TuxJam 95 – Simply Minty

The guys return from a long break in the Mediterranean, all sun bronzed and ready for a new episode (not really). In this episode we take a look at the recently released PeppermintOS 11, this being an emotional release as it is the first since the death of the project’s leader Mark Greaves. We also start taking a look at the first of our apps from the Simple Mobile Tools suite: the Simple Keyboard on Android. We take a look back at the Podcrawl in February and also look ahead to the next one, which is due to take place on the 18th June.

One thought on “TuxJam 95 – Simply Minty”

  1. Due to the magic of time-travel I have already listened to the full uncut 2.5 hour show.
    Having been a tester of PeppermintOS I agree with the fair comments and review given to this Linux distro.
    Since the creation of TuxJam 95 PeppermintOS have released a new 64 bit ISO and the official 32 bit ISO.
    I have the 32 bit version running well on my 13 year old Asus EeePC 1000 Netbook.
    As always guys a most excellent episode with cracking music and banter. Thank you!
