To start off I would like to say Linux Mint is the best version I have seen. I'm excited to see the Debian version using the testing repositories. If you ever get a chance look at Sidux Linux, they are doing the same thing and they have developed a very nice distro (KDE and not as good as Mint). I run 4 computers with mint and have two of them either dual boot or triple boot. I would like to set up a boot partition for the new Debian version, however I see no way to install it. If you will help me install it I will run it for awhile and keep you posted on how it is doing. I ran Sidux for about 4 months and never had a problem so I fell Mint can do even better. Put your nice polish and adapt the Mint utilities to this version and I think the potential is there to move further ahead of the other distros. Currently I am running a partition of Foresight linux to see what Gnome is coming up with and the version of Debian Mint will do the same thing only much better.
Keep up the good work and many thanks. This last year has been a great year for Linux.
