The Linux Mint crew continues maintaining Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) as a fall-back should anything ever happen to Ubuntu or their ability to deliver an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution. Available now in beta is Linux Mint Debian Edition 4.

The Linux Mint Debian Edition 4 is re-based against Debian 10 "Buster" with a variety of other improvements like the ability to easily boot with the NVIDIA proprietary driver. Linux Mint Debian 4 does offer its latest Cinnamon desktop environment, XApps, and other refinements compared to running upstream Debian GNU/Linux.

Linux Mint Debian 4 is codenamed "Debbie" and the beta details can be found via the blog. LMDE continues being offered in both 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.
