    Running debian squeeze now. Earlier, I was running Debian lenny. Before that, tried kubuntu for a couple of years, but did not like it finally. Now, gnome more suits my need and I want to keep my system simple and stable that Debian provides me. I am liking it.

    Okay.
    So I switched to LMDE-Gnome 1st version yesterday from My beloved Mint 9 *Sob. Easy install, good taste of Debian + Mint beauty.
    Almost same at first sight, unless you open a console and look inside .

    Differences :
    Now, my bcm4312 wireless card has not been detected automatically coz' of no inbuilt drivers, will have to download and install it later. So no wireless internet as of now.

    I enabled desktop effects but still they are not in action , darn, something I must have missed.

    No boot-splash, I think I need to install it by my own, will do soon.

    Other than that, it's faster - much faster. It used just ~200 MB while idling, wow.
    I was used to of seeing > 500 MB in Linux Mint 9. And yeah, I'm happy to have grub installed by default.

    It's been almost 7 months since the new poll started and I'm still running Arch, and continue to remain quite happy with it!
