Linux Mint Debian Edition XFCE 201204 impressions

Featured software

(Sequel to the Debian/Ubuntu-based Gnoppix 2.12 in 2005)

XFCE 4.8

Thundar File Manager 1.2.3

Firefox 11.0

Libreoffice 3.4.5

Thunderbird

Gimp 2.6.8

VLC 2.0

linux kernel 3.2.0-2-486

I miss that popup screen seen in Linux Mint 11 where I can download Broadcom WiFi firmware under unrecognized firmware on the taskbar. Linux Mint 13 Ubuntu is due out in May 2012. The login username for this LiveDVD is “mint”. I tried Debian distros before in 2005, but Debian was secretly under the name Knoppix 3.9 instead.

I know now that I have to stay with the regular Linux Mint s for this laptop. My Linux Mint 12 DVD crashes in install mode. I have to wait for Linux Mint 13.

Linux Mint Debian Edition XFCE 201204 is an okay operating system, yet Linux Mint 11 is a lot superior with working WiFi drivers and just as stable. Firefox 11 didn’t time out during surfing (with RJ-45) in Linux Mint Debian Edition XFCE 201204.
