Hi, I'm Juliet, I'm soon to be 19 and I've been using peppermint for a few years now, I've made a few posts asking for help on here before and  the support I received was awesome :) I figure I should introduce myself to the community if I'm gonna be sticking with this distro for so long
It's now official, you're one of us now.  There's no turning back ;D.  It's good to have you on board  ;)!!

bubaDUBadoo ?  Welcome !!!

Um... does the 'dub' part, in your nick, have anything to do with dubstep ?

I swear, someday, I'll run across another dubstep fan, outside the music communities.  ;D

Nope, nothing to do with dubstep! It's just a random username I came up with when I was like, ten, and since it's never taken I use it for everything   :P

Hi there,

I'm a middle aged Trade Union official living in the Midlands, England!  I originally looked into linux simply to try and breathe new life into our ageing family PC.  I also now take a keen interest in all things open source. I can see huge advantages to ordinary people having social media...and huge disadvantages to the code all being owned by corporations.

I discovered Ubuntu (and loved it) just before the switch to Unity (which I didn't love!). In fact we ended up buying a new windows pc for family use....

Since then I've been distro hopping , installing to USB hard drive and testing on a variety of machines.  I'm soon to be buying myself a laptop so am keen to settle on a distro.  Because I've not been using native hard drive, I've been using light distros.   LXLE desktop environment definitely seems the way to go, but they all seem a bit old fashioned.  Yet I'm knocked out by how modern Peppermint feels, and I'm massively impressed with ICE - is this the only distro with ICE?   All of a sudden, all my browser clutter is gone!  It's great, it really is.  Favourite websites now feel like bespoke apps.

The only gaming I do is a spot of Football Manager on Steam.   So this gets me thinking....when I get my decent laptop....why use resources on something lovely like Kubuntu if it might slow my football manager experience down?  And Peppermint is super fast now....with a native install on a decent machine, I think I'll be delighted with it's performance.   

So in short, I'm delighted to have found Peppermint - seems there are no limits with it, and it's looking very like this will be the distro I will settle on!
 
Cheers
Rick

Hi rickc

and welcome to the madhouse...  I am still looking (only cos I get bored when things just work - and they always do in Peppermint) but I have not yet found a better Distro than Peppermint.   It simply works, what more do you need.

Well you need a Healthy and Friendly Forum to help with problems and you certainly have one here.  You may have to wait a short while but someone always comes along with suggestions and solutions to fix most problems.  :)

HI rickc, a big welcome from me too  ;).  I think the progressive nature of Peppermint is going to suite your style.  We learn a lot here and in the process, have a lot of fun  ;D.
