I am not a expert but from my point of view here is what I think is necessary. These companies, I mean what the hell, my phone, a sony xperia android is powered by a 700mb give or take of code. A laptop I use can run with your operating system wich is less. The laptop is complex compared to the phone. I would say. What are these companies doing, I mean android system shows it is a 28mb module. I do not like this. I would like someone to make a universal operating system unrestricted, generic for all hardware types. Maybe one day they would sell them like that, os separately, or phone could cost more or less depending what operating system the customer picks, say for example, three options of os and you pay for licensing like on the computers, laptops. Probably so much junk in those 700mb, spyware, monitoring and shit.

Hi Pepperminter everywhere.  Did you know you can use just, "apt" instead of "sudo apt-get"?  Rather than using, "sudo apt-get update"  Just enter "apt update" and so one.  Check it out for yourselves.  It saves a little time and is a lot easier.

Yes, It would be wonderful if Firefox resurrected the Prism project.  All we can do about this though is hope.

Hello Pepperminters everywhere.  Did you know that holding down the Alt key while using your mouse's scroll wheel, zooms to your cursor's position.

I like Peppermint, I find it the best from the ones I have tried also because it is a small instalation size, like a CD, CD size. One problem, UEFI, in secure mode, starting instalation in UEFI it fails, seems that maybe you are not UEFI ready. It worked if I have installed Ubuntu in UEFI mode and after, Peppermint.

"Mozilla blocks Flash as Facebook security chief calls for its death".  It should be interesting to see if this finally kills off this massively cumbersome and outdated piece of software.  Here's hoping!  http://www.theverge.com/2015/7/14/8957177/mozilla-blocks-flash-as-facebook-security-chief-calls-for-its-death
After yesterday's news that Facebook's new chief security officer wants to set a date to kill Flash once and for all, the latest version Mozilla's Firefox browser now blocks Adobe's...

I think we've all heard of the ARM processor.  You've probably got one very close to you now.  If you're interested in finding out about a little bit more about this processor, its creator and it meteoric rise to the position it holds today.  Here's a great article courtesy of LINUXVOICE magazine: http://www.linuxvoice.com/sophie-wilson-acorn-and-the-development-of-arm/. 
Sophie Wilson was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2013, for having made “a substantial contribution to the improvement of natural knowledge”. By 2014, over 50 billion ARM processor cores had been shipped since the first ARM chip was created by Sophie Wilson in the mid-1980s.
