    I have tried. many. It sure is, as of now, an overall leader – to me. everything works, anything is doable. I use it everywhere possible (sometimes need Windows GIH Windows10).
    Just now I thought I’d try PClos for the latest Wireshark package. nope, wireless is crippled, to much for me to fix it, and I know that PClos maintainers would not hesitate to ruin my fixing with next update, been there. Returning to Peppermint – built driver in live, works perfect.

    Similar experience. With my old Dell Vostro 1000 (2007 manufacture date), I tried to install something that would work right out of the box, with no tweaking. I landed here with Peppermint OS, which I knew nothing about. I had tried several “lightweight” distros for this 32-bit hardware system. They all had at least one weakness, either during the installation or afterwards. Except for Peppermint. What I see so far, I really like. No shortcuts were taken, and it reflects a design with the user in mind, who might not want to spend a lot of time trying to make it work.

    Well said. Peppermint OS has been my daily driver on a surplus HP t620 since March 2020. The clean UI makes for an easy transition from Windoze.
    You mention package managers in your blog. I was delighted to find commercial DEB packages available for my WFH essentials: Zoom, Citrix Workspace, even BlueJeans!

    Using Peppermint 10 on my Acer Cloudbook 14. Can you believe that only 2 GB RAM you can do multiple things at the same time? I use this setup for working at home and I usually have LibreOffice opened, a few Terminal windows and a browser… and it’s still fast. Like, very fast. I even installed my wife’s WordPress homepage using this little cloudbook. With Peppermint I can do everything except gaming, thankfully I have desktop pc for that purpose. :)

    PeppermintOS is the best Linux distribution for me. Thank you very much.
