Well.... all.....I left..... :(
« on: June 05, 2019, 08:09:25 am »
Good evening all,
I been contemplating how to say I left peppermint... :(  I been running peppermint since 7
Basically I had a few HDD's crash.. and I was at a cross roads....either reinstall Pep...9R at the time or hop closer to Debian...... :o

So I wrote all the things that irk me about Pep. and it was really short..
1. VLC was gone
2. ICE's pre installed links
Now I know I  can configure all this after install. .
3. Its too good....

My personal preference when  I decide to hop is... I hop....everything completely.
I am completely off pep now  ???

I know right.....what.....lol

So, where did I go.......debian....more specially the debian  net-install
It was not easy....let me say that... but it did fullfill that linux challenge I was looking for.
Since basically it comes with literally nothing and it does meet the very basic baseline I was looking for.

I did bring ICE with me though....never letting that go ;)

But the reason for this post is I just wanted to say thanks!! of all the linux communities I have participated in  this is the best. Pep is great and will always  be great. I left not because of any specific reason.  I just had this itch to get closer to the debian distro... I originally started there and I have always felt the need to get back to it.

All in all I will  keep watching you as you grow through  the years.  Keep up the good work!

Thanks again.   -- Grafiksinc

Just because you're using Debian doesn't mean you can't hang out with us in the Peppermint community. We're a stronger community when we don't all agree on every package and setup. Personally, I love the fragmentation everyone seems to write those cliickbait articles about.

Like you don't use Peppermint exclusively. Here's a rundown of my current systems.

Desktop
  • Peppermint 10
  • Debian Stable
  • Trisquel 8

Laptop
  • Pop OS 19.04

Netbook
  • Debain + i3 and LXDE

What josephd said :)

Specially the bit about "so called" fragmentation .. which I don't see as "fragmentation" as much as a strength of development model.

That would be cool, always good to hear where other distros may be doing something better/worse and where we may be able to improve (within our guiding ethos of course) :)

Well its been about nearly three months on Debian and its been good to me....
PPA's where such a convenience, at a times...LOL  but none the less I am content with Buster.. I like it.
I cant say I can offer any new ideas.....its like stepping back in time a bit but its cool....

I know everyone is different but with vanilla XFCE with thunar is a good fit for me.
That's about it. nothing extravagant but  yeah its Debian LOL  ;)

@grafiksinc: It isn't really a big switch.

I'm using Debian Buster and Peppermint 10, and while they look and behave almost the same, there are some subtle differences.

If I ever try something that is really different, it will either be OpenSuse or vanilla Arch, mainly for the learning experience. But so far, nothing that was not based on Debian or Ubuntu lasted longer than a week on any of my computers. ;)

But how can you live without our theming ?

Someone suggested on YT the other day that distros should satisfy a necessary, though possibly niche function (I do have to wonder though who gets to choose what equates to 'necessary' in that position ?) .. well I've decided one of our 'necessary niche functions' is to offer soothing red/white/dark-grey sanctuary in the wind swept desert of blue/grey (and the occasional green/grey) eye grit :))

[semi-sarcasm for those that may miss it ;)]
