Linux Mint is derived from Ubuntu, so I don't know how you can pan Ubuntu but praise Mint.  No distro can be good at everything, but there's no denying the impact of Ubuntu.  It has moved the Overton Window in the Windows-vs.-Linux shift.  It's great that using Linux isn't as radical today as was the case 5-10 years ago.  If you don't like Ubuntu, be assured that the average Ubuntu user is much more likely to use your favorite distro than the average Windows user, as the switch from Ubuntu to another distro is MUCH less radical than the switch from Windows to Linux.
