Pros: It's Debian, it's Mint, never requires a new OS installation, very customizable, very lightweight, noob-friendly
Cons: Had an xfwm glitch once and had to type xfwm4 in a terminal to fix it.

Excellent. This is easily my new favorite distro.

(This rating is for LMDE Xfce, not LMDE Gnome. Gnome 3 drove me crazy so I'm now anti-gnome.)
