    Can i keep my home directory?

    I wanna change distro to debian mint. I was wondering if it was possible to keep my home-file-partition. Right now i just install the version of ubuntu i want and mount the /home partition. Can i do this in Debian mint?

    You should be able to, but I suppose that depends upon the Mint installation program.

    my bet is you can use the home partition no problem, but i'd wipe most dotfiles with configuration to get a clean profile. Old configs may be in conflict with new system because of different software versions.
