Peppermint: Just like any other Lubuntu, only more so

,----[ Quote ]
| Ultimately it all falls to preference, and 
| weâre back to the most important idea: 
| Freedom to change and choose. So if 
| Peppermint appeals to you because you 
| believe youâre sparing your netbook the 
| effort of thrashing through the Gnome 
| desktop, and at the same time undercutting 
| the system requirements of Lubuntu â well, 
| you are always welcome to use it.


Review: Peppermint OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Peppermint OS is a very nice project with 
| a fresh and very interesting approach to 
| how Linux should shape up for modern 
| users. Far from the extremely minimalistic 
| approach taken by Google with Google 
| Chrome OS, Peppermint OS actually keeps 
| enough local weight to keep your attention 
| when you can't go online.
| In fact, one thing I specially like about 
| Peppermint's approach is that it provides 
| lots of flexibility. On the one hand, you 
| may choose to go minimalistic, going for 
| an OS that can take as little as 512MB of 
| hard drive space. Nothing would prevent 
| you from installing many of the 
| applications available and beefing up the 
| local catalog though, consequently getting 
| closer to a standard desktop OS.


Cloud-ready Peppermint OS blasts off to fast start

,----[ Quote ]
| A fast-booting, cloud-oriented, 
| "Peppermint OS" Ubuntu variant has been 
| downloaded 25,000 times in its first week. 
| Meanwhile, Red Hat clone CentOS has been 
| released in version 5.5, adding features 
| including enhanced KVM virtualization and 
| improved WiFi support, and pioneering 
| Linux distro-maker Mandriva is up for 
| sale.

Peppermint OS One

,----[ Quote ]
| If the name âPeppermint OSâ reminds you of
| Linux Mint, itâs no accident. Kendall Weaver,
| one of the Peppermint OS developers, is also
| the maintainer for the Linux Mint Fluxbox and
| LXDE editions.


Peppermint: Ask and they deliver

,----[ Quote ]
| To me, Linux is still largely about
| community, and my experiences with
| Peppermint and my interactions with the team
| of individuals responsible for putting it
| together have done nothing if not reinforce
| that.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
