Peppermint Linux OS

I fell over a GNU/Linux distribution called Peppermint today, when I was searching after something Linux Mint 9 LXDE (Me and Joliclound 1.0 didn’t work out that well). I haven’t tried Peppermint yet but when I read on their webpage it seems really interesting:

System Requirements:
* i386 or derivative processor (AMD64 and x86_64 are fine as well)
* 192 MB of RAM
* 4 GB hard drive space (this is an overestimate just for good measure)

Under the Hood:
* Pcmanfm 0.9.7
* Openbox 3.4.11.2
* Xorg 1.7.6
* Lxsession 0.4.3

Peppermint is based on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx or to be more specific Lubuntu, but it seems like they have used something from Linux Mint as well, and the default desktop environment is LXDE. It’s focusing on cloud computing and wants everything to work out of the box. It comes in two flavours: One and Ice. The only main difference seems to be that One relies on Firefox and Mozilla Prism while Ice uses Chromium as it’s default browser and uses a custom Ice tool to link to cloud applications on the desktop.

Default Installed Applications One: Firefox, Drop-Box, Exaile, Prism, X-Chat and Transmission

Default Installed Applications: Chromium Web Browser, Drop-Box, Xnoise, Ice, X-Chat and Transmission

You can find more information on their webpage: Peppermint Linux

Think I will try it on Vesla (Asus Eee 900) soon, and maybe write you a little review?
