Lots of great points in this thread, many that I hadn't even considered. Luckily PM7 (as far as I have seen) received a lot of positive reviews in the YouTube community, so even a little bit of research on the prospective user's part will lead them to those. Perhaps a way to expand upon the benefits of PM7 and Peppermint in general is to highlight those reviews, either through the main website or Distrowatch? I'm not even sure if the Peppermint devs have access to the Distrowatch stuff, just a suggestion though.

I personally use PrivateInternetAcess. No logs, has a GUI, offers SOCKS5, and you can even pay with gift cards.

I don't necessarily torrent or anything, I'm just rather paranoid and feel comfortable using one. Like a safety blanket.

Welcome to the forum.  :)

Solar Power? A new linux distro? or Solar panel refers to a panel designed to absorb the sun's rays as a source of energy for generating electricity or heating?

Yep, solar like photovoltaics.  :)

Hey Peppermint community!

For the past few months I have been slowly adding to my van to make it liveable. I have a bed, storage, 6 gallons of water, and curtains. Next I am thinking about power. Does anyone have experience with solar power? I'd love to hear any tips or feedback, anything you've learned.

Right now I'm still thinking about whether I want static solar panels mounted on the top or panels that I can put out and move around. If I had static solar panels they could passively charge all day, but that means I'd have to park my van in the sun.

You might have to reduce the size of the Windows partition and then move it to your Peppermint partition. You won't be able to do this while booted up into PM7, but you can do it from a live version of PM7. Use GParted like VinDSL has in the screenshot, and you should just be able to "click and drag". GUI can be a savior when still figuring things out.

Welcome to the forum!

Yes you will be able to do this. It will give you the option to do so in the installer. Usually this is all you need to do and everything will go smoothly, but on the off chance that something goes wrong I suggest that you backup any important data before installing PM7.

Yeah, I think it's some kind of joke. Like Murray said, there was another user with similar complaints and a similar writing style. Maybe a Peppermint hater (if that exists). Regardless, no problems can be solved if there is no cooperation, we've done our part.

However, my point about OSX and Linux is still valid. Steam works for both.  Given an option of being able to run some of their libraries of games VS being able to run none of it is a no brainer for gamers.  We want games.  We will have games.  Also, a number of Steam games work with WINE.  Alienating gamers, probably M$'s number one customers, is just plain stupid.

Right now, there is no reason for Windows gamers (or software users in general) to switch, nor is there a reason for developers to support Linux.  Doing away with Win32 would provide both, so M$ would just be cutting their own legs off if they did it.  Not that anything they do surprises me, but they would have to be the biggest morons on the planet to do away with Win32.

Hear hear!

Hey, I have the Galaxy S3 :) It is indeed worthy of an upgrade.

I agree it's risky to root a phone. I plan on playing around with that on my S3 once my new phone comes, so I'm not relying on it if I do brick it.
