    If you want something decent and stable give openSUSE 12.2 a shot

    Well decent and stable is subjective as is all Linux to everyone.

    The Linux experience will be based on Users personality more than anything followed by knowledge then hardware and of course murphys law.

    personally i think there should be a distro called YMMV, it would solve a lot of complaints

    Yes, I have tried it and it works well on my computers. Good if you need to hide from enemies, but I think that the slow web connection via Tor is too frustrating for most people.

    I've been using MATE with 12.04 for months now. Quick, familiar, and pretty bug-free. It's easily installable from a PPA if you don't use Mint, as is Cinnamon. When I'm not using MATE, I am usually using KDE 4.9 (in the backports repos), since it's the best for playing full-screen games (IF you check off the "disable effects for full-screen windows" in the Desktop Effects controller (on the third tab)), according to Phoronix and my own personal experience. In that Phoronix test, Unity gave the slowest frame rate, BTW.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    Question Re: Gone back to 10.04!

    You could try installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or 12.10 and installing MATE or Cinnamon on that and using either one of those DEs instead of Unity, and there's also Xubuntu 12.04 LTS or 12.10, Lubuntu 12.10, or Kubuntu 12.04 or 12.10 to choose from.

    Could also give Arch or Slackware a shot if you got the time, skills, and patience, and Fedora 17 LXDE or KDE's a good candidate too, and you can install Cinnamon on it, and Fedora 18 will offer an official MATE spin, and an official Cinnamon spin, I think.

    There's also straight-up Debian, Crunchbang, or LMDE to try as well.

    That's interesting - what are steam going to do about this? Seems like a bad idea to pick the slowest DE for linux gaming.
