Linux on Power

Linux

ostatic.com: In the office today is an old IBM P-Series running OpenSUSE. We’ve had nothing but outstanding uptime with the box, but for some reason, before now, we have not considered expanding our Linux infrastructure to more Power systems.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! 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.
