近日， Linux Mint 发布了一个新的基于 Debian 制作的发行版，简称 LMDE ，据称与 Debian 100% 兼容。目前发行的版本为 32 位版本，不久之后会提供 64位版本。Linux Mint Debian 采用 Gnome 桌面系统。
官方 ："Today is very important for Linux Mint. It's one day to remember in the history of our project as we're about to maintain a new distribution, a rolling one, which promises to be faster, more responsive and with which we're less reliable on upstream components. Linux Mint Debian edition (LMDE) comes with a Debian base, which we transformed into a live media and on top of which we added a new installer. It's rougher and in some aspects not as user-friendly as our other editions, it's very young but it will improve continuously and rapidly."
