X was broken because it was looking in utterly the wrong location for fonts, a few packages (most notably Blender) are missing), and the keyboard is currently setup for US-English. Other than that, it's been fine. All of my settings etc. have been utterly preserved. Except for when I overwrote gdm.conf with some of that's settings.
Nice to have some *new* software at last though.
