I installed Peppermint 5 with the command option below.

Code: [Select]
forcepae -- forcepae
All went well. Fully updated and working with usage figures of 2% CPU and 129MB RAM. Impressive :-)

Although, if there are no security concerns then I think I will stick with Peppermint 3. It just feels that bit snappier, and the usage figures of 2% CPU and 112MB RAM seem to back that up .

A useful resource for others is

Now, when you say "unofficially supported until April 2017" what exactly does that mean?

I have just installed Peppermint 2 on an old IBM ThinkPad R50 from an old cd I had.
Once I installed all the updates it is now sitting at version 3.
Everything seems to be working fine.
Basically, is Peppermint 3 still supported and for how long?
