The Mint Linux Debian KDE edition sounds just like what I am waiting for!
When can we expect betas or RC's? Can't wait to try this!
gustaff wrote:@thenewguy and others. If you want to use SOX for mp3 the latest version in the repos is 14.3.2-1 (and included in the repos is libsox-fmt-mp3 14.3.2-1). So I'm not sure what you are talking about. You may want to check the repositorys before commenting on them?
gustaff wrote:@thenewguy I fully understand if you don't know what I am talking about since I should have refered to a comment by rec1940 regarding mp3. I apologize for this
thenewguy wrote:Regarding the move to a Debian base, does anyone know if the Debian version of Mint supports Ubuntu's Software Center and the software available for purchase through that channel? I know several small software makers use (or are looking to use) Ubuntu's store for distribution and I'm curious if that will be an option open to Mint users in the future?

The problem with Testing is that at the beginning of the production cycle (right now) it can occasionally break (towards the end it tends to be rock-solid, though). This is not a huge issue for the experienced user but it can be a show-stopper for newbies and clearly it does not conciliate well with the original Mint concept. What I would propose for Mint would be Debian Stable with official backports plus extended backports from the Mint repos.
