The Dropbox integration for Nemo as well. I don't use Dropbox so I've just removed that one.

Ah, I knew there was something else that I was forgetting.  Indeed, that is proprietary.  Funny, I remove both, but not due to them being proprietary, just because I don't use them.

Are you saying that the peppermint we download by default contains proprietary software?

Yep, it sure does.  Flash plugin.  I don't remember if there's anything else in the default package that's proprietary, but that definitely is.

SHA256SUMs are available on the Peppermint OS main page.

https://peppermintos.com/

Click on either of the download buttons to bring up a small window with the download links, as well as MD5SUM and SHA256SUM for that architecture.

I think the rest of us were just content to ignore it because the thought of Microsoft procreating is shudder inducing.  **shudders**

It's not even what I'd  call a lag, at least not on my desktop.  There's a half second to a second delay when I hit the menu button after first booting up the system.  Afterwards, it's fine, it pops up instantly.  On less powerful computers, such as my laptop, it's more noticeable.

There should be links to the Ubuntu source code on the Ubuntu website.  Though, more specifically, I think Peppermint is based on the Lubuntu source code.  It's available on the Lubuntu website.  As for how exactly the OS is built, only one man knows for sure.

Hi all

I think he wants the Peppermint source code so he can build/compile/create his own peppermint?

Regards Zeb...

Yeah, I think you're right.  I was alerted to this post via e-mail (because it's from a new user)  so I didn't pay attention to the thread title.  :-[

I can confirm the menu lag on the Whisker Menu.  It lags for a second or two after I first boot up, but it's fine after that.

What do you mean by "sources?"  Download links?  Source code?

I know, you need Windows for work.  Otherwise, I know you wouldn't run it.

11
One of those looks much better than the other.  ;)

12
If that was a personal choice, but a lot of us will be bound to Windows for working etc.

I know.  At least that's a valid reason, unlike the excuses you typically see from people not bound to Windows by their jobs.

It is a joke. They (debian users) see themselves as our superiors. It is their quip to show contempt of Ubuntu users.

They're still just salty because they had the most user friendly Linux distribution around until Ubuntu came along and was all like, "Look, this doesn't have to be a pain in the butt."  ;)

All the more reason for people to go fully Linux and never look back.

Yeah, using "yum" felt like I was going for a snack.  :D
