my quest for the greatest linux distro

Well, I can't tell that I found THE linux distro, but I tried Ubuntu and OpenSUSE and their performance can't match with Linux Mint (Xfce) on my three year old laptop. Linux Mint is Ubuntu-based, so we got the advantages of Ubuntu which's Debian-based and it is lightweight thanks to Xfce which is a desktop environment lighter than gnome (should I compare with Kde?). Furthermore, Linux Mint is user-friendly and I think that it is a good distro to start your linux adventure.
