Hi all, currently I am Windows user (don't kill me for that) but I am looking for to start with dualboot and later maybe I will pure linux user (yeah
). After time I spent on searching for linux distro which meet my requirements (technical/personal/beauty), I want to start using LMDE as is Debian based and use Cinnamon which looks great for me. As I didn't find any information (maybe bad usage of google/search dialogs there) I want to ask if it is possible to download LMDE 2 ( I know that it is under development now ) or just I need to wait until some later version (beta, rc,..). Thank you very much in advance
You just are going to have to wait. Somewhere I think Clem said they were not going to make Betsy available in beta/alpha form, because then they would have to spend a lot of time supporting users, rather than just getting it done.
It sounds like LMDE Betsy might be ready soon (like maybe next month), but you never really know (it's been more than a year now). If you're anxious to get going, you might want to just try regular Mint. Yes it's based on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is based on Debian, so it's pretty similar. The Cinnamon experience I think should be exactly the same and under the hood it's going to be pretty close also.
For a new Linux user, I think I really can't recommend LMDE until it updates. It's really out of date, with a lot of old software. So I don't think it's very secure, in many respects. Also the install media is now a year old. So immediately after installing, you would have a huge update to do (I think) and this could just be a mess. It's not what you want your inaugural Linux experience to be. And then who knows how smoothly the upgrade to Betsy will go, when it comes. There are inevitably bugs at first. Probably also not the best experience for someone new to Linux.
So if you don't mind waiting a few months for Betsy (or more) that's fine. Otherwise, I think regular Mint is a very good choice and really the way to go. Also since there is a much larger user base for regular Mint, you'll get a lot more support for any questions you have in the forums (more people to answer questions, more questions already answered).
Good luck. I hope you enjoy whatever you do.
