Remember, we do offer a nice assortment of Meta Packages that can boost a base Peppermint installation very quickly and effectively

Welcome to Peppermint! Ditching Windoze and Mac out of pure frustration was how we started this open source project. Everyone is welcome here so make sure you ask questions.

Artwork, Themes, and Icons / Re: Official Peppermint Artwork Pack
« on: November 23, 2014, 11:28:56 am »
I'd *think* that should be fine (as long as it doesn't attempt to claim or give the impression it's an officially sanctioned site), but best to wait till either Shane or Kendall respond.
(which hopefully will be soon)

As previously mentioned, that's just my personal "take" on things .. I'm not one of the copyright holders ;)

Mark is exactly 100% spot on. Please use the Peppermint artwork as long as you are not making attempts to misrepresent yourself as affiliated officially with Peppermint, misrepresent your entity as the owners and/or creators of the Peppermint software or the company - Peppermint OS, LLC. Also, you may not sell or distribute Peppermint OS, any version,  without expressed written consent.

Otherwise, use the Peppermint artwork however you want!! Feel free to contact me directly if you need further clarification or have questions

Kindest regards

Shane

« on: June 23, 2014, 05:11:28 pm »
Peppermint Five is now available: http://peppermintos.com

Thanks to everyone involved in making Peppermint Five possible. I can't say enough about the entire Peppermint team and the Beta testing group who were fantastic as always. Please download Peppermint Five and share it with everyone you know

The Official Press Release:

Peppermint OS LLC is excited to announce the launch of our latest operating system Peppermint Five. Lightweight and designed for speed, Peppermint Five delivers on that promise whether using software on your desktop, online, or using cloud based apps.

Kendall Weaver, Chief Technical Officer of Peppermint, states, “Initially, Peppermint One was designed out of our desire for an operating system optimized for working online. Each year since then, we have improved on it, and we are very excited about new and improved features in Peppermint Five.”

Shane Remington Chief Operating Officer of Peppermint, adds, “With this release we are getting ready for the future. The technology landscape is constantly changing, and we are always responding to meet our user’s needs. We are 100% driven to deliver an OS that is fast, secure, and available everywhere, Peppermint Five is another step in that direction.”

Peppermint Five Highlights

- Peppermint Five is built on a Long Term Support (LTS) code base, Ubuntu 14.04. The upstream code base will receive updates for five years.
- Peppermint Ice is our in house built SSB manager, it has been rewritten from scratch and is now significantly more stable and is more feature rich than past versions. The key new feature is that it now supports both Chrome and Chromium as a backend.
- Peppermint Control Center is our new settings app which provides an intuitive interface to customize and manage your workspaces, window behavior, keyboard and pointer settings, keyboard shortcuts and more.
- We’ve fixed a number of upstream bugs present in Lubuntu, the specific project we fork from. Most notable among these are that the network manager applet starts properly.
- Peppermint-Light is our new window manager and widget theme designed to offer a clean and relatively flat look and feel.
- In previous iterations of Peppermint OS we used Alsa for sound. Our users asked for a more robust audio backend with more options and more user-friendly, Peppermint Five delivers with PulseAudio.

We invite you to compare Peppermint to other operating systems, we are confident you will be impressed. To take Peppermint Five out for a test drive, visit our website at peppermintos.com where you can download it for free. If you need help installing Peppermint Five, or have any questions about using it, we have a second-to-none user support team at forum.peppermintos.com.

Just a note to all interested:  International shipping has just about tripled from the USA. So, when you see that getting a USB stick that weighs as much as a bottle cap costs $30 USD to Europe.... please don't blame us. That's what they are charging us.  Somewhere down the road, and we hope for it in the future, we'll have a distribution point in Europe and it won't be so expensive.

Thanks to you all for understanding. The cost of shipping is a major frustration point for us all here in the US

Honestly, it would be darn near impossible to produce Peppermint and maintain all the other aspects of the project if it wasn't for PCNetSpec's dedication to this support forum, his contributions to the OS, and his willingness to help us safeguard all other places where Peppermint maintains a presence. He is clearly an MVP around here

And I can't say enough about all the mods here at the support forum. You all make this an amazing place to gain assistance and learn. The best mod team ever.
