Funny, I don't see a single question in there or in the title (here's mine: since when is "Best OS" a question?). You're clearly so enraptured by Mint that you're not going to try any other distros anyway, so that's a moot point. And throughout the discussion, you can only contribute "yes but I didn't like it" answers, which don't help anybody.
Ok, after a long debate much earlier in the forum i thought i would share my final thought, after trying to find the perfect linux distro, i have finally come to a desision.
Linux mint for me is outright the best, in my opinion of course.
It has the nice simplicity of a windows desktop with the "trying to be a windows replacement distro"
So it still has the beautiful polished feel of a wonderful GNOME distro.
I think its fab! so anyone wondering what distro to choose, leave the "buntu's" and get on mint!
