I'm really loving this distro. It looks great, it's simple, fast and functional plus very stable. I got rid of the Windows garbage and put this on two of my machines! Even better than version 6.

Great distro. After a month of strong use, it became my favorite one.

Pros: Fast, responsive, lightweight, stable, built on a solid base (ubuntu 16.04), interesting combination of apps, easy to install and use, costumizable and it does not have many preinstalled software.

Cons: Ugly interface, nemo is constantly crashing during huge file operations, web apps are not a good alternative for people who travel a lot,


I tested Peppermint 7 x64 on an Acer Aspire V3 with i7@3.2Ghz | 16Gb | 256Gb SSD | Nvidia Geforce GTX 760M. I also did some testing on an old Core 2 Duo | 8Gb | 1Tb HHD, and it did run much faster than Mint 18.1 Cinnamon. For old computers I prefer this ditro over LXLE because it is more usable to me.

Great distro. I'm even considering to use it as my main OS.

Fast start, even on my old Asus Eee PC takes only 45s from power. Fast shutdown as well, about 8s.
Easy to install and use. Like the fact that the developers encourage to use the terminal.

Stable, so far no issues.
