I can't comment much about Mint but I have tried 11.  This past
weekend in fact :-)  It was very brief but very satisfying.  I had a
broken Windows machine (It had choked because it was too full... well,
it is on a 20gb drive).  Anyway, I just gave Mint 11 a quick twirl to
clean some space on this small drive and it performed lovely.  No
messing, no hit or miss which I have had with Ubuntu in the past and I
should add I don't like Ubuntu now with the new and for me broken
Unity desktop (it will not work on my PC and I can't seem to fix it).
It also found my Windows machines on the home network with a lot less
hassle than other Windows PC's have done.  That includes Win 7 and XP.
 I may install it on the PC that had the problem.
