I recently found Mint and tried it on my Thinkpad X60s notebook. Simply put, it's the best out of box Linux experience I have had to date. Everything worked out of the box, even the WWAN card worked and loaded up. I don't use WWAN but it was cool to see.
I have since loaded it on my file server, Thinkpad T60 and my desktop computer. My T60 is running great, I got the center button working for my trackpoint and my touchpad surprisingly supports multitouch
My server was having a lot of problems so I had decommissioned it. Every once in a while, it would just lock up and I couldn't access anything. With Mint, it hasn't had that problem. The uptime is 3 days now, I couldn't get over 15 hours before.
Expect questions on my part, I'm still learning Linux and the commands plus the differences from the Windows world. So far I have been able to get Remote desktop working and a few other minor things.
