First look at Peppermint 9

Peppermint 9 was just released this week and well worth the wait. It’s based on Ubuntu 18.04, it’s super lightweight and extremely stable.

The Last Fedora

Its a terrible pun, I’m poking around in Fedora 28 and themed it up a bit. I’ve never been a fan of GNOME’s Adwaita theme and icon set.

Solus GNOME vs POP_OS! installed packages

I’ve been on a GNOME kick for a couple months and noticed something about Solus’ spin that surprised me… It’s using far fewer packages than POP_OS!.

I know I’m comparing two completely different systems here; both with their own goals. However, both are relatively minimalist in their approach with included software. That Ubuntu core I’ve come to love is a wee bit hefty. Even Lubuntu which I lived in for awhile had more packages.

This is not a balanced comparison, both systems are not stock installations. Solus is sporting Steam while POP_OS! is my WordPress development rig.  Still I was surprised how much Ubuntu’s core has grown over the years.
