Perhaps you should be called "Don Sequitur" instead :-) Because, again, you seem oblivious regarding why one uses a rolling release.

After installing a Debian based distribution, I can have it completely configured and customized in less than 30 minutes.

Re: [SOLVED] Update Manager vs The Instructions

I always find it much easier to install the latest version of any Linux version such as Betsy-2 and then run my "easy upgrade program, ezup.sh".

Re: LMDE 2 - Best LM - at least for me!

My LMDE 2, Betsy Mate is also perfect for me. No problems at all. I like it a lot better than anything else that I have tried, including 17.1.

Re: full of bugs

I have been using LM17.1, LMDE-1 and LMDE-2-RC. I found a very few niggling bugs in LMDE-1 but I haven't found any in the RC, I think it is great and am looking forward to the Stable release. I am also running LM17.1 and have found bugs in it. All in all, I prefer LMDE by far.
