Out of the box, Ubuntu and Linux Mint look very different. From colors and icons to the placement of launchers themselves, each distro offers a completely unique experience when compared to one another.

But perhaps the biggest difference between the two distributions is each one's overall direction. Ubuntu is attempting to become a jack of all trades, offering Ubuntu experiences for the desktop, Ubuntu TV and smartphones. Linux Mint on the other hand, is quite content in keeping its original mission of providing a great desktop experience.

For example, Mint offers a typical desktop experience when it comes to browsing your menu, locating installed software and browsing files. Ubuntu however, has sweetened the experience a bit by allowing the Unity desktop to provide a dock for frequently used application, in addition to being able to locate and launch software using the Unity Dash. The idea, of course, is that the Ubuntu approach is easier to navigate. Personally, I tend to disagree, but others seem to enjoy Ubuntu's approach.

Ubuntu is more rich featured, Mint is lighter and I recommend it to every Windows users who's willing to try a Linux Distro for the first time.

Mint, PearOS and Elementary OS are the best in my opinion.

You can't Judge on something if you didn't try it.I have these operating systems now installed on my hp notebook.
  1. Windows 8.1 Pro
  2. Windows 7 Ultimate
  3. Zorin OS 7
  4. Ubuntu 13.10
What I found that Zorin OS 7 is rubbish, It based on Ubuntu with Compiz features.Formatted it's partition using EaseUS and restored Linux Mint 16 to USB and after pressing "Post Reply" Button I'm gonna to install it.;):D:)
