, but things seem to take a long time to happen.
I am at the point where I am considering making 7 my default OS so I don't have to deal with all these problems.
Is 11 support getting neglected for 12 or something? Is anyone else having more problems lately in 11? I really don't have the time to investigate why every one of these problems is happening and find a fix or work around for it.
