  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Extremely fast and responsive.

What doesn't work:

I did suffer from serious mouse and keyboard hangups after installing the nvidia drivers. It occurred frequently, within 10 minutes after booting.

I have some issues with opening files that were created using more recent versions of the Software I am using. As an example, none of the LMMS compositions I created on my ArchLinux running LMMS v 1.1.3 can be opened in LMMS 1.0.0.

What was done to make it work:

I re-installed Linux Mint 17.2, but this time I did not go for the dedicated nvidia drivers. No hangups experienced since then.

I have found a way to install a newer version of LMMS
