Mint also has a Debian edition that doesn't need reinstalling and will continue to receive support as long as Debian does (so, forever).

This is the right answer.

This is the solid choice, but would you recommend it for a new user, really? I think Ubuntu-based, even though Ubuntu itself is Debian-based, is a little easier for the average person when it comes to troubleshooting and getting things working out of the box. More stuff by default, which is good and bad, ease of use, etc. To be fair, I haven't messed with Mint's Debian Edition, so a lot of that friendliness found in the Ubuntu family may very well be present.
