Oh, definately.

There's no denying that all Linux Mint is, is Ubuntu with some extra
codecs (well, and a few custom applications to make updating a bit
more newbie friendly etc) but that's part of the appeal for me :-)

I can give my friends a version of Ubuntu that "just works" and is
very new user friendly.
