No.  The numbered versions are based on Ubuntu (Mint 12 is current, 
based on 11.10), but have significant tweaks throughout.  There are 
other variants.  The Debian one is cherry-picked from Debian unstable 
and is a rolling release.
I tried a Ubuntu 10.10 beta netbook remix with Unity on my Asus EeePC 
netbook, and after a month dumped it for Mint 10 because Unity sux. 
Mint's menu layout is compact and logical, and I'm very happy with this 
distro on the netbook.
