What's all the fuss about Peppermint OS?

Several big sites have been blogging excitedly about Peppermint OS. ReadWriteWeb's Sarah Perez referred to Peppermint as "A new Linux OS for the cloud," but is it really? I decided to download and install Peppermint so that I could find out for myself.

Find a home for your unfinished songs on Rifflet

Rifflet is the perfect meeting ground for musicians without a muse.

Megaman vs. Ghosts 'n Goblins - Today's Time Waster

I've seen a few classic video game mash-ups before, like the brilliant Pong vs. Asteroids (okay I just made that up), but found many of them lacking. Mega Man vs. Ghosts 'n Goblins, however, is a masterpiece. It's a Flash game that seamlessly blends the original Mega Man and Ghosts 'n Goblins, a game I could never beat, into something that looks like it came right out of the basement of a bored...
