They are NOT Debian's distros.

Debian TYPE distros?

Debian GNU/Linux
https://www.debian.org/
Debian is one of the largest GNU/Linux distributions. It is used by many as a base for their own spins and custom distributions. Debian is one of the oldest distributions, thus it has a very good reputation. Debian is hailed as one of the most stable distributions ever, and each Debian Stable release (the official one) is suported for up to 5 years (3 regular and 2 LTS). As a bonus, every major DE and WM is avaiable on Debian.
The current Stable release is Debian 9.2, codenamed Stretch.

Little parody goes a long way.

Wheelerof4te has listed all the good Debian distros. ;)

Please change the title to Debian-derived or Debian-based distros.

I'll add my favourite to that list -

It's a specialist "live" system rather than something you install but no less awesome for it.

Surprised nobody has mentioned Kali linux yet. If used as intended, Kali is a very useful distro

https://www.kali.org/

Even better, in my opinion, are any of the Debian-based distros cooked by the folks over at LinuxBBQ

Maybe because of this. For anything else than the intended purpose, it's rather unstable and pain in the ass to maintain. It however shines where it's meant to shine, so maybe bringing it up isn't that odd with appropriate disclaimers like yours.

Yeah, did you actually bother to check that list before posting it?

The top five suggestions are _not_ based on Debian... :roll:

They are based on Ubuntu, yes. Which is based on Debian.
If we go by that, we will be listing distros here until the end of time. That's why I posted a little parody, since OP's thread is meaningless. Anyone can find the list of Debian-based distros, if they choose to.

I am presuming that the OP intended for a list of distributions that have the Debian repositories listed in /etc/apt/sources.list — this is not true of either Ubuntu or Mint (excepting that LMDE aberration) and so they have no place in this thread (IMO).
