Dude, you have a serious case of distro hoppertitus.

So, I don't know why I bother trying other Linux distributions sometimes.  (and I don't even do it often)  Stuff that  just works in Peppermint requires some hair pulling to get working or just flat out doesn't work in other distributions.  ::)

Hi,  I ALWAYS ask myself that question (incurable Distro Hopper  ::)) and ALWAYS come back to Peppermint.

Regards Zeb...

Well, I never left Peppermint.  It's still my everyday OS.  I have a small partition set aside in case I want to try other distributions.  Mostly, the partition just sits there unused.  Yesterday, I decided to try something, but Peppermint was still where it was supposed to be. :)

Oh don't get me wrong, Peppermint never leaves the PC or the Laptop.  I just install something alongside it.

I used to have that.  Peppermint pretty much cured me.  ;)

I can honestly say I've never suffered from it .. When I got into Linux I tried a few, settled on Ubuntu (because the others were awful at the time), then Peppermint when Ubuntu went to Unity.

Since then I've never felt the need to move. Of course i now 'test' out other distros for ideas but I've never felt the need to keep even one.

Guess I'm hoppertitus immune.

Yeah I have to say I don't really suffer from it unless I get pushed away  :'(
I started with Ubuntu until they began changing the 'X' from the right to the left of the window panes.
Then I hung around Linux Mint for a long time, but they started to feel bloated with each release. And the hacking incident about  a year or so ago was my excuse to jump  :P

I almost moved in with Ubuntu-Mate--- but found Peppermint just in time.  8)

Well, I removed KaOS.  I'm sure it's a nice enough distro, if you don't mind limitations.  Since they have no 32-bit software at all, apps with 32-bit dependencies won't even work right.  That includes WINE, so obviously not a project aimed at Windows users.

Speaking of WINE, I had a pretty big mess in my Peppermint install between WINE and POL.  I could have cleaned it all out, but I decided a reinstall is faster, and it gets rid of my GOG games too.  I hav a dedicated gaming machine, so I don't need that stuff on my desktop.
