  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Everything with one exception

What doesn't work:

Graphics card won't support compositing with default drivers loaded at installation. Has an ATI Radeon X300/X500/X1050 card that uses Catalyst drivers but am hesitant to modify driver packages as I don't want to brick the system as I did when I turned on compositing.

What was done to make it work:

Running default drivers without compositing enabled. Fine but without eye candy or smooth video.

Additional notes:

Debian is so lean and powerful! Long live MATE!
