I have been using Arch linux for some time now, but I mess a Debian based distro.. I really loved Ubuntu and used that, but it has very bloated for my taste.. I like using MATE because I like the older "feel". After doing some research, it seems Linux Mint has a great bit of users and has a distro with Mate.. Anyone use this? If so, what can you tell me about it?

Try it out! Only you can make the decision of whether you like it or not. If I were you, I'd try it out on virtualbox before you wipeing your machine. If any problems arise, just quote my post here and I'll get back to you.
Also, if you feel up to it, try out the Ubuntu 13.04 daily build. It is very snappy and very polished. My only gripe with it was not being able to get Steam up and running. It would install, update, and never finish updating. Everything else I tried out was a blast. I'm sure this problem will be fixed in the future.

Plus, the installer on 13.04 has a tendency to fail.

Fancy desktop effects no longer appeal to me.
