We’d like to take a moment to welcome all the newcomers to Peppermint OS and all the kind words we are getting from around the globe. Our release day on Monday was fantastic as we saw several thousand downloads fly off of the servers and many more seeded via Bit Torrent. Special thanks to those who are willing to share their own resources to get Peppermint into more hands, we deeply appreciate it. And another big thanks to those who pitched in to make Peppermint OS a possibility…
Like any other product that releases onto the market there are issues that arise and Peppermint OS is ready to listen and address them. At any time on our site you can use the Feedback tab to the right of the page or you can bookmark the Community Support page and post questions, issues and praise. On Twitter you can follow @PeppermintOS and also pose questions to @AskPeppermint
There is one thing that I’d like to address head-on and that is the sampling of web applications that we are currently shipping with Peppermint. Yesterday we were very happy to watch a video of a Peppermint OS One installation by Tim at OSGUI from Melbourne Australia. One thing I did note is that when Tim was explaining the main menu and looking at the different software and cloud applications that there were a few that are not available outside of the USA, namely Hulu and Pandora. I’d like to take the time now to apologize to anyone who took that as an offense as that was not the intention. In order to introduce those who have never interacted with Prism before, having a few pre-installed launchers was the best way we saw as a quick introduction.
Again, thanks to those who have downloaded Peppermint OS One and are giving it a spin. If there is anything you need outside of support related issues please don’t hesitate to drop me a line. Got a great idea? Awesome. I’d love to hear it.
Welcome to all
