"On the surface, trying to write a comparative review of Linux Mint 8 (Helena) and Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic koala) would seem like a pointless exercise. After all, Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu. So what's the point? Well, as in cases such as this, where one product is based on another, there begins to emerge - at some point - a product differentiation. In the case of Mint and Ubuntu, that differentiation has been apparent almost from the first year of Mint's existence.

"Even though it depends and it's based on Ubuntu, the Mint team has been steadily and aggressively adding features and developing custom (graphical) administrative tools. Tools and features that you won't find on any other distro derived from Ubuntu, and on Ubuntu itself."
