    Kubuntu doesn't have serious problems for me. I don't see a "lack of performance" and if it needs a bit more RAM than Ubuntu - oh, well, I don't care: I have 8 GB of it :)

    A rolling distro based on Debian will have its own problems: Possibly less stability, lack of proprietary drivers, ... It's probably possible to solve all these problems - but the question is: Will it still be as user-friendly as Ubuntu?

    It's an interesting attempt (and I will certainly try it in Virtualbox) but we'll have to see how its acceptance by the users will develop.

    Why should rolling releases see a lack of proprietary drivers?

    Anyway, I think that Mint is planning to get out of the shadow of Ubuntu. So Debian >> Ubuntu >> Mint will become Debian >> Mint. That's my simpleton simplistic view :D

    I said: ... based on Debian.That's at least what some Mint users said in their comments about this plan.
