Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 “Cindy” Cinnamon Is Out, Here’s How to Upgrade Now

Continuing the dream of offering users an alternative to the standard, Ubuntu-based Linux Mint editions, Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) 3 “Cindy” Cinnamon Edition is now available to download and ships with the latest Cinnamon 3.8 desktop environment and it uses the repositories of the latest stable Debian GNU/Linux operating system. Besides the usual bug fixes and security updates imported from Debian, the base packages stay the same in Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE) 3 “Cindy” Cinnamon Edition, which follows a rolling release model where users install once and receive updates forever. As such, all of its desktop components are updated continuously.
