Debian based Mint - Question

Can I log directly into admin on the Debian distro of Mint?

I know you cannot under the Ubuntu version, but I'm not sure about the Debian version.

And does anyone know the last build update on the Debian version?

Thanks

Re: Richard Stallman on Ubuntu spying

Let's not forget the Mintified google search pages in Firefox/Chrome/ium which generate income for Mint and which you can't disable through a GUI. Canonical makes some questionable decisions but adding Amazon shopping support to the dash, and an option to disable it easily, is not one of them - it'...

Is there any body out there in the Mint Team with this minimum bit of information about a real problem that has already been known for a while now? Does Mint *remove* de ubuntu spyware trash code?
