I briefly used LMDE4, was happy with it, but changed later to the "mother Debian" aka Buster. All hardware worked OK though, but wanted KDE as my DE, which is not supported by mint.
Now running Bullseye/SID and could not be happier...
I have LMDE4/XFCE running on one of my box's I am testing out with a view to replacing M20 cinnamon.
On a lower spec machine it is running faster than my M20 box, no problem with stability or usability
The meta-package for xfce4 is in/was in the repositories when i did my installation, so i just installed it,
Cinamon is a lovely desktop, but now its getting no better than M$ in the way it has become slower and bloated
