  4. Wow, what a fast and lovely distro, I love it!! Keep up the good work!! Gaming on it is great!!

      Thanks for the kind feedback Ed B., glad you’re enjoying your Peppermint experience :)

  5. I have said before. But I will say it again. After the end of #! I was at a loss to find my new home in linux. I found it here with peppermint. This simply for me is my new linux home. I feel fortunate to be here. Now if the community could sort out an IRC channel? That would be pretty awesome. I know Ubuntu and Debian have channels, but for a derivative distro like this? It would really help those with little too no experience and in the same? Those with a ton of experience looking to teach & share what they have learned along the way.
    Peppermint is my new home. I am really happy to be here. I really do love this distro. I want to find any an all ways I can give back.
    I get having a facebook group etc. But please think about an irc presences? For guys like me that are turning 40 this month? Many of us to not twitter nor do we care about facebook.
    This distro is simply amazing in all respects. But there should be a support channel for those that do not wish to twitter nor facebook. I think there could be more users installing/trying/using Peppermint if there was some sort of support channel aside from the forums.
    I remember years ago how frustrating forums can be, when you are trying to sort something out? You want to find an answer soon. Not wait days. And like I said.. Many of us in the linux community do not facebook..
    So a thought to the dev’s is all. I am and will be a diehard peppermint users for as long as it is around. And if I can help in anyway? Let me know.

    V/R,
    Drakken

      Hi Drakken and thanks for the kind words. We did have an IRC channel for a few years, and indeed Xchat installed by default linking to it, but despite that it never received much traffic so wasn’t worth the maintenance. We aren’t big on social media either (used more just for announcements), but we DO maintain an active presence on our support forum which can often be nearly as ‘real time’ as IRC.
      https://forum.peppermintos.com
      is our official and preferred point of contact for anything from support requests to general chat .. we have a small but extremely friendly community vibe going on over there and would love it if you dropped by.
