I went back to debian sid for awhile, but I'm no big fan of their no branding all software free philosophy. I switched to opensuse factory and ran kde until it updated to 12.3 m2 and kde rc1. At that point screenlocker had become a nightmare. I decided the best solution for now was to come back to Mint and run cinnamon. At least I can get it closed to gnome 2 behavior. so I will run this for awhile and make sure I to figure ouit the stuff my wife will have me adjust to her liking, as she has the same laptop as me. The I will switch mine over to lmde.

MATE, or xfce.
I must admit that I still use Ubuntu, presently 12.04, for my server, but of course that's without any desktop. If Mint comes up with a clean server version that works well, I'll use that. I'll rather support Mint than Ubuntu...
