Just an update, maybe useful to whomever might come across the same issue in low memory machines like mine: other than Chromium, I tried other browsers and I found out also Pale Moon is working fine on loading YouTube videos without killing my cpu.

Have to say goodbye to Firefox in this machine but it's fine.

right, it's the same picture but  thought there was some logo and some nice peppermints on this bg in the slideshow. Btw thanks, copied on desktop.

When I installed respin i saw a very nice picture as background of "Enjoy peppermint, and blablabla...."

Also I would like to get the one loaded after the shutdown.

So any way to get these two beautiful pictures? I'd like to use them as wallpapers  8)

Yes I clicked on the plugin in firefox and selected html5.... it reloads the page but the video has the same issues... If i want to switch back to Flash videos, after reloading the page I can't load the video: it says the browser doesn't recognise this format, please visit some page for html5 info.

Fresh install of P7 on my netbook. I've got youtube issues: videos are interrupting every 5-10 seconds, sometimes only audio works but the video freezes. I tried the same videos on Dailymotion and they work without any probs.

Also, I've noticed that my cpu doesnt seem to handle youtube videos: Task Manager says cpu 100% when I click on a youtube video (btw also on dailymotion cpu goes 95-98% usage but videos are fine). Ram usage bit less than 50%.

Right now switching to P7 for my old netbook. Since its just 1GB of RAM, should I go for the 32 bit iso?

If it's the same netbook as you mentioned in the original post, yes because it's a 32-bit machine.

yes it is, dumb question sorry :P Already running P7

You guys have much more experience than me, I understand you point about Debian (Ubuntu) based distros.

Btw after more or less 1 month of openSUSE as my second distro I came to the point that as a Linux noob I just want to stick to the apt-get world :D later when I will be more confident with Linux sys admin things I can migrate better to other distros.

So I just gave up with openSUSE: first, because for a noob looking how to fix issues is much easier to get Ubuntu solutions without asking (and waiting) to anybody. Second, some app aren't supported well (can't believe Gnome Boxes won't work on the last oS Leap on Gnome DE - it's a bug for everyone, not just me).
Last, yesterday turning on my laptop I find that all my settings are suddenly disappeared, also lost (probably not permanently) lot of files outside the root /home/user folder. Don't care how easy is to fix, it's something that should never happen even in the worst os ever, so I'm done with openSuse for now. Probably its one of the best distro ever, but not for me in this moment.

Peppermint 7: since its my first distro it gave me the impression that all Linux distros are solid as rock, fast and so on. Thats not true at all, there are few nice distros but P7 is the only one that never makes me spend time to fix non sense issues. Maybe I just have crap machines that get lucky with Linux thanks to Peppermint.

So for now I give up with all the other distros, in my very old netbook (1gb ram) gonna switch from Manjaro Netbook (nice, fast, but shut down is not working :D ) to P7 respin and hope it will work well like in my other laptop.

Happy New Year and Good Peppermint to everyone! :)

As a linux enthusiast noob, few days ago I decided to use a spare 4gb laptop to exploring other distros that I thought they had something better than P7. So, here's an overview of my brief journey outside the Peppermint world.

Before than Peppermint:
Lubuntu/Puppy:they look too ugly (imo) to enjoy them - I messed up the installation with Puppy; Lubuntu had big issues I never figure out to solve (example: no audio). I started to think Linux was a broken cheap os only usable from crazy kernel nerds.

Peppermint P7: love at the first sight, never a crash, Android Studio super fast, but Xfce gets bit boring after some time.

After P7:

Manjaro Netbook for my 1gb Acer AspireOne netbook: solid and fast as P7.

Ubuntu Mate 16.04 LTS: the most good looking distro for my standards. Everything looks beautiful, and the Mate environment keep it as a lightweight solution for 4gb laptop. Huge problem: the laptop is not able to boot on battery power, so if I forget the charger I can't even start working. The error is the same I have in Peppermint booting: radeon_acpi_init Error: Cannot find a backlight controller, though in P7 it's only a warning and theres no problem booting on battery power.
Since this problem was solved on Kernel 4.8, I switched to Ubuntu Mate 16.10 (kernel 8.0.x) - same story, no booting, goodbye Mate.

Fedora 25: the kernel 4.8.6 fixed my booting problem as expected, but my laptop had some problems with  slow wifi, and I didn't like how this distro looks, not mentioning some ugly fonts that I was lazy to change (annoyed by slow Internet).

OpenSuse Leap 42.2: my ram hated kde and I don't understand the point of kde, too many options and stuff I don't need, so I switched to Gnome: system is fast, stable, and after the first day, I got used to Gnome and start loving it. Since kernel is 4.4 I have the backlight warning, but likewise Peppermint it gives no probs on battery power.

So my fav distros are P7 and OpenSUSE.  After having seen a few of these distros I like P7 as an easy-going os for everything I need on my laptop (mobile/web development + net surfing).

Hopefully this review may be interesting for some other noob out there.  :)
