Agreed with everything Pete S said. I like Unity too, but many people
just cannot let go of that taskbar-and-start-menu thing. If you're
like that, well, Lubuntu offers it, Xubuntu /can/ do it but needs
tweaking, but Mint Cinnamon does it out of the box.

My one small cavil with Pete S's post is that GNOME 2 lives on, and if
you want it, Mint's Maté edition provides it. No other Ubuntu remix
offers either of these desktops "out of the box".
