Other notes:

Just a note to those following these reports: based on my experiences with it installed on my laptop IMHO Debian Wheezy isn't ready for prime time yet. Admittedly my problems are mostly GUI related:

Most of these are upstream problems that will be fixed upstream because of the impending release.

Regardless, GUI related or not, upstream at fault or not, Debian Wheezy isn't up to the standard I expect of Debian stable and I would feel uncomfortable installing it on a production machine. This is hardly surprising of course, since Wheezy isn't Debian stable, it's Debian testing.
