Yeah, I think if we continue to push "choice" over "cloud" we'll do alright :)

It's weird that other distros (such as Arch) have now picked up ICE but nobody's saying "I won't use Arch, it's a 'cloud' distro"  ???
(I'm not saying this guy did .. just "in general")

Yeah a much better summary of some of Peppermint's features, very upbeat  ;)Arch was a well established distro before Ice hit the scene.  It's inclusion in AUR is seen as an added feature, rather than a component of a web based distro.  Ain't that a kicker :))!!

The choice between "cloud" and "locally installed" programs or any combination of the two!

I'm thinking replace "cloud" with "web apps", and maybe switch them around .. it seems to be the word "cloud" that's the sticking point

User choice between locally installed software and easily integrated web apps...

Indeed, web apps sounds much better!  8)
I save this because I've a feeling I will be needing it in the future!

Great Team!  ;)
