Linux Mint Debian 201303 RC Sneak Peek

Filed under
Linux

Linux Mint Debian 201303 RC is has been released. Linux Mint Debian is one of my favorite distros, so I’m very happy to see an update to it.

If you aren’t familiar with it, here’s a brief description:

* Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a semi-rolling distribution based on Debian Testing.
* It’s available in both 32 and 64-bit as a live DVD with MATE or Cinnamon.
* The purpose of LMDE is to look identical to the main edition and to provide the same functionality while using Debian as a base.

Note also that Linux Mint Debian Edition is a rolling release. Once you install it, you won’t need to upgrade in the same sense that you’d have to upgrade a version that is based on Ubuntu. You can get it in 32-bit or 64-bit live versions, and you can also choose between the MATE and Cinnamon desktop environments.

I downloaded the MATE version for this sneak peek.
