Pros: Smooth interface, n00b friendly
Cons: needs lots of addons to make it generally usable

Being a long time fan of Mint11 and needed to upgrade.
Tried Mint 13 Mate but did not realy like Caja filemanager.
So switched to Mint 16 Cinnamon an was pleasently surprised by it.
Installed the 64bit, but had a lot of quirks with diskswapping and -caching. Installed the 32bit version and all problems vanished.
Now I'm actively advertising it to possible "post-WindowsXP/Vista" converts and already scored four successes!
