  Works perfectly
What works:

LM16 Petra + XFCE works perfectly, no issues to report.

LM15 Olivia + Cinnamon works perfectly, no issues to report.

LM14 Nadia + Cinnamon had an upstream bug with network printing.

LM13 Maya + Cinnamon Desktop running perfectly following August'12 updates.

LM12 (Gnome3) disaster. Regresssed back to LM11

LM11 (Gnome2) Everything worked straight out of the box.

What doesn't work:

LM14 inherited a bug from Ubuntu with network printing.

LM13 + Cinnamon is now stable following the software updates provided in August 2012.

MATE is still very clunky and does not like the touchpad !

LM12 with Gnome 3.2 has bugs in Nov-11 release affecting Webcam (neither Cheese nor Ekiga recognize the built in Webcam) and also Banshee which causes the desktop to freeze after 15-20 minutes of streaming from internet. Uninstalled and regressed back to LM11.

LM11 No faults found.

What was done to make it work:

No fixes required since LM16 + XFCE installed.

LM13 + Cinnamon and accepted all software updates in August-12.

Additional notes:

2Gb RAM Upgrade installed.
