Make Mint Convertible from Ubuntu

Postby fxb3 on Sat Jan 07, 2012 2:34 pm

Since Mint is based on Debian and Ubuntu, would it be possible to develop a converter method/process to convert from Ubuntu (10.04 for example) to a relative version of Mint without doing a complete backup and then fresh install of Mint and all the applications used when the system was running on Ubuntu?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Yes that is possible and should only take a few minutes.
