Am I the only one that thinks this process is insane?
I bet Clem has many days where he is saying "..if only I had taken the blue pill!!

What's wrong with trying to "tame debian" to a point that simplifies the use of a rolling distro...PcLinuxOs does that (they have few problems with it despite THAT being a rolling distro) because Texstar and his volunteers MAKE IT that way, so that it can be an easy to use rolling distro...
Is that such a terrible concept to you guys?
If it is...i really don't get it...

Here we go again! "Nightmare On Mint Street Four".
Every time Clem tries to make life easier for people, there seems to be a flurry of "this is confusing for me and my hybrid??"
This is just my personal opinion - LMDE was and is (paraphrasing) a rolling release distribution based on Debian Testing repositories with Linuxmint enhancements. If you cannot handle a degree of self responsibility in respect to package management; DO NOT ENTER HERE! Go and install standard Mint.
I realize that your post was meant to be dismissive and derogatory....
