Hi naksuhd,

Being a very small team, we must first finish our work on the next release (and that work is progressing nicely at this time). But we never say never and perhaps (with a little more time and manpower) Team PeppermintOS will one day offer such an option.  ;)

Regards,

That's true, everything is fluid.

I have Debian installed on one of my drives and have taken a design queue from Peppermint to make it feel more like what I'm used to. I do need to add ICE over there though.

Admittedly that drive doesn't get much use beyond updates because I also use it for my system backup drive :)

Snaps are new so users need to let them mature and once the kinks and bugs are worked out of Snaps then Snaps may not be as bad as everyone thinks.

I've used Snaps on Ubuntu 20.04 and OK they are slow to load and open however once they are opened they work fine.

As for collecting personal user information these day's who doesn't, so get used to it as collecting user information ain't going away.

Many users are so concerned about Snaps collecting user information however have a Windows 10 user in their house and never think about Windows 10 information collecting.

Personally I no longer worry about user information collecting because if the OSs don't collect user information the websites and mobile phones will collect it.

I was in the military for many years and trust me if user information is wanted by whoever for whatever it can be gotten very easily without the user knowing.

Stay safe in these chaotic times we live in these days.


Life is good.  :)

Do you think there would be a real interest in  a Debian base?
I have my own personal opinions...lol but I am very curious ....

The usual reasons for ubuntu are
- Updated Kernel
- Updated packages

But with Flatpaks, Snaps and AppImages for your average user  that kind of fixes the package bit..... :-\
The kernel well.....that's always a debated topic I suppose...lol

Again just wondering......

Personally, I'd use a Debian edition instead of an Ubuntu one. However, I think I'm the exception as I don't mind older packages.

That said if we do support flatpacks, snaps et-al the point of old packages kinda goes away.

You're not the exception older software is problem free and works and secure based on my experience with Debian.

I've never had any issues with any Debian based Linux distro.  :)

I like the idea of being closer to the source distro.... ;)

Since I have become more Flatpak centric having more up to date software on Debian is no longer a problem.  I did really like Linux Mint Debian Edition and of course MX Linux.  If we had both an Ubuntu and a Debian base Peppermint we would rock the world..........

If it's not too much for the PP OS team, it would be nice to have a Debian based Peppermint OS. Some day. I think it would attract even more users to these shores.

I liked LMDE when I used it I just didn't care for the Cinnamon desktop.

I like MX Linux and use it on another of my Frankenstein desktops works well.  :)

Yep having a Debian based Peppermint Linux distro would be super duper maybe one day.  :)

Peppermint 9 works well and I'll stay with it until it reaches end of support.  :)
