Why/how have you got red text in neofetch in Peppermint 10 .. I'd made it white in 10
(I think it looks better in white, once you give it a chance and get used to it .. it doesn't draw attention away from the ASCII logo)

BTW, both neofetch and screenfetch have accepted the new ASCII artwork upstream .. so we won't need to host them beyond Peppermint 10.

Okay, I updated the pic.

Does that look more like it?   8)

Heil, mein Führer!

I judge that most ppl would assume that an established distro would become bloated and slow, as time marches on, and new features are added. Not so, with Peppermint Linux OS. It's as slim and fast as ever.

So, yes, it's a race to the bottom, here in upside-down fun world.

161 MiB sitting at the desktop ain't bad...   :)

Played around with the netbook, for a couple of hours today.

Knocked the usage down to 150 MiB  :o





When I first did the OEM install, it was taking 150-ish seconds for a cold boot. I was rather disappointed.

After a little tweaking, I got boot times down to 50-ish seconds. Still nothing to write home about...

Now, after some major haxoring, it boots in under 25 seconds - roughly the same as winders XP.

It's MUCH more lively and responsive now, and a pleasure to use. YaY Team Peppermint!  :)

I thought VinDSL would get a kick out of my "minimal" Debian install running i3 and still using more ram

A few old posts on that the old Toshiba NB505 which sounds like it's similarly spec to your ASUS Eee PC

@pin, I have never seen a system with so few packages. You're gonna make a minimalist Arch user somewhere very sad. :D

Want an interesting bit of context here .. my ReadyNAS uses more than VinDSL and Josephd's Peppermint installs.
(and that doesn't run a DE, just a webUI)

Haven't really had time to haxor, as VinDSL puts it... but will do a bit of pondering on the new mini-note as we've decided to keep it. Currently dual booting Win10 & PX

@josephd  :D
Its very minimal, but 172 pkg is not the whole truth. All BSDs include xorg, xterm, vi, wpa_supplicant, dhcpcd and so on, in the base system. Those are then looked upon as part of the OS and not counted as they are not in userland.
My system is very minimal anyway, I'm using 2.7GB of disk space.

@VinDSL  ::)
Hmm...

My router runs *nix in a few MB .. does that count ?

Actually, I think I have an old mp3 player somewhere......
