- LMDE in brief
- Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a rolling distribution based on Debian Testing.
- It’s available in both 32 and 64-bit as a live DVD with a Gnome desktop.
- The purpose of LMDE is to look identical to the main edition and to provide the same functionality while using Debian as a base.
now you will notice that point 3 mentions the goal of lmde is to look identical to mint main editions. this is fine and overall it does.
what i want to know is why lmde has xfce version and mint main uses lxde.
I know main mint used to have a xfce mint 9 version. then there was a gap then they released an lxde i dont know why.
i feel xfce is better overall. it is best for being lightweight but also good look and feel. its a good comprmise between gnome / kde <-> openbox.
i think there needs to be a decision what to use so lmde and mint do look and feel the same. and either both have an xfce version or an lxde version.
This is just my thoughts on the subject.
