Linux Mint 12 installer crashed on my laptop (twice). yet Linux Mint Debian 201109 and Linux Mint 11 did not. You get the Linux Kernel 3.0.6 with Linux Mint Debian however.
I officially own PC-BSD 9 Isotope Edition. It brings KDE 4.7.2, Gnome 2.32, LXDE 0.5.7, and XFCE 4.8 on the freebsd 9 kernel. Review soon.
