Team Peppermint is proud to release its second offering: Peppermint Ice. This is not an upgrade to replace Peppermint OS One, but another project that we will be under constant development from here forward. Peppermint Ice was developed around Chromium as its default browser and a brand new SSB [Site Specific Browser] Application was developed by Kendall Weaver named “Ice” which this new Peppermint variant is named after.
Peppermint Ice Specs
* i386 or derivative processor (AMD64 and x86_64 are fine as well)
* 192 MB of RAM
* 4 GB hard drive space (this is an overestimate just for good measure)
Under the Hood:
* Pcmanfm 0.9.7
* Openbox 184.108.40.206
* Xorg 1.7.6
* Lxsession 0.4.3
Default Cloud Applications:
Note: The default Cloud Applications are simply included in Peppermint Ice as an example of the flexibility of the Peppermint Ice SSB as opposed to locally installed applications [see “What is Ice” below]. These defaults can easily be removed and added again later as the user sees fit.
Editor by Pixlr [Image Editor], Facebook, Hulu, Last.FM, Pandora, Seesmic Web, The Cloud Player, YouTube, Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Mail, Google Reader
Default Installed Applications:

Love the look, installed and enjoying the ride. Peppermint already there!
Congratulations on a great Distro.
Best distro I’ve ever used on my IBM T30 thinkpad
– Speed of Puppy Linux
– Out-of-the box functionality of Mint
– Maturity, ease-of-use and software availability of Ubuntu
I just donated $10 urge all other Peppermint fans to join
Thanks for both Peppermint OS and Peppermint Ice. They are now my default installs on older hardware. I have installed them on a number of friends’ and family’s PCs.
