Don't be too sad. LMDE2 still allows you to get last Mate/Cinnamon desktops updates. For me, this would be quite enough.

With my Debian Stretch, I'll stay stuck to Mate 1.16. I'm a little bit jealous, guys... ;)

Seriously, I admit that it's a quite long time to wait between Stretch release and LMDE3, but people using LMDE often has stability purpose than last applications releases.

Eventually, you may need a newer kernel in case of recent harware but you could pick it into the backports. To my mind, there shall not be frustration to stay with LMDE2 a few months more.

Not criticism but how long does Debian stable take to test for bugs ? :D Not sure what all packages in Lmde are kept/installed in dedicated Mint/lmde repo's though, shrugs. Ah either way am sure it'll be Debian'ey/Minty goodness when it does get here. Not even going to throw suggestions for alternative upgrade options into this. Some good one's already. People using their head(s) for more than growing of hair. :D

Also +1 everything Xenopeek said, don't even have to read all of what he's posted to be confident was all good info in em. Dudez got skillz ! :) Ok I'm getting weird been awake too long and gotta leave for looking for employment related stuff in 20mins, arghhhh ! Hope these potential employers are fond of zombies, who drool on themselves and fall asleep during the interview process ! Wish me luck and send some good vibes my way fellow nixers.

Sometimes they ask you what you know about the company, so make sure you know the history (at least most of it) of the company.

^ Appreciated :) ... think it went well, very little drool was involved. :D One down, one or two more to go fellas. Only tried Lmde2 for a 2-3 weeks but unsurprisingly was a really good and polished example of the Mint.

Well, yes there will only be a LMDE 3 Cinnamon ISO file but you can of course install MATE or any other desktop environments later if you want to.

LMDE 2 has a newer release of MATE than will be in LMDE 3. That's because Linux Mint maintained the latest release of MATE for LMDE 2. On LMDE 3 it would instead come from the Debian stable repository and that focuses on stability and security (you only get security updates for MATE, no new releases). You could potentially use the Debian testing repository to get a newer version of MATE but I can understand this being a disappointment if you were using MATE on LMDE 2.

We are still waiting for bug patches for LMDE2. We are months behind.

Missing features since the May 1.18 "update" have been patched by Mate months ago. Drag/drop to panel is most important for me, but updated LMDE2 still is broken. Fresh install and it works. This was reported long ago but apparently ignored by Mint/Ubuntu.
We would like to resume using LMDE but it no longer fits our work flow.

I ended up with Debian Stretch Mate, it is pretty slick.

I just tried Debian 9.2 and it's humongous , Hope Clem can trim it down and optimise it for LMDE 3.

How did you install (iso name, what desktop, etc)?
Debian installs, for me, have always been reasonably small - more so than Mint.

Sorry to be vague , I meant as in pre-installed apps on the Menu as i don't use 60% of the stuff in Mint.

Net install , stable release , Cinnamon

I'm in two minds if to have a play with Unstable via the advanced options or just wait for LMDE 3 :P
