From Organic Design
Linux Mint is a free operating system using the Linux kernel, but most of the basic OS tools come from the GNU project; hence the name GNU/Linux. At Organic Design we install Linux Mint on our workstations and have been using it since early 2014. We changed to Linux Mint mainly due to the fact that they're very up to date with their choice of Linux kernel version which allowed me to use my touch-screen on my Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro (XE700T1C) and fixed a long-standing bug on Beth's Lenovo Ideapad S10-3 which prevented it from resuming from standby, but we've found it to be a very nice distro and will continue using it as our choice of OS for our workstation machines.
