Re: Should LMDE version numbering follow Debian

I do know the reason for LMDE existence.

The suggestion was purely from a point that since its based on Debian, the number would clearly indicate the Debian version its based on at the outset.

Just purely for claritys sake.

Should LMDE version numbering follow Debian

Should LMDE version numbering follow Debian starting with LMDE 4? At least the Major number?
Suggest LMDE 4 should actually be LMDE 10.

Also sugggest LMDE 10 could be both Mate and Cinnamon.

You would have to install it yourself, and it would likely break your system. Perhaps the best alternative is to look at a distribution geared to old hardware, Antix or MX Linux, for example.
Well mxlinux has 4.19 and ditto antix ...
