Nice, he's given both Peppermint 4 and now 5 pretty good reviews :)

BTW, the LXappearance custom colour thing *is* an upstream bug .. it seems it should be saving the custom colours to ~/.gtkrc-2.0 but it isn't  :-\

The devs seem to be ignoring the bug .. probably due to the switch to Qt

I like how enthusiastic the reviewer is. I am a bit puzzled by how much emphasis he puts on customizing the desktop, but then again I pretty much never customize the desktop so I guess that part isn't really geared toward me.

BTW, the LXappearance custom colour thing *is* an upstream bug .. it seems it should be saving the custom colours to ~/.gtkrc-2.0 but it isn't  :-\

I'm operating under the assumption that all of LXDE's GTK components will be unmaintained from here on. It sucks because a lot of them are quite nice.
