Default Linux Mint

I am currently installing it on my other hdd and am wondering if anyone on here is using it, and if so how do you like it?

Edit: I blame vista for messing up the installation. It says this program has stopped working right before it finishes. So i will figure this out tomorrow.

I was kidding about the vista part, but in your opinion what is the best linux os out there. Just in general. I want to go for one besides mint to partition my hdd with.

Well id have to say go with ubuntu. But if your feeling adventurous take a look at debian. When it comes to my uses (server adminstration..botting programming) its great. Day to day user who has no experience..not so great.
