the duplication thing ive noticed myself but i like it as it gives me a choice on how to do things, as for the rest i wouldnt know a whole load about. the software stores i wouldnt really bother with anyway as i install mostly via synaptc. his attitude is a bit arrogant but pep isnt perfect, ive had my own issues as you well know.

Too many flaws in this review to answer them all

If he did even a modicum of research, instead of making "general" sweeping statements he could have answered some of his own questions.

mint software is there to help install Flatpaks

gnome software is there to help install snaps

synaptic is there on every ubuntu os

If he opened the Ice app first he would have found an easy way to remove the installed Ice SSB's

if he wants anything other than nano, install it.   Again, do your research, read about the Peppermint ethos of not installing software by default.  That is the users choice.

file permission I will leave to more technically minded members of the community to check

I cannot remember a single time where any forum member has been rude or arrogant that has been left unchecked.  The Peppermint Community is 2nd to none. IMHO.

I feel like doing a review video of this video, but you know you will always get the odd idiot, who does not read up before installing a operating system. All they do is download it install it and when things are not working out in their favor, they moan and gripe. This video has bugged the hell out of me. This bloke has not got a clue and as for the 777 root thing I also have no idea what he's talking about, is there a flaw? Or is he just trying to rile our backs up? Is Mark still on holiday? This guy has no clue yes he was typing a few commands in a terminal whoop whoop, to make it look like he knew what he was doing. Who is to say that he did not put that root thing in himself? I was extremely annoyed when he said that the Forum was not friendly. He's obviously got it in for Linux as a whole though. I won't do a video, but will always be protective of Peppermint when someone who has not got a Danny La Rue (Clue) about what they are on about? If that is all this guy can muster out of the air, then he obviously does not know how wonderful life is when you're part of a team of good, friendly people, who love to help each other.  :)
Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)

We need Marks view on this video. And yes what the hell is permission 777? And the forum unfriendly? It's very friendly and helpful too. He's wrong about ice. I removed almost everything and no icons are left in the Menu. He must have done something wrong I guess.

Windrose,  EB is just pointing out a YouTube video he found - he did not make it.  Go watch the video in YouTube and not in here.  You will see who made it.

@zebedeeboss: How about the 777 security issue? That seems to be significant or is it not?

Okay thanks Zeb. I asked Mitchell Valentino and Drumpf_4_All about 777 and waiting for them to answer.

777 Everyone can read write and execute the file

Anything else, lets wait on PcNetSpec or VinDSL before we speculate further what it means

I know Zeb I already googled it. I'm especailly curious what Drumpf_4_All has to answer because he call's the Pepp dev team a bunch of amateurs. And I think they are not.

This guy is full of bullstuff !! the program gnome-desktop-item-edit can, of course (given permissions 777) be run by anyone, but you cannot save any changes to the file that you have opened unless you start the program with sudo ... so ... bullstuff;)

An idiot trying to impress neophytes.  ::)
