Honorable mention for Best Linux Distro for 2019

I came across this and had to share.
It is an honorable mention but positive none the less.

Thanks for posting this, PeppermintFan.

It's funny, I've been playing with some the aforementioned distros listed in the article.

For whatever reason, probably hardware, i can't get Manjaro's 18.1 “Juhraya”  installed to my laptop*, and Fedora's Workstation 31 is a heavy installation too -- even missing color backgrounds.  I recently tried Pop!_OS too.  It really could use Ubiquity.  Installing Pop!_OS is not like installing Peppermint.  It may decide for you what your computer's name will be.  What nerve! ;D

IMO, Mint should be on this list.  And, yeah, definitely Ubuntu* and Peppermint belongs on this list too. :)



*  Manjaro appears to have lost is Deepin community edition. :-\

* * Ubuntu has a survey out.  I took it and mentioned it could use a few popular tools found in Peppermint and Mint.  Also, IMO, it should also have easier access to administrator privileges for the rare times when a user needs them. ;)
[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)

We have always had the tag for old hardware, but we are good for any hardware. I'm going to invest in one of these.

It can have any Linux Distro installed and releases in March. Imagine the Pep on this? It'll fly along.

Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

Nice clatterfordslim .. I'm interested to hear how you get on with that Atari VCS. Any problems installing please let me know and we'll see if we can figure it out between us :)

As it stands it can install any Linux Distro, as well as the main one that's on board. So yeah definitely let you know.  ;D
