Linux Mint 2 LMDE Screenshot Tour

LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition) is a very exciting distribution, targeted at experienced users, which provides the same environment as Linux Mint but uses Debian as its package base, instead of Ubuntu. LMDE is less mainstream than Linux Mint, it has a much smaller user base, it is not compatible with PPAs, and it lacks a few features. That makes it a bit harder to use and harder to find help for, so it is not recommended for novice users. LMDE is however slightly faster than Linux Mint and it runs newer packages. Life on the LMDE side can be exciting. There are no point releases in LMDE 2, except for bug fixes and security fixes base packages stay the same, but Mint and desktop components are updated continuously.

This same technology is also the cause of Linus Torvalds' infamous "finger" gesture directed at NVIDIA themselves. So it's no secret that NVIDIA Optimus technology has a somewhat controversial relationship with the Linux platform. So how is the state of affairs currently?
