Installing Linux Mint Debian – with an end goal of Debian & GNOME 3?

Has anyone done this? I tried installing straight Debian a few months ago and ran into wi-fi driver issues along with not being able to figure out which CD/DVD’s I needed to install w/o having to download massive quantities *during* installation. I realize this isn’t a problem for most people anymore, but I average 10-20k down, 40-60k on a really, really good day. As a result, I ended up back with Ubuntu 11.10 & now 12.04 w/ GNOME 3, since it works without massive install headaches & hours and hours and hours downloading just to get it to work.

Anyhow, Ubuntu 12.04 is about to come out and I know I’m going to end up upgrading to something in the next couple months and I think its time I gave Linux Mint a shot – I’d like to see what the fuss is all about, and I’d like to get on a more straight Debian, rolling release schedule for myself at least (though I’m really not sure what I’ll do for all my family/friends that I have setup on Linux these days).


Any suggestions?
