Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) is a community-driven Linux distribution based on Debian that strives to be a modern, elegant and comfortable operating system which is both powerful and easy to use.
Compared to the traditionnal version of Linux Mint, LMDE's goal is to ensure Linux Mint can continue to deliver the same user experience if Ubuntu was to disappear.
LMDE is the development target for new software developped by the Linux Mint team. It garantees that these new software are compatible outside of Ubuntu.
New Feature: Hybrid Torrents
Hybrid torrents support the BitTorrent V1 and V2 protocol. Its support is not well spread out yet so we recommend that you still use v1 (aka the "torrent" column).
