    *hmph* Guess I'll be trying Mint sooner, rather than later, then.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Just signed-up over at their forums and starting research now. Was thinking Mate, as I'm not looking for a new desktop experience at this time.

    If by any chance anyone from the MATE team is reading this: you guys did a superb job! Kudos!

    I've been messing with Mint 13 Mate, 32-bit, with the 686-pae kernel, for... I dunno... 3-4 hours--on and off. Haven't found anything to dislike, so far.

    I already do that for my HP laptop. I have to say among these DEs I've tried, KDE, GNOME3, Enlightment, Cinammon, Openbox, I like MATE the best. I confess that I am an old-style guy who really don't like the tablet concept of DE (Gnome3), therefore I choose to use MATE if I stick with Ubuntu12.04 LTS.

    I don't know why but my working desktop is slow with KDE (openSuse), and my old ASUS laptop is no working fine with Enlightment but great with Openbox(Crunchbang). I will try installing MATE on my old laptop/Debian based distro.
