Thank you for making available this professional-grade forum. I'm a semi-experienced Debian/Ubuntu user looking at Mint seriously for the first time.
I'm contemplating installing XFCE on a number of machines, and am trying to sort through the pros and cons of which distro to base my images on. I am a huge fan of APT, and am learning packaging.
I having successfully experimented with remote install (PXE with preseeding) and very much enjoy that method of installation. Is that simple with LMDE?
My larger question, though, is:
Between LMDE and Debian Stable, which would be easier to maintain a bunch of machines over the next five years? I expect my users will not care for many new features (unless there's some next Big Thing (tm)). Fresh, quality security updates (don't break my X!) are my top priority.
