Linux "Ubuntu, once the darling of desktop Linux and the overwhelmingly popular choice for newcomers, may soon lose that role to Mint." I switched to Mint KDE, and have no intention of going back. By the way, KDE4 is finally good (don't hit me, Aaron) - fast, fluid, stable, pretty, and thanks to its versatility, a joy to use after a few hours of tweaking. Just... Please, unify Plasma and the regular widget style. This is insanity.

Linux Mint KDE Rocks

I have been using Linux Mint KDE since version 12 and been using Linux 13 KDE since it was released and I have to say I love it. I also installed Linux Mint Cinnamon edition on my old laptop and it is great. I think the Linux Mint is amazing. Having said that, I believe the great thing about Linux is that everyone can pick their desktop according to their needs and liking. Also I look at Linux Mint as ecosystem of Debian / Ubuntu. Ubuntu has done a lot of positive things for desktop Linux and Mint couldn't achieve the same greatness if it did everything from scratch.

[comment regarding Debian]
I used to run Debian on my desktop PC but I think Debian 6 came at the time that KDE wasn't super stable (4.4 I believe) and Gnome was moving to version 3.0 so I think the next version of Debian will be great.
