A First Look at Linux Mint 9

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of weeks ago, we talked a little 
| about the upcoming artwork of Linux Mint 9 
| (codename Isadora) and the plans Clement 
| Lefebvre had for this next major version of 
| the Linux Mint operating system. However, 
| today, we are proud to present a few 
| screenshots and introduce you guys to the 
| main features of Linux Mint 9 (Isadora). 
| First of all, you should know that Linux 
| Mint 9 RC is a development release and it 
| shouldn't be used on production machines. 
| The final release may be available in a few 
| weeks!
| [...]
| Linux Mint is and will always be an 
| elegant, easy-to-use, up-to-date, 100% free 
| and comfortable Linux operating system 
| based on the very popular Ubuntu OS. It 
| offers paid commercial support to companies 
| and individuals. Also, free community 
| support is available from the forums and 
| the IRC channel.


Mint 9 features new software manager, backup tool

,----[ Quote ]
| The other key improvement is a new Backup 
| Tool, which offers features like 
| incremental backups, compression, and 
| integrity checks, says the Mint team. Users 
| can now identify installed software, save 
| the selection as a list, and then restore 
| the selection on a different computer or on 
| a new version of Linux Mint, says the team.



Peppermint OS: a review

,----[ Quote ]
| You get Peppermint OS, thatâs what! Brought
| to you by the same developer responsible
| for Linux Mint 8 LXDE Community Edition,
| and for resurrecting Linux Mint Fluxbox CE
| as well, Peppermint OS is a lightweight,
| fast, stable implementation of what Kendall
| Weaverâs vision of the perfect Linux distro
| might be for speed and the web.
| [...]
| Peppermint OS is among the first to try a
| lot of what itâs doing, and I think it does
| a great job of that. The sheer speed,
| respect for old hardware and minimal
| resources, and stability alone make it a
| standout, but the smooth way the Peppermint
| team (Iâm looking at you, Kendall!)
| implemented the webapps seamlessly with the
| other native client-side applications makes
| this distro feel like itâs something thatâs
| taken the next step toward a larger
| universe. That universe has the personal
| computer not being simply confined to
| running its code all by itself, but being
| embedded and a part of the web and the rest
| of the world as a whole.
| And thatâs something I find exciting.
| My feelings about using Peppermint are
| overwhelmingly positive. Itâs intuitive and
| user-friendly and I can honestly say that
| Iâm going to leave it on this laptop for a
| while and see how things go. So far Iâm
| very impressed, so I want to keep using it!
| Great job, Peppermint team! I look forward
| to whatâs coming next!


Peppermint: A New Linux Flavor for the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| A new cloud-focused Linux flavor launched
| recently; known as Peppermint, the operating
| system has entered a small, private beta and
| will open up to more testers over the next two
| to four weeks.


Peppermint: A New Linux OS for the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| The Peppermint distro is being developed by
| Kendall Weaver, the maintainer for the Linux
| Mint Fluxbox and LXDE Editions, and Shane
| Remington, who works alongside Weaver as a
| developer at their day job at Astral IX Media in
| Asheville, N.C.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
