If you are a fan of Linux Mint and their GNOME/GTK-forked Cinnamon desktop but prefer not having the Ubuntu base, Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 "Cindy" is now available.

One month after going into beta, LMDE 3 Cindy is officially shipping with a Debian package-set while including the latest Cinnamon desktop.

Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 is based on Debian 9 "Stretch" but with the Mint and Cinnamon desktop bits added in. LMDE is only supported with bug fixes and security fixes from Debian packages and no LMDE point releases.
