I recently stumbled across PepperMint OS while I was searching for a light weight ( Say extremely light weight OS for my old Asus eeePC. The amazing specs of this netbook are - 730 mhz Intel celeron processor ( PIII Architecture) 1GB Ram ( upgraded from 512 MB ), 4GB SSD. Coming in at under 512 MB on the disk, and around 1.2GB loaded, it was a blessing in disguise. I was surprised to see the boot up time ( really really short ), and pretty nifty applications that let you do Youtube, Facebook ( lite version of chrome browser ), Open around 3 tabs and Also has a built in torrent client. Other features include office applications, chat software, video chat software etc. I don't really think anything was missing for regular usage. All the function buttons for brightness, volume, mute, Wi-Fi etc worked as well from the keyboard. And in the latest avatar its the Peppermint 3 thats the new OS on the block - Do check it out here, and do share your feedback if you get around to installing it.
