If you mean between Ubuntu and Mint, to start with, I don't remember if 
Ubuntu has login.defs ---most likely it does.

But beyond that, Mint started as basically an Ubuntu redistribution with 
non-libre codecs that might cause problems in countries with software 
patents (the USA and Japan, as far as I know), codecs that are not part 
of the Ubuntu default installation (that is, not in the DVD, but you can 
install on your own).

But with the recent move of Ubuntu as a competitor for MacOS-iOS and 
Microsoft 8 (one interface does it all ---desktop, tablet and 
television), which has alienated many traditional desktop users like me, 
Mint is gradually moving away from Ubuntu and getting closer to Debian; 
and it does provide various alternatives to the also controversial Gnome 
3 (like Mate and Cinnamon, as well as Mint Gnome Extensions), and 
*doesn't* provide Unity.
