    Do you think people should use Debian or Ubuntu? Tell me which one and why.

    It depends on what you want to do with your Distro. Debian will require a bit more up front attention. But once that's all sorted out is stable as a rock and will serve you well for years. If you want something out of the box that just works go With Mint. /Ubuntu. If you want a system that...

It will work on all Ubuntu and derivative distros, including Mint. Was...

    How to upgrade to Mint 21

    Clem has released the upgrade instructions for those wishing to upgrade their version of Mint to version 21. If your running Version 20.3 go Here. If an older version of Mint go here: My personal preference is to do a complete fresh install of a new major version. But to each their own.
