Let's compare the latest versions of the two. What are the differences? Real differences, not mint is green. Things related to 64 bit, flash, codecs and other technical distinctions.

Ubuntu 10.10 vs Linux Mint 10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 23, 2010
I've been looking at reviews for Linux Mint. So far, it sounds pretty good. The one thing I see come up more often is the better driver support is seem to offer over Ubuntu. I've used Linux Mint 9 quite a bit, but only played around with Mint 10 rc for a few days in VB. While I was impressed, it has never really tempted me to switch from Ubuntu. Though I like Mint, I feel far more at home using Ubuntu, so would never give up Ubuntu for it.
What does the community think about the comparison between the two in terms of stability, support, and others?
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS versus LMDE (Linux Mint Debian) 201204?

http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1979 I'm really having to ponder this one? Mate 1.2, when idle, really does use half as much RAM as Unity. That was a surprise, especially since I'm comparing 64-bit vs. 64-bit. I have yet to notice any of the rough edges and quirks that are typical of a Mint release.
Linux Ubuntu vs Linux Mint OSs

Pretty much self explanatory, so yea.
Please dont say things like ubuntu looks ugly as it is customizable, or that ubuntu generally uses gnome becuase it can use kde too and that goes for mint as well.
what im looking for is actual performance tests and level of customization.
What are the pros and cons for mint over ubuntu?
personal experiences are welcome but only if they are specific.
btw, this is clearly comparing the latest stable editions.
Browser Performances Ubuntu 12.10 vs Windows 7
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2013
I've just completed a dual boot installation of Ubuntu 12.10 on my Windows 7 machine. Its an old machine and its currently spec'd as follows:
AMD Phenom X4 965
12GB DD3 RAM
1.5 tb hd 7200 rpm
Radeon HD4870 graphics card (Gallium RV770 driver)
I've ran tests using Microsofts testdrive site:
I've used this bubbles one plus a couple of other ones that shows FPS.
I've ran tests using the following browsers:
Opera 12.x (with hardware acceleration set to 1)
When on Windows 7 (SP1), I get about 40 - 60 FPS for each of the browsers.
However on Ubuntu 12, its totally different. I get something like:
Firefox = 3 - 6 FPS
Opera = 10 - 15 FPS
Chrome = 30 - 35 FPS
Anyone know why these browsers are significantly slower on Ubuntu?
Ubuntu Vs. Windows

Apologies if this has already been posted ad nauseum (and I am sure that it has been.)
I have five computers in my household, one laptop, three ASUS netbooks, and one bleeding-edge CAD system to rule them all.
Five or six months ago, I switched my laptop over to Ubuntu- in a word, a convert was made. Now, three of the five systems in my hone are Ubuntu only.
They run great, when Ubuntu is the only OS- but there's a catch (there's always a catch, isn't there?) The CAD system has to run Win7 to support Solidworks (I got CATIA to run on Ubuntu, but Solidworks is the white whale here, as it is what my employer uses.)
So, the CAD system runs Windows 99.5% of the time. Here's the rub- because I didn't boot that system into Ubuntu for a couple of weeks, the install is now apparently broken- the loading screen hangs for ever, and it just won't boot. I have not had that problem with the native, dedicated installs.
I've not only installed Ubuntu on systems I own- with

Ubuntu's drive accesss speeds are faster but Windows 8 boot time is. Is this because of Ubuntu EXT drive format?
Ubuntu V Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 20, 2013
I have been using Ubuntu for about 2 years now and it has become my preferred operating system running on one server (music and films 6Tb) and two laptops.
I still use Windows on my media centre computer that drives my home theatre as I like WMC and My Movies also I rip DVD using Any DVD which will only run on Windows.
What I cannot understand is with Windows operating systems you have to de-frag the hard drive to keep it running smoothly but Linux all you need to do is delete the old Kernels after upgrades; so Linux is much easer to maintain can anyone explain to my why you donít need to de-frag Linux?
