Debian is an overkill for what I need, I prefer it for servers when stability is more important than 'desktop' type application support (ubuntu-restricted-extras ..etc)
I am now trying to decide between Xubuntu and Peppermint, (both based on 12.04)
Installed both on a 2.2gb partition, both of them ended up using the same amount of space on a compressed brtfs partition (about 1.6gb), and similar resources used.
Peppermint has much better selection of pre-installed software.
Not sure how much customization exactly has been done from ubuntu to peppermint, I have got the same sources in /etc/apt/sources.list , just like a regular ubuntu 12.04, which probably means not much customization except for desktop environment and application selection, is that correct ?
