Great linux os. I just installed on a new Chuwi Lapbook pro that I purchased on Amazon. The laptop came with windows 10 that I have no interest in. I installed Peppermint 10 immediately over the top of windows. Install was quick and easy with no hang ups. Everything worked out of the box including wi-fi and printer. The os is very speedy and stable. Video play back works great. The os is very intuitive with no learning curve.

Pros- Fast and easy install
Os is very fast and stable
Everything just works out of box on new hardware

Cons- Most of the installed desktop wallpapers very dark looking
Initial shut down after new install took 5 minutes. After reboot the shut down worked perfectly and only took 6 seconds and has worked great since.

Peppermint 10 (386) on an old Macbook Pro (early 2008) 32 bit.
I received the above mentioned Mac as a gift last week.
With OSX it was almost unusable.
I read a lot of guides and howto and then I decided what to do:
1. I burnt a dvd with Peppermint 10 and booted the Mac from the dvd in the live
2. I immediately installed macfanctld (in the live)
3. I started with the installation with ONLY Peppermint as OS on the Mac
4. when I received a message that the installation didnt found an EFI support and that if I continue I do it at my own risk, I continued
5. At the end of the installation I added Plank,macfanctld, and some tweak of look and feel
NOW it works in a fantastic way!
No problems at all with drivers, memory usage, speed, wifi, sound, etc.
It is only slow at the boot.
Many thx to the Peppermint staff
