I am running Debian 7.2 (Wheezy) and the laptop has performed very, very well. Network – both wired and wireless – works very well. My install is running the full featured KDE4 GUI with execellent screen resolution. I also have a fully functioning Apache web ser in which I test my PHP pages.

The Dell Latitude E5430 and Debian 7.2 is great combination.
