Linux Mint: the New Ubuntu?

Sure, I dropped Unity about 10 seconds after my first login (Unity is really just terrible, I truly don't understand how anyone ever thought it was a good idea.) Mainly, I use win7 as my main workstation (read: gaming) and my linux box for a web/media server and irc client (i really like byobu) as well as an alternate workstation when windows is rebooting/updating or whatever and I don't want to interrupt or interfere with its current activity - which is not often.
