Kinda what I'd hoped Mint would have done with LMDE, instead of basing it on Debian Testing -- but with certain apps that are more up-to-date than what you'd find in Debian Stable. I'm a big fan of Debian Stable and anything based on it. It'll be interesting to see what they do with Wheezy (and GNOME 3).

Looks like they'll be going to a Wheezy base soon after the Wheezy freeze, and then they'll have 4.8.x, but I don't mind 4.6.x at all -- I've had SalineOS running here since January 2011, and it's been great.

Not trying to be a contrarian but it was mentioned that this was 'Modern' distro. ??

I tried SalineOS, and kudos to them for making it, I hope it gets better in the future, but I could not warm up to that old version of Xfce.

Who's to say Debian isn't already the #1 distro? DistroWatch rankings?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think any other distro has as many distros based on it. Even Mint is ultimately a .deb distro.

Cinnamon is a Gnome Shell fork which will inevitably reduce Gnome + Mint compatibility in the future.
MATE will also suffer a bad fate imo because its a Gnome Fork.
We'll be using Gnome 3 classic mode with a lot of modifications. It will look and act exactly the same
as our Gnome 2 setup, requiring no hardware acceleration. I've begun porting the older panel/applet
libraries to use GTK3 and D-BUS meaning we won't loose any of the functionality previously found.
Long story short you'll be using the latest system and you won't be able to tell the difference.
