Linux Distributions

Peppermint OS – bare-bones Linux distro

Peppermint OS seeks to provide a minimalist desktop, giving the individual the choice of what they want to install, beyond a few base tools and custom themes and icon sets.

The distro features the Peppermint Hub, a location that is used to be the launching point for common XFCE settings as well as other system related utilities.

It aims to provide a familiar environment for beginners to Linux, which requires relatively low hardware resources to run

It’s based on Debian and Devuan.

What's a Linux distribution ("distro")?

A distro provides the user with a desktop environment, preloaded applications, and ways to update and maintain the system.

Each distro makes different choices, deciding which open source projects to install and provides custom written programs. They can have different philosophies.

Some distros are intended for desktop computers, some for servers without a graphical interface, and others for special uses. Because Linux is an open source operating system, combinations of software vary between Linux distros.

Fantastic distro that’s very much overlooked.
