LMDE. LMD...blah, blah, blah Its Mint Debian!

Post by voss749 »

Mint Debian is short to the point, and summarizes what it is better than anything else I can think of.
Thats what it is on the front page and it works to signify that Mint Debian is sufficiently different from other mint versions
that a slightly different name is warranted.

What are you saying, we should stop saying "LMDE" and just say "Mint Debian"?

Same Question.
And LMDE sounds and looks better than Mint Debian.

I don't think there's any confusing referring to it as LXDE.*

I think it would be great if we were to get ideas from the community for a new name and cast a vote. Imagine how excited people would be in having the power to choose its name, even if they chose the current name!

I would trust that the name that ALL of us came up with would be pretty awesome! :wink:

Actually, I hope that we will soon be able to refer to this Debian-based Mint as simply Mint. :wink:

I admit to being frustrated with some of the negative attitudes on the Debian forums. It seems there is a small core of users there who have forgotten what grows a community, that being more participation. I certainly hope members here will be more welcoming toward Debian users, should any of them care tom participate here.

I generally hate this "War" between the Distrousers.
We all using a Linux Kernel and a Distro optimized to how we personally like it.

Gentoo, Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, all are great Distros in its own Way.
Share and change things is one of the things that make Open Source so great.

So why don't we all call it whatever we want to as an individual users? People are smart enough to figure things like this out on their own. :)
If you don't like it, make something better
If you can't make something better, adapt
If you can't do either ball your panties up and cry.

Complaining is like masticating most anyone can do it.
However doing it in public is really hardcore.

Referring to it as an edition is incorrect because its not based on the original Linux Mint like the other editions are.

I think it should be called 'Norbert'.

My second choice is 'MintDeb', sounds better than 'DebMint'.

I personally think it should be called Leonardo Michelangelo Donatello Raphael :) . OK, so R isn't E, but it's only one letter away on a qwerty keyboard, so it's close enough.
