After many years of using and generally being happy with Ubuntu I’ve become a little tired and bored with Ubuntu.
I’ve used pretty much every version of Ubuntu since about 8.something, although when they switched to unity I did end up moving to Xubuntu and Ubuntu Gnome so I’m pretty comfortable mucking about with Linux and dealing with the command line and the like.
Anyway I’ve recently been considering moving away from Ubuntu. I like apt-get so I’m thinking I might switch to Debian. I know there are certain differences between Debian and Ubuntu, but what I’m would like to know is has anyone else undertaken anything similar?
I’m looking at moving to Linux Mint Debian Edition because I like the work they’re doing with the cinnamon desktop but what I would like to know is what are the potential pitfalls of moving to Debian? Has anyone done anything similar? And aside from LMDE and Debian itself what other distros would people suggest I take a look at?
