  • New beginnings

    But it’s time to move on, and I’m sorry to report that this will be my last issue here at Future Publishing. Andrew Gregory and Ben Everard have also decided to leave, so it’s something of a new beginning at Linux Format Towers. I’ve had some wonderful times here, from interviewing Linus Torvalds and breaking the Raspberry Pi story, to challenging expectations with our ‘Learn to Hack’ and ‘Beat the CIA’ features, all of which I’m very proud of, especially in the light of recent surveillance revelations.

Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
