    Phoronix: Linux Mint Debian Edition 4 Released - Finally Supports SecureBoot, Home Encryption

    The Linux Mint crew has released LMDE 4 "Debbie" as their hedge against anything dramatic happening to Ubuntu that would limit their ability to offer Linux Mint and for those preferring the upstream Debian base...

    This is great, Debian based and not Ubuntu based!
    But if it would've came with the best desktop environment (KDE Plamas) it would've been perfect!

      Danny3 Mint gave up on KDE...

      Ubuntu is now even more involved in GNOME and Debian. Eventually some of that work will go into Mint

        MX does all that and so much more. Even gives you a choice of whether to use systemd or not at boot time. One of the really nice features is the ability to add all your drivers and change your kernel and add any packages while in the live environment, and press a button to install with all of your changes and additions intact. MX gives you two tools to make your live environment or your installed system into your own live USB to install on other systems or to hand to a friend to let them try out.

        Plus it defaults to a light, beautiful, customized XFCE environment instead of a bloated Gnome-based DE.

              You get the really nice Mint tools like Timeshift by default, and of course Mint's much better installer than what Debian uses.

                How can they afford working in two distros? they are just a handful of developers... with so many alternatives out there... poor linux mint I bet it could use those resources somewhere else!

                  For you it may be the best, but not for me. Please don't state something is "the best". Ever. Because there will always be people who disagree.

                    Except when something is actually the best and no one can possibly disagree without losing all credibility. KDE for example.
