Just heard of this distro about 5 minutes ago. I was looking for something linux based (obviously) for my netbook, and bam...I came across this sexy looking distro. I'm downloading the ISO as we speak, and will have it installed in a matter of minutes. I hope I will be amazed/impressed.

Anyhow, thought I'd pop in and say Hi, I'm looking forward to using this distro, and spreading the word.
Cheers.

Welcome, and I think you will enjoy Peppermint, in either flavor. If you get it installed, could you post the results of
Code:
inxi -F
here so the developers will have that data for their records? Please and thank you

Those are some good looking memory usage stats you have there. ;)

And thats what linux is amazing for. Actually, this distro is probably the lightest I've used. I find Ubuntu standard edition to be pretty demanding on memory, as Fedora 14 is pretty good.

One thing that does amaze me, is the shutdown and boot times. Even being on an SSD harddrive, its still killer fast.

Great work, so far enjoying my test run of this peppermint release, definitely will start using it more.

Are you using One, or Ice? Ice seems to be a little quicker to me. Just curious.

Ice is more stripped down than One, so it is faster.

welcome! i learned about the distro recently as well. i am more than happy with it. i am a fellow eeepc user as well. i'm curious, do all of your hotkeys work on your 1001p? i have a 1005p and i never got all of mine to work correctly, even after a re-install.

No they don't work. I have to sit down and work on getting them to function. My brightness doesn't increase or decrease properly and my volume etc hot keys don't function at all.

They'll be a new project when I get time.

Good luck! It's quite time consuming and can be quite a headache. I don't know if you're familiar with Linux or not but from what I understand Peppermint uses an LXDE platform that makes it so fast. Over at archlinux.org (arch linux is another lightweight distro that uses LXDE but seems geared toward advanced users) there are wiki's on certain models of laptops and netbooks. here's your model's page --https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Asus_Eee_PC_1001p --.

that will tell you how to get your hotkeys working among other things. it depends, however, on how familiar you are with file locations, file names, writing code, editing grub files and building packages. i tried working things out with my 1005p using eeepc acpi scripts (.conf and .sh files) for all models listed on this page -- http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=23318 -- (acpi scripts, according to my vague undersanding, can give new directives within LXDE and other platforms concerning keyboard bindings and hotkeys as the program 'acpid' is responsible for recognizing the keystrikes and implementing the desired output).

i couldn't for the life of me, however, figure out how to get them working but perhaps they might be useful to you. i don't know quite how to assemble packages and install them. let us know how it goes. i'd be curious to find out.
