Peppermint Ice review
Does Peppermint Ice, the new cloud-oriented desktop distro, have what it takes to do for desktops what Jolicloud and Google Chrome OS are doing for netbooks?
Pros: Blazingly fast OS. The Ice applet lets you easily create attractive shortcuts to cloud-based applications
Cons: Doesn’t have enough features to warrant the ‘cloud-oriented’ OS sticker
Cloud applications are all the rage these days, and so are cloud-oriented Linux distributions, it seems. Meet a new entrant to the increasingly crowded arena of distros that bring the cloud to your desktop – Peppermint OS.
Almost nobody nowadays builds Linux distros from scratch, and Peppermint OS is no exception. The new distro is based – yes, you’ve guessed it – on the latest version of Ubuntu 10.04.
