Hi again Pepperminters everywhere.  If you would like the Linux Help Guy to install Peppermint Six on his nice new SSD.  You must place your vote on his YouTube channel.  The Linux Help Guy has been a really good friend to the Peppermint project with his video series.  Every visit to his YouTube channel is helping his ratings.  So go and visit his channel and vote for Peppermint Six for the SSD:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUTtsY6Lzvg&feature=em-uploademail.  If Peppermint wins the popularity contest.  The Linux Help Guy will make a YouTube video demonstrating to the world how super fast and slick Peppermint Six is on an SSD.  That's worth voting for.

Just for a bit of fun. The Linux Help Guy has bought a new SSD. He's taking votes for which distro to install, Check out his YouTube channel and place your vote for Peppermint Six. At the moment it's a close race with Manjaro. Go and do your Peppermint duty and place your Peppermint vote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUTtsY6Lzvg&feature=em-uploademail.

Some of you may have noticed your Peppermint system scans during the boot process, for the Btrfs files system.   Some machines will not show the scan.  This does not mean it's not doing it.  It's doing it hidden from view.   Btrfs is still considered experimental and not ready for everyday use.  Ubuntu in their infinite wisdom have decided to scan for its implementation by default.  The majority of Peppermint users are going to be using ext4 as their file system, not Btrfs.  This renders the Btrfs start up scan a waste of time.  If you're not using Btrfs, you can remove the scan with the following instructions.  Open a terminal window with the following keystrokes: Ctrl+Alt+t.  Copy the following command, excluding the quotation marks into the terminal window: "apt remove --purge btrfs-tools".  Hit enter and do the password thing if asked.  Hit enter again and follow the on screen instructions.  Reboot your computer and you'll see the scan is gone and your machine will probably boot a little quicker.

Google to end updates, security bug fixes for Chrome on 32-bit Linux; http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/12/02/googles_chrome_32bit_linux/.
It'll work but forget about any new patches, so basically it won't work if you value your life

Very poor decision. So how does this affect older Chromebooks, which are 32-bit only?

So Chromium will seem to be still available for 32-bit Linux ... I hope that's true.

We've got them worried, so keep the votes coming.  Every vote cast, is one step closer to having Peppermint Six on the Linux Help Guy's shiny new SSD.  Every vote is also helping the Linux Help Guy's YouTube ratings.  So go and place your vote for Peppermint Six and in the process, help the Linux Help Guy ;D!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUTtsY6Lzvg&feature=em-uploademail

Just a little over a day after Adobe confirmed the discovery of a major security flaw that affects Flash for users across Windows, Mac, and Linux, the company tells Tech Insider it has released the fix "ahead of our estimated time frame."

Adobe offers a list of updates across all platforms. We recommend all users install this update as soon as they can.

While it's good that Adobe prioritized the quick fix — it's pretty serious when you have a cross-platform exploit that can "crash and take control of the affected system" — you might choose to uninstall or disable the software anyway.

Adobe Flash has a history of being vulnerable to security threats, and this can be a major issue for you. You don't need Flash to view most web content anyway thanks to other standards for video and animation like HTML5.

If you use Adobe Flash, we definitely recommend you update to the latest version. Otherwise, this site shows a bunch of links if you want to disable Flash in every web browser you have.

LINK: https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsb15-27.html (Release date: October 16, 2015)

Yep, So I ran my updates in peppermint early this morning and was surprised I even had flash still on my system. So that's exactly what I did.
