The Linux Mint team has announced the release of its Debian based edition of the popular GNU/Linux based operating system. LMDE comes in two flavors – Cinnamon and MATE. This edition brings MATE 1.4 and Cinnamon 1.6.
The version also brings installer improvements (graphical timezone and keyboard selection, support for installation on multiple HDD, slideshow, webcam and face picture support). It also brings improved Device Driver Manager and Plymouth splash screen among many other.
Those who don’t know, Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a semi-rolling distribution based on Debian Testing. It’s available in both 32 and 64-bit as a live DVD with MATE or Cinnamon. The purpose of LMDE is to look identical to the main edition and to provide the same functionality while using Debian as a base.
You can download the LMDE from the download page.
