Re: Where to turn for support with other distros?

some of the smaller / less known Linux Systems, - often don't have any Support Forum, or their Support Forum is basically inactive. But, there are more generic Support Forums like Linux Questions OR Just Linux OR Linux Forums that often will support these smaller / less known Linux Systems. 8)

Re: U.S. Nuclear Missiles Are Still Controlled By Floppy Disks

Yeah - - do remember reading a few of these articles, over the years,
and when compared to the "modern 5 1/4" disks, those 8" disks, can't hold much information.

Re: Is the danger of Meltdown and Spectre exaggerated

it's more of an Laboratory Grade Hack, than anything else.
