Decent listing of OS's and small write up on them.  Thought it was worth posting here.

Thanks for the list but I don't care much for it - a thrown together hotch potch list - just to create something for print

"Peppermint OS : Distribution based on Lubuntu, an Ubuntu derivative, with the LXDE desktop environment. It is characterized mainly by being web-oriented and prepared to use web apps as if they were native applications, something very similar to what we can see in projects like Chrome OS."

Seriously - I doubt he has even looked at Peppermint OS.

Next...

Aaaaaaaaaaah  >:(, that damn web based classification strikes again.  Before people write "reviews", why don't they contact the developers and ask questions?  It'll eliminate the guesswork and present the true nature of the distro being reviewed.  Review like this, are simply lazy and sloppy journalism :(!
