I'm running LMDE separately just to get my feet wet with it before I decide whether I want to keep it around. I'm kind of liking the idea of installing the OS once, get it where I want it, and not worrying about installing a new Mint upgrade release (Mint 17) in the spring. My question is this: If I decide to replace Mint 13 with LMDE, can LMDE use my /home partition without a bunch of problems?
I would, of course, back up the /home partition and also copy it over to an external drive just for redundancy's sake. Will LMDE pick up any themes and other such things from my Mint 13 installation? Or is using the Mint 13 /home partition even a good idea.
