Maybe it's just my take on things
« on: September 25, 2019, 04:26:02 pm »
I have been observing this forum as well as others long before joining this one a few days ago.

I notice that the other forums have much more activity with many problems being expressed.

Here in the Peppermint Forums, there appears to be much less activity, making me believe i chose the best OS to run as my daily driver.

Peppermint does not appear to have as many "problems" as the others do.

To me that means a GREAT testimonial to a well thought out OS that is not near as "problem plagued" as other more "popular" and well known OS's appear to be.

GREAT WORK MARK AND TEAM.

(Is there a list of the other Team Members somewhere?)

3 cheers,--- Huzzah, Huzzah, Huzzah.

Warm Regards to all,

The Omen

Now, that was an easy question  :D
Here, https://peppermintos.com/2019/05/a-big-thank-you-to-the-peppermint-10-team/

Although, in my mind PCNetSpec does nearly all of it anyway  ;D

Thank-you pin, i've just bookmarked it in my browser for later reading since it's past my bedtime now, lol.

I really can't believe how nice and welcoming everyone has been to me here.

First time on any forum and this is unexpected.
 
you have all been so nice.

Regards,

The Omen

Thank you for your kind words The Omen,

It does mean a lot to us to know we are appreciated.

I also agree with Pin, that without PCNetSpec's (Mark's) leadership and guidance Peppermint would not be as good as it is.

I have been posting on this forum on my night shifts this week and the dedication Mark puts in, he was still answering questions at 3am British Time on Wednesday Morning. He deserves an accolade or something, because no matter what the question, he will move heaven and earth to help you. Never before have I had so much fun on a forum as I do on this one. From the Dizzy egg men to the fantastic community here, this forum takes you away from  real life for a while and I absolutely love it. Not just this forum, but Peppermint OS is just so damn addictive. All the OSES I have installed over the years I have to come back to Peppermint.  ;D
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

Thank You Mark. :)

Have a snack or a bite of food and a couple of drinks and go to bed and get some rest / sleep. ;)

I had to look   "accolade" up  ??? because where I live we call it wine / booze / alcohol / beer so I wasn't familiar with this word.

Peppermint OS is just so damn addictive. All the OSES I have installed over the years I have to come back to Peppermint.  ;D
Peppermint is damn hard to beat along with the forum and it's members and Peppermint's team members who devote their time to help us users who can be a PITA at times.  ;D

So a big Thanks to all involved.  :)

 Or it could be that there are only 20 of us who use Peppermint. ;D

Some things in life are just too good to share. ;)

Omen,

The Pepp team and followers are the main reason Pepp is my distro of choice.  I often tease Mark with asking him if he ever sleeps.  I'm actually in the process of making a video about the Forum and the team.  From the get go this place has been warm and welcoming.

Welcome to the best place on the internet..........  :D

Welcome Aboard @The Omen! While I use Peppermint exclusively mostly because everthing just works, the friendliness of this forum is a bonus and a joy. While we have placeholder accounts on FB, MeWe & deh twttrs, there's no real community feeling in those places. True, we redirect folks to come here if they have tech related questions. But even so, there's no there out there

peppermints a solid distro, not unlike other distros you have to fight all the time for it to work.
