Thanks Chris, that basically clears my doubts.. I'll give it another go at LMDE testing and see how that goes.

Re: Jumping to Testing or Sid

Hi zerozero, thanks, but I was more interested on how that works under the hood: if lmde and sparkylinux/#! are both pointing at the debian repos, what differentiates them, aside the graphical environment?

Hi guys, what's the difference between running LMDE with the testing repos and running a Debian testing based distro like Sparkylinux or Crunchbang?
