I actually laughed so much I almost fell off my chair.

And these extra .deb files would be much appreciated.

And please post the "extra debs" in a new topic with an appropriate subject line so more people will find them
I just glanced at this topic but then I read this by Fred
Have you ever tried installing retail boxed Windows and associated software on random computers, both desk top and notebook? I suspect not. That would be a real eyeopener for you. I suspect that, "instant ease of use," would not be the phrase that would come to mind. :-)

I have - I have had a computer retail web shop and I must say it can be close to hell, while installing Mint is - effortless. For me - not everyone can understand partitioning which is the only hassle in the Mint installation (in the normal case)

I had made a tutorial a few days earlier. With the files included.

viewtopic.php?f=42&t=12060

New one is not out, but the nightly releases are. I'll add it to my tutorial. If it works/doesn't work, comments are cool :P

Gizmodo interviewed Kermit some time last year, asking which Microsoft product he wish he could polish abit more before release.

Yes. I must say, I have lots of respect for Bill Gates. He does give away a large portion of his funds to many charities. I have one last thing to say. Bill Gates may have very... dirty business techniques, however, if Steve Job's $1 per year salary with VERY GENEROUS donations from apple are any indication of his techniques, then everyone is going to be in an even work position when/if ever he becomes a monopoly. :cry: :cry:
