Peppermint OS Three: between the cloud and the desktop

Filed under
Linux

The cloud era is coming. Some people can argue whether this is good or bad. Maybe that’s only the fashion. Maybe not. Although more and more people think of the cloud as if it were the inevitable future.

That’s why cloud-oriented operating systems come into play. What are the most widely-known of them? I can name three from the top of my memory: Chrome OS, xPud and Peppermint OS.

Let’s talk about Peppermint OS today. Their latest release was issued at the end of July 2012, when Peppermint OS Three was presented.

Lenovo Announces The Lenovo Cast, A $49 Miracast-Based Android To TV Screen Mirroring Puck

Unlike the Chromecast, which uses Google's proprietary casting technology, Lenovo Cast is built on Miracast and DLNA, the standards that are available in most modern Android devices (sometimes under the Miracast option and other times under Wireless Display).

On the downside, if your device's screen turns off you'll see nothing on the TV, but on the upside, Miracast is less reliant on WiFi networks so it should work where the Chromecast usually stumbles like hotel rooms for example.
