Would Ubuntu 19.04 be a good one?

Depends on you system.

What are your system specs.

Ubuntu 19.04 is resource intensive and requires a graphics card capable of running the gnome 3 desktop and if not up to the task of doing so will load the processor down heavily.

Regarding your speedy boot time: is that documented as a how-to? I'd be curious to see how reasonable that would be for the average user, or what downsides there are (features eliminated?). There must be some reason Peppermint isn't configured that way out of the box? Some kind of downside?

There is usually always going to be some type of a downside when disabling features of an OS to increase performance or for whatever the reason may be based on my own personal experience with doing such.

I never understood the preoccupation with boot times as I power on my computer when I wake up and then start the coffee pot and by the time I'm back to my computer it is ready to go.

(Part of me would like more lean, like Puppy or Antix. But... the more I play with those two... I don't believe I have the passion for fiddling with things at that level.  I always *want* to be a fiddler, that natural ability. But, when faced with actually doing it... I always find I like things to be more polished, less fiddling. Peppermint's right in that goldilocks zone for me. It's plain in a Shaker-style[1] aesthetic sense; elegantly plain. Not in a hobbyist unfinished sense.).


Linux distros such as Antix and Puppy are not for everyone as these Linux distros do come with a slight learning curve.

Any user of Antix or Puppy must be willing to learn the necessary how to skills of Antix and
so as to have an enjoyable first experience with them. 

Antix and Puppy are Linux distros where a user must be willing to dive in and get their hands dirty.

Peppermint on the other hand installs and updates and works on most computers OOTB with minimal tweaks / tuning if any at all from my user experience.  :)  8)

Thanks for the welcome perknh.

Hey az2020,

I've been using Peppermint Linux since the days of Peppermint 7 and have found it to work well on the computers I've installed it on.

All of my computers have Core 2 Duo processors and 4.0GB of ram and mechanical hard drives and work well using Peppermint.

Give it a try I think you will find it works very well.

I also use Antix 17.4.1 Helen Keller.
