  2. Joseph Dickson

    Thanks Mark,
    Truth be told I had trouble finding flaws with the beta and only could contribute a tiny bit. You and the others really put out a fantastic product.

  3. Barney

    Thank you everyone for all your efforts. Peppermint has been my default distro, as well as one of the most polished, for several years now.

    The ISO is not right. You pass it to a pen usb or burn it on a DVD and it does not start, will you solve it?

    1. Mark Greaves

      Hi Raul,

      Could you please raise this issue on the support forum, explaining how you tried to create the LiveUSB and LiveDVD .. and we’ll be happy to try assist :)

  5. esjay

    Just wanted to compliment yall on your hard work and fantastic release. I am quite the distro hopper and have a laptop purely dedicated to trying everything under the sun and seeing what it can and cant do. I really have to say that since I found peppermint, mainly do to English Bob’s youtube channel, I could not be more happy with this distro. Its fast, complete, beautiful, functional and rock freaking solid stable. Everything feels familiar but different, in a very good way. It has just enough flair from you as developers to make it stand out and give it those neat peppermint only features, but close enough to similar bases that I know what I’m doing right away. This has now moved to my daily laptop and I cant find a flaw or even a criticism so far. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to a truly outstanding project!

    1. Mark Greaves

      Now that’s what I call a glowing endorsement, thanks very much for sharing your Peppermint experience Jaws .. the team get a real lift when they hear their efforts are appreciated.

    I installed the iso image on a usb pin. thats OK.
    When I use this USB to install Peppermint on a pc all goes well until I
    shall select the partition I want to install Peppermint. You can only select
    the partition on the USB.

    I have found Peppermint Linux since release Two.
    Since then I use Live USB Peppermint on regular basis for (considering that I’m mainly Win user):
    * I need to check if some PC’s hardware works correctly, especialy LAN, WLAN and SOUND components
    * I want to use Internet and leave no trace on PC
    * I need fast and AIO drivers ready system to boot up
    * I want to learn Linux and find out all beauties of it
    * I need to do something (anything) what I can’t do in Win
    * or simply I need clean and virus free, blazing fast envrinoment

    I have checked a tons of Linux distributions on all kind of PCs (slow, old, bad, corrupted, fast&furious) during last 10 or so years, but Peppermint is undoubtly CHOICE NUMBER 1 for me.

    You are doing excellent stuff here guys, and I wish you all the best!

    1. Mark Greaves

      Thanks very much for the kind feedback ali, great to hear you’ve been enjoying Peppermint for that long :)

  11. James

    Thank you! Best OS yet, and I love the look. Is it possible to save my customized changes to USB so I can use it as live CD on another computer? Thanks again for all you do.

    What are the minimum system requirements for Peppermint 9

    1. Mark Greaves

      We generally dislike giving “Minimum System Requirements” because not only will they differ for different hardware, but they’re pretty meaningless in the real world.
      I mean what exactly do you mean by “Minimum Requirements” ?, the ABSOLUTE bare minimum with which it will install ? .. why would anyone want to know that ?, and do you mean from the command line, from the initial screen, or from a Live environment ? (which will all differ).
      Surely “Minimum where the machine is still useful for getting things done” would make more sense, but then we run into the problem of “useful” meaning different things to different people.
      Here’s the thing, we see a lot of distros saying things like “Minimum Requirements = 128MB RAM”, well that’s just ridiculous, I’m pretty sure people would want to be able to actually do something like browse the web, and a modern browser will immediately have that system on its knees and swapping like crazy.
      Our stated System requirements are here:
      but we’re trying to be honest with them, which is why we also have “recommended” and “preferred” minimums, which in the real world make a bit more sense.

    I have worked only in a Windows environment all my 23 year work career. After a lot of thinking for years I jumped into starting my own small business. That’s when I thought of using one of the 2 Dell laptops lying idle at home. One is with i3 and other i5 but both around 5 years old. They both had Windows 8 installed on them but without any software like MS Office. Then I researched on the web and chanced upon an article about Open source Linux. It got me interested and my first Linux OS that I installed on my Dell laptop was Zorin. I used it for my work for about a month and then I kept distro hopping. Now after trying Mint, Manjaro, Fedora, etc now since past 4 months I have settled on Solus on my work laptop. My wife also wanted to do some general stuff like web browsing, watching youtube videos on cooking and knitting and some emails. So I checked out about some lightweight Linux distros on the web and youtube reviews. I thought Peppermint impressed me the most so I installed it on the other Dell laptop lying at home. The best thing was it was so lightweight and everything worked perfectly out of the box. It recognized the HP deskjet printer scanner in a flash as the USB port was connected.
    Now during my free time I tinker with peppermint on my wife’s laptop. It is an amazing distro I must say. Minimal Lightweight distro but gets everything done for a home user without any issues.
    Maybe in near future I may even change my work laptop from Solus to Peppermint.
    Cheers to the Peppermint team for such a fantastic distro.

      Thanks for the kind feedback Mahesh, great to hear you and your wife are enjoying Peppermint .. Peppermint 10 is due out in the next few days, maybe you’d like to try that on your work laptop ;)
