Linux Mint Debian Edition 4 Beta Is Now Available for Download

The new features in Linux Mint Debian Edition 4 can be spotted right from the boot as this release includes a new boot option that lets users start the live system with out-of-the-box support for Nvidia graphics cards. Yes, that’s right, the proprietary Nvidia graphics drivers are now preloaded in the ISO image. Previous LMDE versions used the the open-source Nouveau driver for Nvidia GPUs, but it didn’t work well with certain chipsets so users ended up without a graphical display. Users will also be able to boot LMDE 4 in compatibility mode, which should work with most graphics chipsets.
