    Yep -t is the trick, I like this distro but it’s really out of date like everything is massively out of date, from a securety standpoint I think thats really bad it comes with firefox 17 when 22 is out, this distro isnt more stable either i found becuse simple bug fixes arent applied KDE 4.9 I think 4.11 is out now = big fixes man, lots of old kde bugs Ive been running into that are fixed in newer versions, see I typed this fast but look no in browser spellcheing lol I’ll give it some more time I may go with mint full time, I jest cant stand the old bugs in strate debian

  4. @Blister security updates are backported into the older versions you mention, so the system remains as secure as the latest versions. See:

    Just quick mention. To improve its looks, you need to install `libreoffice-gnome|kde` as well like

    apt-get -t wheezy-backports install libreoffice-gnome


    apt-get -t wheezy-backports install libreoffice-kde
