Quick Look: Linux Mint Debian Edition 201101

Filed under
Linux

I did a full review earlier of Linux Mint Debian Edition and loved it. Now there’s an update to it and I couldn’t resist doing a quick look. If you aren’t familiar with the Debian version of Linux Mint, you’re in for a real treat. LMDE has quickly become my favorite Linux distribution. It’s a great blend of Debian and Linux Mint.

What’s New

Here’s a sample of what’s new in this release:

All Mint 10 features -

64-bit support
Performance boost (using cgroup, the notorious “4 lines of code better than 200? in user-space)
Installer improvements (multiple HDDs, grub install on partitions, swap allocation, btrfs support)
Better fonts
