Long time Linux user here much love to the community . I started way back in 2005 with Ubuntu and migrated over to Linux Mint 8 and stayed with them until the 2015 and found a new home on PeppermintOS, - was looking for a nice XFCE distro at the time PeppermintOS fit the bill. Plus they have a really nice community of folks over there, I am sure the same is here as well.
I only have two things I wish they would do.
- I wish they had an upgrade path. Their philosophy is......, to upgrade you must format and install the new version. Which, I get it...., clean install and less chance for issues to arise.
- They are deep in the distro chain.... i.e. they are based on Xubuntu but they still have some LXDE stuff in their desktop environment.
I read a lot about SolydXK and tested the live key. pretty impressive I must say.
With that said, I was wondering if some of you folk could let me know how you feel about Solyd.... are you happy with it does it perform to your needs, etc..
For me I am a application dev by trade, I use Apache/Nginx, Mono, ASP.Net CoRE, c#, postgres etc.... all which run well on my Debian server.
But on Peppermint is where the real work happens right.... , all the iDE's and other applications I use for daily work...
Any way I am rambling, thanks for any input and I appreciate your time.
