Peppermint Linux OS is a cloud-centric OS based on Lubuntu, a derivative of the Ubuntu Linux operating system that uses the LXDE desktop environment. It aims to be lightning fast and easy on system resources. Peppermint is an Open Source project and uses all of its funds to provide its operating system and community services freely to the world, for everyone to to use. The distribution’s other features include automatic updates, easy step-by-step installation, sleek and user-friendly interface, and increased mobility by integrating directly with Cloud-based applications. Peppermint OS ships with few native applications and a traditional desktop interface. What originally made Peppermint unique is its own approach to creating a hybrid desktop that integrates both cloud and local applications.
