Try Mint Mate. It's the same Ubuntu under the hood, but prettier on the surface. But if you are looking for "light on resources", then Xfce is lighter.
As for Mint Mate, I don't know. I suppose first love is the best love. So I'll stick with this one.
I discovered that I have sound but only at my headphones. I'll wait for install definitely at the pc for start solving that. I still have to discover how hardware detection and drivers works.
How did you get the OS identify as Mac? Did you tamper with Midori's UA?
And does F3 do anything in Caja?
Yeap, sure it does, F3 gives you two separate panels, it adds a second tab. You can add more. Handy.
By the way, the specs of your laptop look weakish. How big is the screen? Maybe you could benefit from a considerably lighter desktop where you can launch apps always maximised? My 1GB RAM netbook looks like this.
Screen is 1440x900. Using the maximum resolution at 60hz. I'll have to try with a second monitor, I'm used to that for image editing software. Laptop it's an Acer Aspire 9420.

Firefox problems are not Linux-specific. Firefox crashes with the same error messages on all platforms.

The error message might be the same on all platforms but it never occurred to me on Windows since I'm using Fx alongside Opera Presto. I've started using Fx as soon as Opera anounced its move to Blink.
It would be interesting for Nix noobs like me to hear about some honest pros and cons regarding Linux vs Windoze.
There's a dirty trick right there.
I'll have a look at those videos Ersi, the command line (terminal, they call it in this system) seems to me to be where tricks are done for many things. I suppose it's used much more than a simple user will use it at Windows.

Most programs I use on a daily basis are cross-platform and don't differ too much from Windows and Mac OS.
You don't need to use it any more than in Windows. It's just so useful. Just try something like pngquant *.png in a GUI.
