Sorry. It's just that everything that glitters...
Can I upgrade my mint to lmde?
I doubt. At least, not easily. However, installing LMDE should be a one-time process (it's a rolling distribution).
Alternatives are: Arch Linux, Debian Testing and a couple of others. Anyway, most of the release-based distribution (Mint is a special case) support upgrading, even if not rolling distributions (for example, Ubuntu).
I have not much experience with Mint (none, in fact), but even in the case of a full and disruptive upgrade they should preserve your settings and documents. However, I disclaim responsibility as I don't know how it works.
