Peppermint OS is an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution that aims to be lightning fast and easy on system resources.

Peppermint OS is an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution that aims to be lightning fast and easy on system resources.

By employing Mozilla's Prism technology Peppermint integrates seamlessly with Cloud and web-based applications.

The distribution's other features include automatic updates, easy step-by-step installation, sleek and user-friendly interface, and increased mobility by integrating directly with Cloud-based applications.

Don't get me wrong here though, Peppermint OS is an interesting idea and one takes advantage of the current hot trends in computing. Other have kinda/sorta tried this route before (remember gOS?) and it's certainly a good idea. Just be aware that you don't necessarily have to switch distro's to get the benefits of a 'cloud OS' though, with a few tweaks you may be able to leverage what you're already using.

Peppermint One

Default Cloud Applications:

Note: The default Cloud Applications are simply included in Peppermint One as an example of the flexibility of Mozilla’s Prism technology as opposed to locally installed applications. These defaults can easily be removed and added again later as the user sees fit. There is an article on removal in the FAQ as well as adding them in the Quickstart Guide

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.

Updates:


Peppermint OS Kendall Weaver has announced the release of Peppermint OS Two, a lightweight, Lubuntu-based distribution featuring the Openbox window manager: "It is our distinct honor to announce the release of the second major iteration of Peppermint OS. Peppermint Two is now available either for free download or via purchasable live CD. This edition is based upon Lubuntu 11.04 and includes a number of new features. Also this marks the first time Peppermint has been available for the 64-bit architecture. I'll take a moment to cover some of the new features present in this release: we're now using Chromium as the default web browser in our main release; the Ice SSB application has added functionality for removing SSBs as well as creating them; we've added some additional example SSBs to the default install from pixlr...."
