What will happen when the next Debian becomes stable (7 Wheezy)? Will I still be having a (semi) rolling release assuming that I'm on latest or will my LMDE freeze?
thanks in advance!
The right answer to your first question is NOTHING.
When Debian wheezy becomes stable, Debian testing is gonna change its name to Jesse, and its users are gonna face lots of updates and will likely have some breakages (they call this "fun"). However LMDE users won't notice any change, as their systems won't get any updates from Debian testing til the next Update package is released (I guess the next UP will be released 6-8 weeks after wheezy stable is released). You will have your "semi-rolling distro" as usual (I don't agree with people who say that LMDE is a semi-rolling distro because LMDE hardly ever gets updates) and LMDE will be as frozen as it is now.
The only thing that might change is that LMDE users might get update packages more often (maybe every 6 - 8 weeks... do not expect to get update packages every 15 days or every 30 days, a Linux Mint team is a small team, they are working in some different projects and I don't think LMDE is their main priority)
