LMDE4 Cinnamon

Even on an old slow laptop LMDE4 runs rather well.

LMDE4 Cinnamon

I went into this install with low expectations. The laptop I put this on is very old and slow so my inital thoughts were that it would be too slow to be useful. To my surprise it actually quite useable. Everything worked right from the start and the default layout is very nice. LMDE takes the rock solid Debian base and adds in all the bits to make the devices work well but as always I am concerned about using it long term. I bought in on the original LMDE only to end up borking my system as LMDE changed its course multiple times. I do like the idea though of taking Debian and cleaning up all the rough edges so I’ll continue to keep an eye on LMDE.
