Linux Mint vs Ubuntu

Tried to install Mint on my Acer Aspire 3 but when it restarted after the install it came up with a picture of a lock and message saying secure boot failure. Reinstalled and got the same message.

Decided to try Ubuntu to see if it gave the same message. It installed and is working just fine. Now I'm wondering what the difference is?

Thanks for that input. I think I'll stay with Ubuntu since it works OK. Good to get information to help me understand things.

Mint comes more ready for playing media.
With Ubuntu you need to install 'restricted extras' .
