https://linuxcritic.wordpress.com

It’s been a little over a year since I reviewed the first Peppermint OS, and while I liked the first effort on this new project, I’ve been really looking forward to Peppermint Two.

Three years ago, the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment (LXDE) was a faltering project. However, since then, accounts of LXDE's death have proved greatly exaggerated, and the project is once again flourishing.
