Peppermint OS review

Here’s something I haven’t done in far too long..an OS review of course. So, my latest offering is called Peppermint OS. Yes, the name is why I chose to review it. This particular Linux OS has two versions..One and Ice. I am reviewing Peppermint OS One. The Ice version is all cloud based. The operating system is a fork of Lubuntu, which is Ubuntu with the LXDE desktop environment, a lightweight desktop.

Using the Live CD method, still to date my personal favourite way of trying out a new OS, I rebooted and waited for Peppermint to load. The loading time wasn’t that long, about the same as Ubuntu 10.04 and Mint 9, just a couple of tads shorter Wink

The desktop is nice in appearance, a red and black (& white) Peppermint theme.
