Peppermint OS - Uninspiring


Peppermint OS is a Ubuntu, or rather, Lubuntu derivate, focused on cloud computing. The distribution is supposed to be very lightweight, running the simple yet should-be elegant Openbox desktop, which you've encountered in my Crunchbang review, while providing users with the wonders and marvels of the cloud.

Sounds good and definitely merits a review. I do have to admit I was a little leery of testing yet another Ubuntu fork. Most smaller distributions just don't have the necessary resources to pull off the right amount of QA to guarantee a solid, stable and bug-free release for their audience. And then, there's the matter of uniqueness. After you've tested half a dozen Ubuntu forks, you kind of wonder if there's any reason for yet another.
