The Peppermint Twist Is Still Cool

Filed under
OS
Reviews

Peppermint is a solid Linux operating system with a record for good performance and reliability. It is an ideal choice for handling everyday computing chores.

LXDE provides a fast and friendly desktop environment. The entire desktop package and tweaked Peppermint 7 settings give you lots of options for creating a comfortable platform. My only dissatisfaction is the lack of much in the way of desktop animation effects. All it provides are semi-transparent application interfaces in the background.

The Peppermint community is headed by the Peppermint OS LLC, a software company based in Asheville, North Carolina. Founded in 2010, the open source company issues one major release per year. A partial upgrade rolls out periodically.

The long-awaited Maru OS source release

Filed under
OS
OSS

Hey guys,

I'm happy to announce that Maru has been fully open-sourced under The Maru OS Project!

There are many reasons that led me to open-source Maru (https://blog.maruos.com/2016/02/11/maru-is-open-source/),
but a particularly important one is expanding Maru's device support with
the help of the community.

If you'd like to help out with a device port (even just offering to test a
new build helps a lot), let the community know on the device port planning
list (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/maru-os-dev/YufKu...)
. We currently have a few Nexus, LG, and Motorola builds being planned. If
you don't see your device on there and would like to help with development
or testing, please do chip in and we'll get it added to the list.
