Review: Peppermint OS

Filed under

While we wait for the release of some of the major distros' mid year upgrades, I thought I'd present a new Linux flavor which looks and performs very well: Peppermint OS.


Peppermint OS uses the popular LiveCD for installation. You can download the ISO image from HERE. Simply copy it to a CD and boot from it.

The boot process is not worthy of any special attention. Starting with a simple text menu, the OS loads considerably fast for a LiveCD and before you know it, the LXDE desktop is in front of you. From there on, simply click on the "Install Peppermint OS" shortcut and follow the usual steps.

Peppermint OS lineage includes Debian, Ubuntu and Linux Mint. That shows on the installation wizard as well as on many internal features.
