Linux Mint Debian 4, or LMDE4, is now available. Does it really matter whether you run this latest Linux Mint release, based on Debian Linux, instead of Linux Mint 19.3, based on Ubuntu Linux? The answer depends on two things. One is your personal computing philosophy regarding refresh cycles and leading-edge technologies. The other is what you want in terms of a computing experience -- such as new features, reliability, performance and style. Also consider a related question: How does LMDE4 compare to running pure Debian Linux?


One major disadvantage over standard Mint

As much as I like the idea behind LMDE and how stable it already seems, I guess LMDE has (at least) one major disadvantage over standard Mint the incompatibility with most Ubuntu PPAs, so there's fewer software available that would install in a way that it might get updates along with system updates.

I am coming from using Debian 10.3 in production, and Void Linux in development. So far, I am impressed with LMDE4.
