well mint is basiclly ubuntu with bits missing (usually media stuff) and 
stuff fixed

I usually setup autologin when I install, but you can fix by login menu 
(usually under system/administration/login menu), lets you set autologin
startup stuff is set by preferences/startup applications (i'm running 
conky scripts via that, and also disable stuff, like blue tooth and 
remote access)

Also I dont like the fancy menu in mint and change it back to the simple 
menu via panel add application

setting this touch pad/note (never sure what to call it) as a 
reader/clock/alarm and anything else I want beside the bed :)

Have to admit I keep tossing between ubuntu and mint

one thing you MUST add is UBUNTU TWEAK
for ubuntu http://ubuntu-tweak.com/
for mint 
(the mint version is a fixed version to reconise mint properly and to 
add the extra ppa's)

Hope that helps ya with BOTH ubuntu & mint :)
