I've been away from Linux Mint for a while now, having used Windows and then back to a Lucid install. I was reading through the LMDE respin thread (x3, I guess) and heard a lot of mention of wanting different tools for installing and configuring display drivers, a remade backup tool, and a bunch of others that sound great!
I've been considering installing LMDE because it sounds like a sexier, easier, Debian, but I was wondering if the changes made in the next respin would be back ported (I guess) to the current version up? I understand that libraries and apps are continuously updated but couldn't find a definitive answer as to whether the tools would be. If not, would I just be better off waiting for the respin?
