from LMDE to Debian, a long journey home

Postby rudar on Fri Sep 28, 2012 2:25 am

Hello from Croatia! I have begun my adventure in GNU/Linux with LM 11, one year ago. After several attempts with Live DVD and USB, I decided to install it as my only OS. It served me well for couple of months, I was satisfied, but then I decided to take the next step and opted for LMDE. Somehow I don't like Ubuntu (it's not just because of Unity) and I also preferred a rolling distro.
It was just last week when I made another important step in my brief GNU/Linux career and I passed through the big upgrade, from UP 4 to UP 5, without any trouble. I don't believe it's my merit, though, it's because of great work done by the Mint developers. I am happy with LMDE, Mate is an excellent choice for me, but I admit one day my heart will be at ease when I finally settle with Debian.
I do believe in your work, because you have offered us a great distro, with excellent tutorials and many kind people willing to help. However, I regard LMDE as a 'little Debian', which is fine and helps me to learn about some 'big brother's' whims. So, I am here to learn, slowly but steadily, before going on. At the end, let me introduce my hardware:

Yeah, I use LMDE as my 'stable' system. All of the other linux OSes that I use are just for fun. I always end up booting up in LMDE to get my work done.

Hi rudar, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews). You can also chat in real-time with other LMDE users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-debian for support with other LMDE users. You can also type "/join #linuxmint-chat" to join the chat channel.

Have fun with Linux Mint.

Hello everybody! Thank you for your kindness (at the very beginning, a very useful tip from Vincent). I am just a modest user, but it makes me proud to be a member of the Mint community. Although I admit I am here mostly because I am still very insecure about installing pure Debian, I will definitely use this opportunity to learn more. And I will definitely spread the word about LMDE, inviting others to join us. So, I am looking forward to our little adventure. Cheers!

Hi all,

I am from Hong Kong. LM mate 32 bit is my first choice till now as a substitue for Windows 7. I really hate win 7 for its time consuming update which hinders me from turning of my computer on and off.
Though I also found some issues for updating the LM mate, I still find it simple and stable enough for my daily works.

Thanks for the crew for developing LM which I found linux is really usable as a desktop distro other than Windows.

Thanks! :lol:

Hello, VincentHo. I opened this topic to introduce myself and you followed in my footsteps, instead of opening your own topic. Also, you apparently don't use LMDE. But never mind, welcome! I am inviting you to join me on LMDE.
