I am not interested in distributions meant to just play with it a few minutes, but thanks.
I typically like GNU&Linux distributions which work and are reliable. My 2 great favorites are Archlinux and PCLinuxOS, both rolling release, one for more advanced users (which forces me to make more efforts) and the other for people needing a stable and up to date system day to day. (PCLinuxOS is very stable, while having most current programs available in their latest stable version). Archlinux has many more possibilities, while some things may not always working perfectly without some work.
I am not in the advanced users section, but a newbie here, registered just about a week ago. I contribute in the PCLinuxOS distribution where I brought a standalone easy to use Openbox version, the same for advanced users as a very small (Bonsai), and a few more under the shape of versions of existing ones remastered to French.
If reverting back to a Mint 9 solves your problem then it is great. Maybe can you keep it until a newer one comes to fix the actual bugs that the latest has.
