Hey, in the next month or so, I am getting a new CPU/Motherboard. And I read that you would want to do a fresh install when you switch major hardware.
I do have everything set, all I need to do is copy down how to do some stuff, and I'm sure I can reproduce it.
And I saw on DistroWatch, Ubuntu actually went down to 3rd place, taken over by Mageia. So I guess Mint is kind of popular, eh? I have it on my laptop, pretty enjoyable.
Anyway, I just want to make sure, Mint uses all of Ubuntu's repositories, it just has its own software center, right? And uses the same commands, being based off Ubuntu, sudo apt-get and all that goodness?

The thing I love about Ubuntu is that it's the best base out there. You can then take that base and make what you will of it. Nothing wrong with Mint, it is Ubuntu, but it's has a bunch of stuff installed that newcomers love but anyone that wants to control their install might not.

Ubuntu provides excellent out-of-the-box hardware support and easy installation by focusing almost exclusively on seamless component integration.
