Linux Mint Debian Edition

I currently have two computers, both elderly: a Pentium 4 desktop and a Pentium M laptop, both with 1GB RAM. At the moment I'm using Linux Mint 10 (Gnome) on the desktop and Linux Mint LXDE 11 on the laptop.

Linux Mint 10 is coming up to the end of it's support, so I need to do something on this computer... Ideally I want to have something with longer term support, so I don't have to faff around setting everything up again until I get around to getting a new computer with decent specs

Quite like Linux Mint, but the next long term support version doesn't come out until next month on Ubuntu, then it has to get sorted for Mint, then my computer probably won't manage MATE/Cinnamon very well, so I'll need to change the desktop environment for something lighter...

So I decided to go for Linux Mint Debian Edition, which is a rolling distribution so won't run out, and to use xfce rather than Gnome 3 (put off by the reviews and likely weight...).
