Linux Mint is a community-driven Linux distribution based on Ubuntu that strives to be a 'modern, elegant and comfortable operating system which is both powerful and easy to use'.

Linux Mint provides full out-of-the-box multimedia support by including some proprietary software, such as multimedia codecs, and comes bundled with a variety of free and open-source applications.

There is also a version based on Debian called LMDE (Linux Mint Debian Edition).
