Are there plans to release PeppermintOS for ARM? [1]
« on: September 05, 2016, 02:57:05 pm »
[1] As this is the internet, and people often take questions as some kind of demand, let me reassure you that I am sincerely simply asking and not demanding or even requesting.

I was wondering because I am thinking of Peppermint on a Raspberry Pi, or an ODroid.

Sure Raspian or Ubuntu (respectively) work fine, but not only do I like options, I really like the philosophy of PeppermintOS.

Not at present.

I put out feelers to the G+ Raspberry Pi community a while ago asking if they thought there would be any call for a Peppermint version for the Pi .. they pretty much said "meh, no", I also approached the Raspberry Pi foundation for a development Pi and they said no too .. so I'm in no crazy rush to go out of my way.

Besides the Pi, there's nothing really with enough market share to make it worthwhile.

But if any hardware manufacturers/vendors want to talk I'd be happy to do so ;)

Well, the particulars were a bit unexpected (and really, they shouldn't have been with the way the Raspberry Pi foundation seems to be going), but the end result was about as expected - and completely understandable.

Thanks for letting me know.
