I think overall that's a pretty fair review, if slightly missing the point of minimal locally installed apps :)

and apparently (?) overlooking the metapackages.

Yeah, the reviewer hit many of the high points. Not bad. Also I like that one of the comments notes that we don't really use LXDE in a strict sense, but rather use a combination of components.

Dunno hows thorough he was, but interesting that Peppermint has a smaller memory footprint than Lubuntu :)
