In recent times, I’ve come across many Linux Distros that have intrigued me. Some because of Performance and others by Appearance. But, as I’ve covered earlier here, Lubuntu is a crazy fast Linux distro with LXDE as the default Desktop Environment. But, it feels a bit retro – grade with customization but still not – so – modern feels at boot. Therefore, Peppermint Linux can be considered as a better version of Lubuntu with a more pleasant feel out of the box.
Peppermint Linux is based on Lubuntu (LTS) and ( obviously 😉 ) uses LXDE as the default Experience. One of the best parts about this OS is that its bloat free and Accent Themed i.e. a color can be set as a base for all the theming. Of course, It’s crazy fast, stable, and secure. I mean, Man, I really need a bad OS to review. Comment down your worst choice of Linux Distro. :/
Peppermint OS also features ICE, a web app generator that embeds the web app as a native one. The app opens in a separate window and really feels like a native app. Kind of like Chrome Apps, but more customizable. I would recommend setting Chromium as Default Browser to enjoy at its best.
The Distribution is ranked at 25 with 417 hits per day on Distrowatch.com
Peppermint considers it self a ” Real Deal Desktop Cloud Linux ” which I personally feels is a little boasty but try it for yourself.
