    woow.. I’m so exited – these two distros are my fav. My netbook has linux mint 9 installed on it and at work I’ve struggled a lot to replace win2003 with debian on our corporate servers. I’m glad that Mint decided to go back to the “origins”. IMHO even being based on Debian Ubuntu is still too heavy and plenty of unuseful features.
