Re: Sounds mint
Having upgraded recently I can assure you that you have made a sensible decision (for now at least). There aren't any "must have" features in the new release and if everything is working for you then you might as well stick with it.
FWIW: The only reason I upgraded was that I had broken the blue tooth components and could not get it working again. Serves me right for trying to install and then uninstall some shady software without backing up first.
