Of course it's a question of taste. But change the distro because you don't 
want to spend time customizing the desktop..... ;)

I can't imagine that going to "Appearance", selecting something 
like "Ambiance" and changing the background would take more time than 
installing Mint (which surely is a fine distribution).

By the way, _if_ you spend time to explore gconf-editor, you will be surprised 
to find out what Gnome can do (but the Gnome people don'twant noobs to know 
about, it seems). For example, I found out that you can just kill your 
touchpad there, great! (I happen to hate touchpads, but there again it's all 
a question of taste).
