After starting at it's launch I have decided to give up using LMDE...
not because of what it is but the lack of support regarding update issues
If you search my name in here your find a number of postings regarding update 6 issues.
I was running it in both 32 and 64 bit versions 5 different PC.
For example my sound blaster live card ( possible the most popular card of it's time and I have two so not hardware ) does not work correctly in LMDE 32 or 64 with update 6 but in Mint 14 it works completely correctly from the live CD !!!!!!!
This is not a "rough edge" but a failure.
Other basic issues that should have been fixed ages ago include:-
Why do I have to still have to add the same lines to a conf file just to share a file on the network after how many updates ?
Why do I have to install an extra program to just auto mount my second drive ?
Why does it sometimes boot sometimes ask for password at start and sometimes not?
And the lack of reactions to request for help or non useful comments remind me of my time in a Debian forum where they tried to convince that because I couldn't install Debian on my eeepc that it was in fact netubootin that was broken even though every single distro I tried worked fine........( btw none of the official ways worked either have never even tried Debian since ) .
I know this sounds like a rant but I'm just providing feedback and I loved what Lmde was all about. However the whole point of rolling distro doesn't work for me. My experience is that the updates are in fact down grades that break things that used to work fine.I think it was one of the Mint team that had the moto "if it ain't broken don't fix it" ?
One last detail --I love Cinnamon but I'm I the only one that think it's insane to not have a one click way to add extensions or applets ????
And as a last point if you can spare the 45 mins I recommend every one that wants Linux to flourish watch this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sh-cnaJoGCw
I really want things to get better but we seem to be so far away still
