Re: new laptop - what brand? what type

I would advise you to stay away from win 8 machine not because of fast boot but UFEI secure boot. you'll have to jump sum hurdles to get mint 13 installed. I think at this point you would do well to look and Zareason or System 76 there maybe others that pre-load Linux. http://zareason.com/shop/Alto...

Re: libreoffice 3.6.3

vincent, thanks for your reply i understand that, but since mint 13 is a lts version i thought it would be updating its software as well - what else is the point of an lts version if it does not get the latest software -- in this case LO3.6.3 does not have new features, but fixes some annoying bugs ...
