I've been running LMDE 64bit from almost the word go and the first thing I did was install Xfce as a desktop (I can't get on with Gnome and I like the right click drop-down menus). I've never had much problem with it and it's very stable. Does anyone know what benefits I'll gain if I switch from my homebrew to the official Mint Xfce? I read that we will have things like VLC but we've got apt-get and synaptic for that. Should I download the latest or will I be just wasting bandwidth?
Mint is a great distro and as I've said before on this forum, I've stopped distro hopping because of Mint Debian, perhaps I should try the Xfce, just to keep my hand in.
I'd be grateful for any expert input.
