Re: Does it matter if I stay on an Old Linux Mint Version?

once, an older LinuxMint System goes off-line, then you will have to update any programs, such as Firefox .. manually. this is something that I'm doing with an older LM17 series Laptop. - - it can go on-line, but it usually doesn't do so. there is no plan, to update that Laptop, at this stage, as th...

Re: Issues regarding file usage

those mp3,,mp4,,txt files .. should work with the correct Linux program:
- what error are you getting ?,
if any ?.

the Linux system will use an ext3 or ext4 file system,
& the windows system will use NTFS or fat32, for example.

Re: Looks like YouTube is up to their BS yet again.

as you would know, that HMTL5 is an replacement for Adobe Flash Player.

yet, with most web browsers now auto-blocking features & advertising,
then there is this side issue of basic functionality.

you need to adjust the settings in your web browser, to play those videos . .

Re: Anybody else see big changes in GIMP 2.10 on Mint 20?

Yes - - there has been some changes,
- from V2.6.x .. V2.8.x .. V2.10.x
and each one is somewhat different, to the last version.

it is possible, to re-arrange the Icons & Groups, back to what they were .. roughly.
