Weekend ruined

Macworld Insiders know the Macalope works hard all week. So, when the weekend comes, he likes to put his hooves up and enjoy some alfalfa and a grain-based beverage while watching Internet cat videos. Is that too much to ask? Apparently it is, according to PCWorld’s Katherine Noyes.

Why else would she have so thoughtlessly decided to write this insipid piece—”Post-MacDefender, Linux Looks Better Than Ever“—about Mac and Linux security?

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. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
