First time using LMDE

Post by JeffF73 »

I have been a long time user of LM since the start of it's development and this is the first time I ever decided to get away from anything remotely related to Ubuntu. I tried Debian Vanilla and Debian Cinnamon. Yet I decided to give LMDE a try and this is where I am staying. Nothing compares to LM in my opinion. It just works. I am loving it. I thought it would be a huge step away from Cinnamon and etc. Yet there isn't much difference other than a few thing's I will have to get used to again. Very happy with my new move. I am sure I will be in here with some questions every now and again.

That's hardly surprising. LM20 Cinnamon was backported from LMDE.

LMDE is very good, and it's very stable. I use it to run my network.

Yes - I can fully confirm the positive impression of LMDE 4.

It is - by far - the best Linux and the best Mint in my VirtualBox collection. Number two is Debian KDE Buster.

I was long in doubt whether to install LMDE 4 or Mint Cinnamon 20 on the external SSD. Since Ubuntu has the slightly newer graphics programs (with good Hi-DPI support), that ultimately tipped the scales.

But maybe I'll just have to buy another Huawei, it's pretty cheap with a discount, just around the corner ...
