yes, choose the 'right time' to upgrade.
figure out when is the 'right time', usually you must read some upgrade warning first , or else you can get caught.

for LMDE this is must read

and everything runs smoothly!

haha, I wish that is true.
expect the surprise!

Great. I am also thinking about moving to Mint Debian. How many times did you encounter a situation since 2004, where your sid stopped working or had a major problem due to updates? Does it happen often?


Stopped working? Never.

Major problem? depends on your definition, the worst I had to do was edit Xorg.conf in nano one time.

I did have sound stop working on DVDs once but it was fixed the same day.
