Yeah I saw that.

One of the less popular Ubuntu based distribution, Peppermint OS has announced

Unfortunate turn of phrase .. I know what he/she *meant* (less well know), but it reads as "least liked" ::)

Yes, poor choice of words.  Perhaps "lesser known" or "less hyped about" would have been a better choice.

Plus, there should be an "s" on distribution.  It should read: One of the lesser known Ubuntu based distributions.

Yes, I agree.  I would have preferred that that sentence had been worded differently too.  The final link within this notice, or very short article, goes right to PCNetSpec's own writing when you click onto the very final word or the article --here.

PCNetSpec's own page may generate some interest with Peppermint 6 for It's F.O.S.S. readers.
