My data is all on externals. So home is mostly dropbox and settings. I had a
few minor issues with compiz but nothing major. Many more issues with having
to start at ground zero on each install. Makes it a hell of a lot easier
than having to manually set up dropbox, chat, chrome, email etc... each
install. I have never had any major problems, which ones have you had?
