That old man yelling at clouds was impressed by a humble little GNU/Linux OS? And then one Orca likes as well???
But it’s true, as far as Debian distros go in the mom n pop field of everyday users, Sparky Linux is just great. A super stable work horse, with less shit to worry about than with your old LMDE. For Karmi and me it’s the better alternative! It’s not often that Karmi and Orcs are pulling at the same string, so in order to celebrate the random occasion you should try it, too!
No, for realsies now: Get away from the increasingly disappointing Ubuntu base, fool! Once Clem and his boys have decided to sever all ties with Canonical/Ubuntu you may go back to Mint. But for now SparkyLinux or MX Linux is where the music plays.
PS: And it even comes with your fave yummy desktop taste. 😉
