[Solved] Peppermint 9 vs Peppermint 10

Hello forums,

I'm curious if there is any advantage of using Peppermint 10 over Peppermint 9.

Thanks.

Bragging rights ??  ;D

Seriously, not that much of an advantage, although there are a few things that you might prefer. But rather than list them here just go to this page to read the changes.

BTW, you might prefer to wait a little bit longer because rumor has it that Peppermint 10.5 (not the official name -- actually it will probably be called Peppermint 10 Respin or something similar) will soon be released !!  ;)

Hello Slim Fatz,

Cool sounds like like good advice.

I'm using Peppermint 9 Respin now and it works great.


Thanks.

Hello forums,

Probably not the answer you're looking for, but...

The advantage for me is - P10 "kicks the can down the road," so to speak. When a new ver is released, it extends machine support for x-amount of years. I currently have 'daily drivers' running on top of P7, P9, and P10. 

Really, I don't feel a need to upgrade Peppermint, until it quits doing what I need it to do - for instance, when I can't update my browsers, because the kernel or depends are too old.

P7 will be the next to go. When that happens, I'll upgrade it to P10, P11, P12 or whatevs...  ;)

Hello VinDSL,


Peppermint 9 and Peppermint 10 are both 18.04 based so can kicking down the road should be the same imo.

Yeah I'm not much into jumping into the latest release unless there is something new and  I really need it.

One of the things I like about Peppermint is that it pretty much from release to end doesn't change.  8)

I don't believe I've ever run an OS Linux or Windows where I couldn't update to a current browser.  :-\

Perhaps I'll take Slim Fatz advice and wait for Peppermint 10 Respin and install it on a different desktop.  :)


Thanks

Or if you're already on PM9 you might wanna read this
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,8442.0.html

I wouldn't really suggest anyone nuke and pave a working PM9 to install PM10 .. just manually upgrade it if you want.

The only time I'd suggest PM10 over PM9 is if you're nuking and paving for some other reason anyway.

Hello PCNetSpec,


I had seen that how to post whilst grazing the forum.

Personally I see no need for moving from Peppermint 9 to Peppermint 10 unless Peppermint 10 is more secure due to the HWE Stack Kernel.

Peppermint 9 Respin is running great on my 12 year old desktop and I was just curious if Peppermint 10 offered any advantage over Peppermint 9 and that was my only reason.

I'll just keep Peppermint 9 as it's working good and I like staying with a working Linux Distro.  :)


Thanks

Thanks to everyone.

Welcome.

Incidentally, last night I updated the kernel in my 'Road Warrior' lappy => Linux 5.2.x

Peppermint 7 lives, to fight another day  ;D

You updated Peppermint 7 to the linux-5-2-kernel.

How does everything run since Peppermint 7 I believe is 16.04 Xenial based and an older kernel.

I've only been running PM7 on top of Linux 5.2.11  for 24 hrs, but no complaints, so far.

11.8 second boot, UEFI/Secure Boot enabled, triple-booted with W10 (stable & skip ahead) and it's flying...

PM7 / Linux 5.2.11  By The Numbers
[close]

PM7 is still perfectly usable; and, my professional career lives or dies by this lappy  ;)

Still my favourite Peppermint wallpaper of all time :)

Dunno why .. possibly just the pinky/peach tone to the sunset (and the contrast of the bright red rounded housebrick) kinda lifts the soul
(hot damn, got all mushy/poetic there for a sec)
