or maybe Mint but there seem to be so many versions how well are they maintained?
Mint doesn't have a server edition and while you can always use a desktop version and butcher it into a server setup, it's easier and faster to just start from something like Ubuntu Server. It has the same software-compatibility as Mint (since Mint is based on Ubuntu).
As for the original question: DLNA and other media functions are well supported. You may have to do some research and/or installation of extra software, but you should be able to copy pretty much any feature that WHS has.
