This was interesting, Peppermint 8 with the Budgie desktop.



I'm not a budgie fan but it was interesting.

Hi stevesveryown,

That is the beauty of Linux (and PeppermintOS): you can use all sorts of different desktops and retain the best points of the underlying OS. I too am not a big fan of the Budgie desktop, but if that is what someone prefers -- then go for it !  :)
Regards,

Not a fan of this antipodean. ( quickly got sick of him moaning about things he didn't "loik".  I'll have to download and checkout this spin though.  That way I can do it without him chuntering in the background.  I can't see how Budgie would fit the Peppermint profile.  As I said, I'll have to check it out  ;).

I run for cover whenever I see a keyring box appear for Chromium.

Not to knock anyone's project, but wouldn't this basically be the same thing as Ubuntu Budgie?

Probably  :).  He also probably in violation of the Open source Licensing Agreement.  He's not removed the Peppermint branding and Ray Bilcliff's images before packaging and distributing the ISO.  It's a bit cheeky, especially if the build is a load of garbage.  It'll give potential first time Peppermint users the wrong impression and undermine all the good work Mark and the team have done  :(.

The main thing I took from this video is that the phrase "the integration works well" obviously means something quite different in Australia ???

It didn't look very appealing.  That's for sure.

The concept is cool enuff, but the implementation could do with some polish.

When I saw the keyring box, I figured that Budgie must be branching off of GNOME.  Over time I've seen GNOME moving more and more in a direction of its own.  Am I wrong about this?  Or is Budgie on top of LXDE an okay fit? :-\

He did ramble on. I almost stopped until I saw him booting up peppermint  I just thought it was cool it was peppermint.  Between EB and Zeb, the word of Peppermint is growing faster and faster.

Hi stevesveryown,

It's good to see and hear anything about Peppermint.  I remember hearing years ago that Budgie was going to be the desktop of the future.  Looking back at my post, I sounded too harsh.  Sorry.  I was thinking out loud that Budgie didn't seem like such a good fit to me on top of Peppermint, but the idea's worth playing with for sure.   I remember playing with Deepin DE and Peppermint some time ago.  Yep, and that idea didn't work out at all!  Hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained.  I very much appreciated you posting about this.  Thank you.

No apologies needed. You were right on the mark. One should save their dislike for Windows, not whatever Linux distro you are looking at. Negativity just sucks.
