I'm back
« on: December 22, 2019, 09:43:55 am »
After watching English Bob's excellent videos on pep10 respin, I decided to give it another try. I use mainly xenialpup and bionicpup on my desktop computers. For me they are fast and simple.

My computers are refurbished hp8000 sff models. The small ones from around 2008. They have 4 GB of RAM.  One thing I will most likely do is reboot into openbox and play around there with tint2 etc... knowing  I can always log back into peppermint. I also love i3 so I will try that out as well.

Thanks Mark and the rest of the team for a gem of an Ubuntu based distro!!!

Welcome back rmcellig.

Pretty generic description of the computers.

I'm curious as to the processors and graphics card or integrated graphics adapter,  you've already mentioned using 4.0GB of ram.

I'm not in front of them at the moment.  I know they are business grade computers that I bought for a good price a few years ago. Mine are the smallest ones.  I know they came in different  sizes. For my needs they are perfect.

I've got an old HP Office type desktop from 2007 a curb find that has a core 2 duo processor and Intel integrated graphics adapter and 4.0GB DDR2 ram and runs like a bat out of hell with Peppermint 9 Respin-2 on it.

It's well made seems to be a good desktop computer.
