home distros software | mint debian Deb/MintDeb/Solydx/TangluCompared

Version of Mint based on Debian testing (NOTE: Aug 2014: Changing to Debian Stable), offers MATE/Cinnamon. "Semi" rolling release based on a tested testing so not so many breaks as when using the naked 'testing' repos; updates provided as 'update packs'. NOT compatible with the Ubuntu repos or PPAs. Uses a 'Device driver manager'. No support for UEFI or secure boot tech. Excellent GUI installer. MintInstall or Synaptic pkg mgrs, separate updater.

Ver 201303: Crashy? File manager generates numberless windows?

o Reviewer )Ver 201403): partitioning must be done manually; works well after partitioning.
