Mint is really good and almost entirely free of the rough edges that other Linux desktops seem to have where you suddenly hit the limit of the ui and go from clicky simplicity to editing configuration files that have warnings at the top that advise against actions you don't understand and suggest you copy it to a directory that doesn't actually exist on your system. And the only advice you can find is from 1994 and tells you to install a version of Java that never officially existed.
That kind of thing doesn't seem to happen on Mint very often and there's a very helpful community who don't make fun of people for not understanding things only geeks care about. It's been less trouble than Windows was, anyway.
