An outstanding Peppermint 9 review
« on: August 03, 2018, 10:59:23 pm »
Ran across this review on YouTube from LinuxNetwork.  One of the better ones I have seen.

Thanks!

Good review.

I have a hard time listening to AI generated voice-based audio too, as well as any number of human vocal cord based accents. In cases like this, I simply mute the audio and invoke the close captioning [CC] option, and read the text output.

As a matter of fact, I often find it amusing to read what one AI assistant thinks the other AI assistant is saying.

Yeah it's a great review.  The person/AI who created it, actually gets what the Peppermint project is all about and appreciates what is being done.  The only bad thing about it is the AI voice - aaaaaaaah  >:(.  It's really unfortunate because all in all, it's the best review we've had - go figure  ::).

Kinda easy to appear to "get" Peppermint, when you're pretty much just using a text-to-speech engine to repeat this review verbatim:
https://www.linuxinsider.com/story/85421.html
and bits from our release announcement ;)

[EDIT]

I'd agree the original article/review was generally pretty good, but unless it's by the same guy that YT video is just lazy I'm afraid :)

[EDIT2]

And C'mon reviewers, we changed the logo AGES ago .. keep up ::)
(heck even the article you copied [?] had the right logo)

[EDIT3]

Can you tell I'm fed up with lazy reporting that just rehashes the same old drivel with no effort and/or attempt to get in touch and ask. I'll repeat again only ONE reviewer/article writer has EVER been in touch to ask about our goals and direction .. and that was this one (which isn't really a "review"):
http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/an-interview-with-peppermint-ceo-mark-greaves

I'll only be happy when reviewers seek information from the horses mouth rather than old articles and opinion.

Unless of course they lord us with praise, and get everything right out of pure luck .. in which case I might let them off :))
