One of the virtues of the Linux distributions is that they are lighter than any other os on earth. The Linux Peppermint OS, lighter, faster and easier to install and run. Peppermint is a combination of the two OSes Ubuntu and ChromeOS. Peppermint is like ChromeOS because they believe that we users spend most of the time on Internet, using just one software, Browser. So they provide most of the online applications to perform daily tasks. And Peppermint is like Ubuntu because unlike ChromeOS, Peppermint allows users to install software/applications like Ubuntu based distributions. Peppermint has nice ‘Software Center’ and Peppermint has also the access to the Ubuntu official ppa that has bundles of software available.
