Welcome to the forum  :D

There really is something special about the care that is taken when building each version of Peppermint.

You've got some interesting questions there, wish I could answer them. I personally hate having to format and re-install.

Hi there, that's an interesting question. Works is a VERY VERY old program. Forgive me for asking this, but is it Works for DOS or Windows? If you know the version number that will help.

Send me a PM, then I will give you my email address. If you email me a file I am willing to try to see what can be done.

LibreOffice is completely different to Office 365, it looks more like Office did before the ribbon menu. If you can stand the dated look it should be OK for most people.

If Microsoft is a must, you can use a web based version of Word, Excel or PowerPoint. That will look and feel more like Office 365, although it is very limited.

It is great to know that Peppermint will live on. I have tried various Linux flavours over the years, kept coming back to Peppermint because of the community.

Any chance we can build a version for Raspberry Pi?  8)

So sorry to hear that Mark is gone, he was always so friendly and helpful.
Having people like him here is one of the main reasons that I've basically stuck with Peppermint since the days of Peppermint ICE.

He will be missed, he touched all of our lives. Condolences to the family.

Welcome, I've tried different distros and stopped hopping when I found Peppermint.

Also started out with a netbook, good times.

It's light and fast. Two things I can't say of any Microsoft OS.

Welcome Fred.justFred!

Also started using Linux from an EeePC! Then I got a Lenovo S10e netbook. Haven't seen a netbook for sale (locally in ages).

Hope you enjoy the forum!

I would try P10 on your machine, but I would not be very hopeful.

Thanks for sharing, I want to get one within the next few months.

Not sure if I need to do anything special to it for it to not wear out quicker than normal.

Welcome Dave!

Peppermint can be whatever you need it to be, cloud based with Ice or install your apps locally.

Without badmouthing Mint, can I ask what made you consider Peppermint?

To judge a distro on theme alone does not make sense. It is incredibly easy to customize, and you should customize it if YOU do not like it.

I still believe that Peppermint is the best (based on Ubuntu) distro out there. Easy to use, to add apps and to customize.

From a Linux perspective there isn't a feature I can think of that I don't have access to.

Haters and Trolls need to find stuff to hate on.

So I managed to delete the partition Peppermint 8 was on, chose "Something else" during install and preserved my dual boot.

Weird thing, the UCT Ubuntu server (the server in Cape Town, South Africa) is the slowest I have seen to date. It took 15 minutes to download 15 MB of updates. It took longer to download the updates, than it did to install Peppermint 10.

Changed to a different server after install and much better now.

Thanks very much for the conky tutorial. I really wanted to try it out, but it seemed a little scary until I read this.

I'm new to linux so this really helped me out  ;D
Glad you liked it, Conky can be as intricate or simple as you want it to be. There is so much you can do with it, that I only scratch the surface of what is possible really.

Thank you for being patient, I've been very sick these past few days. Here is the output reuqested:

sudo fdisk -l
