My point stands, though: Debian Testing has lots more updates than Debian Stable.
Use it with Debian Stable as well.

Trying it with LMDE is a waste of time. To many things come from the mint repo and are not, therefore, included.

I used to use it with LMDE but back then the Mint stuff wasn't updated much but the Ubuntu stuff (Import repository was small) was.

I'm not using/considering LMDE, i'm using Debian stable and considering going Debian Testing. About the limited bandwidth, i get 7gb a month; this month is crippled since i have already downloaded the iso to upgrade my Slackware partition to 64 bit. How well will i cope on Testing with 7gb a month. And might i add, it's not really 7gb, it's unlimited, but after 7gb it slows down to dialup speed, of about 9kb/s, sometimes on bad bandwidth, it goes less than a kb/s

7gb/month should be plenty for Testing (and then some).

Great, thanks for all the suggestions guys. I didn't even know Debian made testing install dvds until this thread.

If that is the case you may well want to explore this;

+1 and may I add the download via Jigdo option is excellent even though it can be difficult first time around.
