Comparison of Mint releases

I'm not sure how well it could work for radio, and I'm not sure if it would work as a show on its own, but how about a comparison between Linux Mint (and it's Ubuntu base) and Linux Mint Debian Edition with it's pure Debian base. There are actually very important differences between Ubuntu's packages and Debian's, and those of us who use LMDE are always advising users not to install Ubuntu packages and PPAs on LMDE because of the very real possibility of hosing your system.

I know doing a comparison between Unity, Cinnamon and MATE* wouldn't work on an audio podcast but I'm thinking talking about why the two kinds of supposed "Debian" packages in fact aren't compatible.

*-MATE is actually pronounced maté, like the Spanish beverage, not like a first mate.
