Rolling releases are toys for people who don't appreciate a stable and reliable system. So: -1.
Yes, but take a minute to consider all the broken systems you could be helping people with...it's a great way to meet new forum members.

Try updating your browser.

If your Firefox version is a single digit...you might have a problem.

Re: 5 Reasons Why Linux Mint is Better Than Ubuntu

KDE Plasma is a big bucket of parts and doo-dads.

If tinkering and poking around settings and configurations endlessly is your thing, you'll be in heaven.

There's something to be said about having a stable, sensible OOTB experience like Mate and Cinnamon provide.

Re: SATA controller card insanity

MartyMint, you mentioned "Marvel controllers are well supported in the Linux kernel." This is only true if you know what you are doing. Since there are no installers and since the latest Linux driver seems to be from 2011, us new Linux users are out of luck. You are looking for a Windows answer whe...

Re: How do you select the ones you help?

And i will always thank you for the help you showed me when i first moved from Windows to Mint, and it's been a fantastic journey of discovery for myself that now has a more or less Linux Mint household, and no actual real reliance on Windows anymore (just by choice for games!). If you want to use ...

Re: External DVD Drive Won't Mount

Sounds like the laser is shot on the drive. It's not an uncommon problem. Yet windows machines are able to detect, mount, and use the drive as normal. That's not the impression you gave from this: Edit: Just a quick update, I have just tried to reboot the machine. Nothing. The drive is not recogniz...

Re: SATA controller card insanity

I wouldn't recommend a SAS controller for average user every day use. That's like swatting a fly with a bazooka. The OP's problem is likely power delivery to SATA drives through the PCI-E port. They might be asking too much of a power delivery through a single port. P.S. Marvel controllers are well ...

Re: WinRAR for Linux?

There are dozens of viable solutions to the question you're asking.
You're triggered by the fact that these solutions don't act and look exactly like they do in Windows?

Do you also want that Windows notification sound when the compression process completes?


Pure pedantry.

Theoretical burst speeds.

Other factors may influence actual reported benchmarks.

Re: Low Latency Kernel and Software Development

Low latency kernels are to solve a problem that doesn 't really exist anymore, I don't think devs are much interested now. I would say, if you need to ask what a low-latency kernel is all about... it's probably not for you . If anyone is interested in doing a deeper dive into the mechanics of runni...
