A month with LMDE

Post by borgio3 »

Introduction
In previous articles i said that Linux Mint is an excellent, superior GNU/Linux Distro, in whatever available released version. Two years ago i wrote a user Guide for LMDE, that you can see here.
Two months ago the new LMDE was released, so i'm here to show you my experience with it. In this brief review i will say about system installation, apps installation, updating the system, and so on. Moreover i show you what i had made in a month with Linux Mint Debian Edition, that people call simply LMDE.
Good reading :-)

Oh No....
Please don't misunderstand.... :) I opened it in Google Chrome and it was all in its native language -- Italian.
I had to use Google Translate. You did a fine job.... ;)
Thank You !
