BSD and Darwin derivatives BSD (Berkely System Distribution) was a research operating system based on the original AT&T Unix, developed by the University of Berkeley, California. It has been Open Source right from the beginning, and after the university lost interest in developing it further, several community projects started up (the very first ones were NetBSD and FreeBSD in the early nineties) to continue developing BSD. Anyway, Linux was born roughly at the same time, but a pending lawsuit about copyright infringements prevented the BSD projects to become as successful as Linux (though you could argue about the exact reasons).

When it "just works" after installation like Linux Mint I will give it serious consideration. Here is hoping...

If you want something where you just click next, next, next to install and will auto detect hardware and install necessary drivers and media codecs, you can give Pc-BSD a try. It is as user friendly as Linux Mint.
