Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

From the Linux Mint Blog dated April 6, 2011:

"3. Are other editions going to switch to Debian?

Fluxbox will switch to Debian but remain minimalist in its default selection.

No decisions were made about LXDE and KDE yet, though switching them to Debian Testing would bring significant advantages to both the project and the users."

So no decision yet. I'll venture my personal guess to be that it will happen within the next 2 releases. Just my guess, so don't take it as truth.

I know what I am about to post is not exactly on topic but it is relevant so meh.

While waiting to see if KDE edition will move to debian testing base, the OP might like to check out Zevenos Neptune, a debian testing based KDE 4.6.2 distro. Its only been out a day or two and I haven't really had opportunity to play with it but it does look interesting.

BTW, if someone has a good tutorial for switching LMDE to a KDE desktop using the Debian Testing packages, it would be welcomed. I suppose installing package kde-standard or even kde-full would do the job, but a detailed walkthrought would be nice.
