"If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence."

I found this exact same behaviour. Well, I was running a Live CD session, but apart from that, I know exactly what you're talking about.

I thought this was, sorry. Always has been a general thing in the past. This post is marked as 'solved' for what it's worth. Hope it's some help.

+1 - Good suggestion. It has a few quirks but is the best I've used in GNU/Linux.

I imagine the Apple one will work but it'll just be over-priced. You could maybe ask at the store.

There are quite a few questions relating to the BCM4313 chipset performance problems. Here's one picked at random. Do a search on this site for BCM4313 and you'll find an answer.

So far as I know, if you're not using the mini.iso you mention there's no way to do this. You could do a lot of apt-get remove once you're done installing the 'full' version mind you. It's obviously not ideal though. What wireless chipset do you have? Do you have an ethernet port?

It hasn't been the smoothest ride IMHO. @Alain: 'Ubuntu Classic' didn't work on my hardware that well either. Unity. Well, I should keep my mouth shut I guess. It is free after all.
