I was busy with my first serious Bad Linux Experience - trying to find out what is wrong with newest Linux Mint LMDE. It was the desktop manager or something that was horribly slow and drawn out installation horribly and stuff. On the next day I installed Fluxbox on it and I had trouble with it, I discovered that half of stuff that I try to apt-get has some conflicts that prevent it from being installed or tries to uninstall system-critical stuff. Awesome, a suicidal distro.
Yesterday I installed Anti-X instead that comes with Fluxbox from the start. Had to reinstall it a few times because installing it without formatting the home partition resulted in an unconfigured desktop without any programs available.
Then I tried to install the NVidia graphics card drivers (I had to use a script for it!) and every time it broke X11. I tried various options, nothing worked.
Several reinstalls later I gave up on trying to fix it.
Oh and the default files manager was so awesome that it didn't even allow to copy-paste and drag and drop stuff. Hello? 80s have called, they want their distro back.
The only upside was that it had ~3% processor use when idle and with system monitor on.
The interface was horrible too.

Finally, when browsing the internets in search for the solution to the driver problem, it turned out that nVidia has dropped the support for older GeForce cards and the newest X11 won't work correctly without new drivers. Awesome. Thanks a lot for telling me guys before I wasted two days and CDs. I mean, it's pretty big news and it doesn't happen every day. They could have mentioned it in release notes or something. But neither Mint nor Anti-X did.
So, finally, I have downloaded the last version of Linux Mint that works without these new nVidia drivers and burned the CD and installed it today. So, I'm back.

Good to see you too [:D] . My main problem here is with the Linux distro guys. It's kinda understandable that Nvidia doesn't want to support 9-10+ years old video cards any more. It's still good that they did it for such a long time. The thing that annoys me is that the people who make Linux distros didn't consider it to be important news.
And that apparently people with old cards will be left behind with security updates and stuff like that because the new X11 must have new video card drivers.
Generally, one would think that free OS would be quite popular with people who buy used hardware.
