What's all the fuss about Peppermint OS? (Download Squad)

May 11th 2010 7:50PM I'll have to argue that this article is on a very subjective topic. I think Peppermint is much like the MacBook Air--it's only right for some people.
Peppermint is a very specific distro. For example, it's not what I myself would install onto my laptop, but I can see it 100% useful for bribing my brother into doing what I want by letting him use his computer after-hours (parental controls).
Peppermint is not a cloud OS, the way I see it. It is simply a fast web-centric Linux Distro. If it was purely cloud, it would probably be called FluffMint or something. It can still install regular Linux apps, rendering it something pretty useful.
This post definitely has some good arguments. But any negative conclusions on something so young does not get received well.
Also, to put this article to a little perspective: https://kendalltristan.wordpress.com/2010/04/30/on-the-decision-to-build-a-new-distro/
