"I have a fairly wary relationship with Debian GNU/Linux, so I
had to wonder how things would go with the new Linux Mint Debian
"My wariness stems from my early days of using Linux and trying
to install Debian a few times and — thanks to my
inexperience, failing spectacularly. Chastened, I would ultimately
reach over and grab a MandrakeLinux or Red Hat disk instead.

enough to keep me from trying it out again, as new distros like
Fedora, openSUSE, and Ubuntu came along.

bit of shame, as I am running Linux Mint Debian Edition. And, I
must say, liking it."
