  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Live USB boots quickly, goes online through a generic PCI wi-fi card (don't know chipset).
Preference edits work fine.
nouveau driver works great with 3 installed Nvidia 9500 cards. No visual artifacts anywhere, even the screen savers work without locking up.

Maya 13 Xfce 64-bit is fast all around, it's a shame the update servers are turning off this year. I'm gonna make a reasonably updated image and save it for future installations on customers' computers.

What doesn't work:

Can't login to Community from stock FF12 - says password is invalid.
In Synaptic package manager, "Show for individual files" really doesn't work for me.

What was done to make it work:

Used FF 3.5(!) from MacOS to write this review.

Additional notes:

C2Q, 4 GB DDR2 ECC, Nvidia 9500.
