Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) Preview:
From Mint’s site: LMDE also represents an alternative, with the same desktop, the same functionality, but a different base, and a difference in hardware support and compatibility.

  • Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a rolling distribution based on Debian Testing.
  • At the moment, it comes as a 32-bit live DVD with a Gnome desktop.
  • The purpose of LMDE is to look identical to the main edition and to provide the same functionality while using Debian as a base.

About the Installer: The live installer is developed from scratch with Debian in mind. It’s configurable and it can be re-used by other Debian-based distributions.

Dedicated chat room: #linuxmint-debian is open to new LMDE users on
