Well, that's a lot of information!  :o
Most of them I did not understand as I am still new to Linux.  :D
But I love how you guys responded to my post! Thank you so much!  :)
This is what I love about peppermint, the community of helpful people.  ::)

I believe in the peppermint team. I believe they will do what is necessary to build up a better future for peppermint. Please continue this great work. Peppermint brought life back to my laptop. Please don't drop the project.  :(
I hope to see peppermint go way beyond peppermint 11.
Thank you for all the effort and love that you guys put in this OS.

just assume non-techy users are using peppermint and tailor the setup towards those users, point and click and avoid terminal usage. im not saying pep/linux users are like that but there may be the odd case so keep things easy. thats the main draw towards this distro, some advanced users think certain things are pointless but to newbs it means a lot. thats why linux mint is so popular, does most of the work so the end user doesnt have to.

hi grafiksinc,

Quote
It is getting late now I will respond to your after thought about the Software Manager tomorrow.
Again thank you for your, feed back it really is helpful.

I know you must be really busy with family, job, and developing P11.

When you mentioned about getting back to me a couple of days ago, i DO understand all the demands on your time trying to juggle around things, lol.

I will, of course be patient and wait until you are able to do so, as it is not a pressing issue, just curious is all as to the outcome.

Thanks again for your answering things for me so far, and thank you for all your hard work here.

Regards,

The Omen

@theoman exactly ...right there with you that's why you always have a choice  to use automated features.... or terminal or mint-update... or any other update gui.  ;)

I am happy to hear that Pep11 is getting closer and I appreciate all the work by the dev's to continue Mark's work.   
 
I like the way Pep10 uses the mint tray indicator but I dislike how Mint 20 makes the mint updater the priority method of updating.  I prefer to use synaptic and if the mint updater is running in the background, synaptic is effectively neutered.   I prefer how Pep10 allows the mint indicator to signal updates but I then I am free to update with mint updater or open synaptic to get the job done. 

I also prefer to avoid the automatic update approach.  To me that means a background process that starts to run without my consent.   I had a bad experience with FerenOS where it would run an update script at start up that took forever to finish(high CPU) and that process prevented me from using the OS until it had finished.  Mind you, it was a low spec laptop but the lack of control was irritating.   

I have been running Peppermint since 7 and no other distro comes close...for me.

@redwhite.....very good points, I do agree with you on the mint-update....
Admittedly so the automated updates on the front load does cause lag in my tests.
Thank you  ;) for your thoughts   

Yeah pep7 my favorite too especially the i3lock version they used. %uD83D%uDE01
