Just received the message that Ubuntu 10.10 is not going to be supported anymore.  Shame, I like the layout.  :(

Will probably install Peppermint like I have on my Netbook.  Problem is I am starting an online business shortly and wonder how Peppermint will react with online servers etc.   

I know you are going to say.....Won't make any difference!
Well it might.
Tethered devices to one of my smartphones only works with Ubuntu 10.04 +
Also the hosting company was told that I am using Ubuntu 10.10.

I am sure that if I get any problems there will be somebody here to help:)

I wouldn't dream of saying that .. though with "online" services I'd doubt if there will be any major problems, it really depends on what the services are ? .. at this point there are no guarantees .. but there is help ;)

I'd suggest you wait for Peppermint 3, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Linux Mint 13 before evaluating any of them .. as support for 11.04 (and therefore Peppermint 2) won't last much longer either.

I plan to upgrade to Peppermint 3 on my lappy, Ubuntu 12.04 on my brothers lappy and Ubuntu 12.04 Server for the NAS.

It seems Natty is already "old" and near the end of it's life cycle which is a real shame, because IMO that was a great distro that had a few faults. Ok, many faults, but if Natty is old, than that means Karmic is ancient and Feisty, Dapper & Edgy is literally non-existent.

Thanks Gentlemen.
Thinking of Peppermint so I will wait for version 3.  I have taken to it on my little netbook (version 2) so I think that could be the direction.

Well you only have another 2 weeks to wait until 12.04 is released. So I'd just hold out until then. :)
