Re: Windows comedy hour

I tried Windows 10 once, and it refused to let me install a couple of my old games. Sure, old software and new operating systems stop liking each other after a while, so I wasn't too surprised really. It's just ironic that all my other games from around the turn of the millennium ran just fine, the ...

Re: Do you use LibreOffice?

I voted "yes", it's the office suite I use when I need one and I would most likely have installed it even if it weren't there in Mint from the beginning. In reality I only use it a few times a year, but the frequency doesn't really matter since having access to at the very least a word processor and...

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

I had been using Ubuntu for quite a long time, but when they made the switch to Unity I absolutely hated it, and even if it got more polished after a while I still didn't like it. It didn't exactly help that my laptop was a MacBook Pro and that I had a similar but much less cluttered desktop environ...

Re: Hej from Sweden!

The average Scandinavian making their way here is comfortable using English, yes, but not all people from Scandinavia trying Mint. I also think that we should get a pan-Scandinavian one, and preferably linuxmint.dk, linuxmint.no and linuxmint.se all would redirect to it. Maybe linuxmint.fo and linux...

Re: Hej from Sweden!

Thank you :) But to be honest, the difference between written Swedish and written Danish and written Norwegian is like the difference between American (Swedish), British (Danish) and Australian (Norwegian) English to me. When you look at the vocab that is, when you look at the orthography the differ...

Re: Hej from Sweden!

I obviously speak English :wink: Greek is trickier though, but I can kind of read the script.

Tack så mycket! (Swedish)

Hej from Sweden!

Hej! As you can see I'm Swedish, and I tried to register at the Swedish forum first, but I guess the admin there isn't very active :? I come from Ubuntu like many other people; I never really became friends with Unity and a friend told me about Mint and MATE, so I thought I should test it and got ho...

Re: What is Ubuntu Doing to drive them here?

That's the thing, Ubuntu used to be "Linux for ordinary people" so using dconf just to remove a couple of things from the launcher? nah, that's not for ordinary people, that's for advanced users. About the "filter results" never saw that :oops: Still, for the beginner it should be there by default, ...

Re: What is Ubuntu Doing to drive them here?

I don't like Unity, it's as simple as that. It's a lot better than in the beginning though, the main problem I have with it in 12.10 is that when you look for programmes they are still sorted by name rather than category, and that all the things you find in the system settings are also among the ins...

Re: What if Ubuntu goes away

I don't understand why they couldn't just have made an additional interface for phones and tablets instead of forcing desktop users to use it too. Sure, it would probably have taken a few more resources, but seeing how many different editions with different desktop environments they already have it'...
