The way I see it is that ubuntu keeps adding 'alcohol' while I just want grape juice.
While main edition tries to take off the alcohol from the wine to deliver to me a nice grape juice, LMDE gets the watter, the grapes and makes me the juice.
Now tell me, would you prefer a grape juice made out of water and grapes or a wine gone trough a process of de-alcoholify(<wut?)?
Also its 5am and I'm starting to have some hallucination so good night : )

I installed LMDE with great hopes, only to have them dashed when <something> (who knows what?) trashed my Master Boot Record. This was a deal killer for me...
