That is exactly what they are thinking.
I don't know what the browser string of the browsers on Linux Mint looks like, but it doesn't show up on these reports:
I guess as Linux Mint has a distro based on Ubuntu and one on Debian it probably has Ubuntu or Debian in the string as well.
So we can't compare.

Any linux distribution shipping officially branded firefox by default and conforming to the constraints that Mozilla places on trademark usage will no longer be differentiated in these stats. It's already started to impact the Ubuntu stats significantly in the last couple of months, There is an accelerated downward trend in "Ubuntu" over the span of several months that can only be reasonably accounted for by this user agent string policy change. I fear that people will misattribute the drop in Ubuntu wikimedia user agents stats I expect to see after the 12.04 LTS release as a reduction in Ubuntu usage. And that would be a real shame.

There is usually project blogs that carry much more informations, and others specific source of news ( at least in the case of ubuntu and others ).
