Linux Mint’s lesser known sister distro is the Debian Edition, running on Debian Testing (currently 7.0 Wheezy) rather than the latest Ubuntu. As it’s based on testing, it’s a rolling release, and people who have the distro already installed will not need to update from this image. However, it does have all the important updates to the distro, so people reinstalling can start from a later point in the cycle.
LMDE is supposed to look exactly the same as the standard Linux Mint -and it does if you ignore the wallpaper image. You can get 32 and 64-bit images with either Cinnamon or MATE, and the system is 100% compatible with Debian sources.
