"There's been quite a lot of talk about "the cloud"
lately so what better time to do a review of one of the best

Peppermint OS Two is based on Lubuntu 11.04 and, for the first
time, comes in a 64-bit edition. Lubuntu is a good choice as a base
for Peppermint OS Two since it runs well on older or slower
"Peppermint OS Two uses web-based applications for much of its
default software. These applications are integrated into the
desktop by the Ice SSB framework and essentially make these

using your browser."
