IMHO as you develop more "Mint" apps and become more independent moving to Debian Testing would be the best choice. The 6 month release cycle of Ubuntu and having to do major upgrades sucks. One of the many things I love about Gentoo is not having to worry about major updates/upgrades. You install it and all I do is every week - 2 weeks I update, I never worry about a complete system rebuild. Doing small updates along the way is so much cleaner and nicer.clem wrote:<snip.
Another suggestion was to rebase on top of Debian Testing. In the short term this would mean that we wouldn't be as up to date as we are now and we would lack a number of Ubuntu's innovations... but in the long term it would mean a stronger base and one that we don't need to upgrade every 6 months... since it would constantly move and upgrade itself beneath us.
