I managed to install Mint 14 with only one small hiccup, which was easily rectified. My primary reason in wanting to install it was to test the efficacy of some new blood pressure medicine that my doctor prescribed. You see, I had a nightmare of an experience a couple of months ago attempting to install Ubuntu 12.04. It was an unmitigated disaster. And it spiked my BP to dangerous levels. But this was a breeze. The whole thing took thirty minutes, and it fits like a glove, compared to the few hundred hours trying to install 12.04.
