Great link, Craig. I'm going to have to bookmark it and share it on my social nets.

This is the question I have asked repeatedly. It may be due to the development resources required, but I think Mint should step up and become a first tier distro, i.e., based directly off Debian.

+1 squeezy. I actually believe Mint would use far fewer resources and have a much better Debian release if it had:
Mint Debian Stable with newer kernel and some key software updated.
Mint Debian Sid for those wanting a cutting edge true rolling version.
There's already a few of those (each).

It seems to me that the Mint devs put all their apples into the "Ubuntu version." More resources and time etc.
