So is that a Yay or a Nay to posting a comment which would read

"Just a shame you showed a screen shot from Peppermint 3 and got virtually every default application wrong. It would have helped if you did your homework before posting such articles."

One thing I did find interesting though .. it highlights (at least to me) how much we've changed over the years...

I'm not saying that's a good or bad thing (I can't speak for everyone), just that it's a fact :)

I'm not actually THAT fussed about it Zeb, I was pointing it out more for the humour (and a generalised poke at the way advertising has killed accuracy of the press) .. something tells me their Linux section is little read anyway.

I for one have never heard anyone say, hey I'm wondering what distro to try next .. must visit softpedia :)



Hiya Ghosty, welcome to the forum my mate :)

I'd kinda have to agree with Zeb, it's in English, and we read left --> right, the damage is done well before you get to the 'new' part. But really my point is really not about damage to us (which I doubt it does), as much as an obligation to their readers and advertisers. The entire thing was structured so for the least amount of work they could get the search engines interested (I found it by googling "Peppermint 10 Review"), to me it just screams "we don't care about readers, our primary goal is adding 'content' to build advertising space around" .. between that lazy rubbish, clickbait, and agenda driven political bias, sadly the way the press have pretty much all gone lately thanks to advertising money detracting from accuracy .. articles are no longer written with the reader in mind :(

If tomorrow we decided to get rid of lazy/politically biased/'fake'/opinion dressed as fact/advert driven news .. I'm afraid there'd be none left. What ever happened to simply reporting accurate facts and letting the user create their own 'truth'.

Okay soap boxing over :))

New Users / Question about Peppermint EOL & which version for my old laptop
« Last post by bartram81 on May 22, 2019, 05:25:08 am »
Hey guys,
I've used Peppermint 2 OS on an old Dell Inspiron laptop and found it very fast, intuitive and hassle-free. It was a dual-boot setup w/ Windows 7. Since Microsoft is ending support for Win7 in 2020 I'm thinking of re-installing Peppermint again. Maybe try a newer version. I just want to make sure I choose the right one. I would be happy to continue using Peppermint 2 on this laptop if it's still safe to use since I have no qualms w/ it. But I'm just wondering if this is unwise since Linux distros eventually go obsolete once the Linux kernel stops being supported.

This laptop gets lots of online use by other people in my home so I need something that is safe and fast (I dont have the laptop specs at hand right now but its 32-bit and very slow, Vista/Win7 run very slow on it). Are older peppermint versions still supported? Are they still safe to use online? Is 2 still okay or should I use another version? Let me know. Thanks.

Hi Ghost 76,

Welcome to the forums  :)

ABSOLUTELY  no excuse for shoddy reporting, whether they link to the Release Notes or not - people will simply read that review and make an assumption based on the review and screenshot.

I am now thinking we have the right to ask them to take it down as it is SO BLATANTLY WRONG

Regards Zeb...

Lazy reporting, yes for not updating the main article. However they do link to a changelog for Peppermint 10 detailing the actual current software etc. It's right there under 'What's new in Peppermint 10'

add the nvidia ppa and run an update and then install 430 from additional drivers
