I bought my father a new computer to replace his Windows XP, Intel Pentium 4, 2.4Ghz dinosaur with with 2 Gbs of RAM (I added an extra GB) and firmware dating back originally to 2003.

I thought there was no hope for this rig. It only has a CD-ROM and it took me sometime to figure out how to install from USB. I went through many tries (and fails) including Bodhi, Antix, WattOS and quite a few others.

I thought Porteus was great but it was SO complicated!

Then.. PEPPERMINT!!

I cannot begin to tell you how amazing it feels to have an OS that allows me to play video out of the box on a set up this old.. NONE of the others allowed for that.

My crowning joy was realising that I had 12 tabs open in Chromium, as well as the software manager and terminal.. WITH NO NOTICEABLE LAG! Only reason I noticed was because I suddenly remembered that there SHOULD be lag on a PC this old!

NOTE: I did try Peppermint 9 and unfortunately it was NOT as smooth and lite as 8. However, I can live with being a version behind if I gain a usable computer out of it.

10/10 for my purpose.
Running smoothly and stable on a weakly Atom netbook, 32bit. Works perfectly with Japanese language, app and web. Clean interface, great assortment of apps. Tried Puppy first which was problematic with Japanese, then Mint which was way too heavy for the hardware.

>>your days of linux hopping are over once..
Yep. I'm giving an 8 for my internal reason. I'm using version 8 on an amd x64 desktop, and plan to put version 9 on on a similar A4 machine at work. For web-application based tasks this is very, very well suited OS.
I really liked how it installed into my system, and live of 9 that I tried today on newer PC only proved my suspicion that the worke have had been doneupon it, and a thoughtful one. runs even smoother.
Really. I think my debian-based would be peppermint. And I like the name and graphics too. Thank you guys!
