Welcome to the Linux Mint Forums!
Sounds like you are browsing at this point, haven't tried any of the OSes yet? What OS are you coming from? Obviously, I am biased, since I am here, but I feel Mint take on Linux is awesome! I tried several distros along the way, and Mint was the only one that just worked for me, even with a online game viewer I use, which is finicky (couldn't get it to work with any other distro). Plus, I like the community here, seems a bit less hardcore than some other Linux places.
If you have any questions about any of the various flavors of Mint (MATE, Cinnamon, KDE, Xfce, or otherwise), I think it is safe to just ask. I am new here too, so can't say definitively, as most forums want you to look for previous answers first so people aren't answering the same questions over and over. However, I know I spent a lot of time researching the old threads, but it can be really hard to get simple, clear answers that way, and some of the info may be outdated, as things change a bit with each new release.
Great to have you here! I hope you continue to explore the Linux Mint world!
