Agree with you Nightstrike2009. I can't be bothered with Ubuntu neither. I tried 12.04 but damn..... that Unity is so ugly!!! Can't get used to it. Not my cup of tea
Debian....tried that too....always had issues with really ugly font rendering! Couldn't fix it and don't want to spend no more time on that issue. And i don't think Debian will ever fix this. I used to work with Ubuntu from 7.04 up till 10.04LTS but never had any issues whatsoever! Debian can't compete with Ubuntu's font rendering.
Xubuntu is a good distro to try. But i don't like that menubar at the bottom... Could be fixed.
Fedora...Gnome 3....gives me a bad taste in my mouth, an Unity taste...
KDE based distro?? Maybe. Not sure which one to try. OpenSuse?
I think if the development continues regarding Gnome3 and Unity, i might even go back to (yuck
No, don't know what to do without MInt. Although Mint has its drawbacks, as example the (in my humble opinion) crippled/stripped Caja and/or Nautilus. Many features for Nautilus which i used under Ubuntu doesn't work or isn't available under MInt. Bloody shame....
