Yeah but more importantly ... there's no crappy lil micro$tinks window icon showing on your computer either, lol. One must remember to count their blessings afterall.
Messing around ... being a clown. Can't really say about LMDE since I'm using Mint's main edition ( planning on making LMDE or the debian based one with xfce the next forray into linux ) But with this version it doesn't matter ... you hit one button on the menu and it gives you a whole selection of other options at that point.
Logout, suspend, hibernate ... shut down, etc. Surely the menu you have does the same ?
That was the first thing I checked. Even unchecked it and rechecked it. The Quit option just simply is not showing. Its not a huge issue as I can hit the power button on the laptop to get the shutdown menu but I would rather do it through the menu.
It isn't about it being free. Rather, its about the freedom it brings.
