Thank you Derek for mentioning my comment.
I wonder if the good folk at Linux Mint could focus solely on LMDE (Debian Edition) and backport the Cinnamon DE so it's more up to date. 💡
My take on Linux Mint is that it's a better & more secure version of Ubuntu, unlike Ubuntu it has no telemetry, it uses Flatpaks instead of Snaps & it is the only distro I know of that allows you to encrypt the home folder on setup. Also cinnamon is the best GUI I've ever used.
