Yes It was quite a loss as PCNetSpec was Peppermint Linux.
The man went all out to help Peppermint users with their problems.
I think so and the new changes are welcome as you got to move forward.That was as I understood it to be. It's great that the distro lives on.
Seems to be a good bunch.And, indeed, welcome aboard. I'm biased, but I think we have a pretty good crew here.
It's now based on Debian Stable.I note that it's based on Lubuntu, though I'm not sure how true that is really these days, as they've moved on to Xfce and we at Lubuntu (I'm on the Lubuntu team, like all official and whatnot) now use LXQt. We're also no longer focused on old computers and don't even publish minimum hardware requirements.
It's now based on Debian Stable.
I am a bit late to the party on this... We do have a devuan base in the pipeline....... it is testing but we are looking at a full release pretty soon....You guys are welcome read about the 32 bit here:I used Peppermint when it began (same time I began learning Linux on Jaunty Jackalope) in 2010.
After Lucid Lynx, I looked for something "better" IMO for my old Shuttle and settled on PeppermintOS. It outperformed lubuntu on old PCs, was more user-friendly and easily customizable for me at the time, as far as choosing pkgs went.
I have to say it is good to see the distro go with a Debian base rather than Mark Shuttleworth's best LTS.
It's also good to see Mark Greaves' legacy carry on!
ASIDE: too bad it's not non-systemd, as well.
