May be I am not reading it correctly, but, there is nothing in the above
two articles to suggest that they are 'deviating from Ubuntu and going
to be based directly off debian'.

They only seem to be bringing out yet another edition of their Mint
system which will be based on debian.

There are always differences among people on the sense of aesthetics and
usability and Linux Mint project is trying well to accomodate all by
bringing out so many different editions.
