Why does my Mint 7 say its Debian 5.0?

Postby jaqian » Mon Sep 21, 2009 6:11 am

I installed a screenlet last night on my desktop. It gives me all the computer specs and says I'm running Debian 5.0. Why does it say that, if anything it should say Ubuntu.

Cheers,
Rob

LinuxMint-7 is based on Ubuntu 9.04, which is based on Debian 5.0 (stable release).

There is a new upcoming version of LinuxMint that will be based off Debian Squeeze (rolling release) . . . hence, LinuxMint Debian Edition
