Just recently replaced an older Xubuntu 11.04 install, with #! Waldorf (w/XFCE), on a fairly new desktop PC. The performance gains are incredible, from startup to shutdown, and everything inbetween. Although I won't get into the specifics, unloading the *buntu middle man really makes a difference. Installer worked great and system working flawlessly.
Update:OK, here's what I've done - it seems to be working OK, but if anyone reads this and thinks that my system will die, then do please say so...I added the Waldorf repo to my sources.listIn my etc/apt/preferences file, I pinned Jessie at a priority of 1001 and Waldorf at a priority of -10.Hopefully this means that I'm essentially running Debian Jessie, and I can install any Waldo
