I am new to linux and confused with mint LXDE and mint LMDE

What is the difference between linux mint LXDE and mint LMDE ?

LXDE is a Desktop Environment. I'm presuming that Mint LXDE is a flavor of Mint bundled with LXDE - many distributions (such as Kubuntu) have alternate versions based upon different DE's.

LMDE is Linux Mint Debian Edition - it's a version of Linux Mint based upon Debian Testing, designed in part for compatibility.

As for which is better - well, frankly, that's a question that SuperUser denizens prefer not be asked, because there is not concrete answer.
