    The better one is the one that best suits your needs and sensibilities.

    i prefer the ubuntu update manager, you can add the mint repo if you want to anyway if you want one of there packages for example the mint-meta-codecs
    i like xubuntu, i do recommend mint for someone coming from windows, since the panel layout is similar by default, if i do it for them i use xubuntu

    That's how I see it. Mint is nice btw..I most likely will put it on the white box.

    Mint is nice if you like the Windows 95 design paradigm.

    Ubuntu is better if you like a more modern design.

    Under the hood they're very similar.
