Linux Mint 19.2 “MATE Edition” and Debian 10 “Buster”

Debian 10 "Buster"

The legendary Debian is an independent, community-based distro with an impressive worldwide network of volunteers. Careful testing and an extra-long development cycle give Debian a reputation for stability. Debian, which contains no proprietary components, serves as the basis for several popular Linux systems, including Ubuntu, Knoppix, and more. The latest release comes with both Wayland and Xorg display servers. AppArmor and the nftables firewall are included by default, along with simplified UEFI support and updates to thousands of packages in the vast Debian repositories.


Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" MATE Edition

Linux Mint is a user-friendly desktop Linux based on Ubuntu. This month's DVD comes with the MATE edition, featuring the Gnome 2-based MATE desktop. The last version includes improvements to the update manager and several configuration tools. A rebuilt System Reports tool offers more convenient access to troubleshooting information.
