Nice one [emoji6]!

Although I don't really like when reviewers write "...is ideal for machines with older hardware"; It works really great on modern hardware also... [emoji16]

I agree, it gives the impression it's somehow limited, I'd rather they said it will run great both low and high spec hardware, even if they didn't emphasise it'll fly on high spec hardware

I thought it was a nice balanced article.

I have commented on modern hardware and our great community too  :)

It's a nice review.

I consider peppermint to be a great all-purpose operating system.  i'm building a machine for my nephew at the moment.  He's one of these precocious video creator types.  I've set him up a triple-boot machine (a quad core, octo-threaded xeon, with 12Gb RAM - one of the Dell T3500's.  i love those machines). Windows for school stuff, ubuntu studio for media creation and editing, and peppermint as the general purpose operating system.

I chose peppermint ahead of everything out there as an easy to use flexible choice.

Jujare's review is spot-on!  Good one, guys. :)
[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

I thought this one was a great review as well.  If you were a new person considering this OS at all.....I think it would motivate you to at least install it and give it a go.  I also liked the graph on highlighting  how active Peppermint OS was.
