i dont know. i think it would just be cool to have an elegant name to match the elegant styl of Linuxmint. LMDE isnt at all elegant a name.

OK, maybe I am being old fashioned, but I don't really care whether or not code-names (brand-names) are being attributed to particular products
--so, I would be annoyed if a # was used (Mint 8x, Mint10x) or as it is some acronym that references the distribution type, such as xfce or lmde or lxde

The big plus of staying with just plain LMDE is that it has already been picked up and recognized throughout the Linux community. :wink:

I've been calling it "Lembas" in my head, after accidentally typing it "lmbe".
:lol:

Anyhow I like LMDE in type, as it's short, the meaning is not ambiguous, and it's well recognized. But I don't look forward to using it in spoken conversation. It's cumbersome to say. I'll probably just say "Debian Mint". Of course if it had a *name* it would be even more cumbersome.

"Oh I'm using Zuzu Petals"
"what the heck is Zooz... ?!"
"It's the cute name for Linux Mint Debian Edition".

Plain old "LMDE" works great!!

It's a wonderful Distro, and one I've grown quite fond of. If you think it needs a CodeName. Give it one yourself.

For me, it's always going to be, "LMDE" :lol:
