It is known that updates for Windows 8 have overwritten the current bootloader settings in dual-boot settings, and in some occasions set the UEFI mode to UEFI. this is what I was thinking too. I swore it was in legacy mode. I switched it from UEFI back to legacy but boot repair keeps stating someth...

Unity is my favorite desktop....after i left windows, but before discovering linux, i used a mac for about a year and really liked it (but decided not to stay apple because of the high hardware costs) so Unity makes me feel right at home as that desktop is very "mac-like" :wink: The Unity launcher ...

Re: What is your favorite or least favorite desktop

I see lots of people liking XFCE. Let me ask you this... For those of you using XFCE, is it because you're using old hardware or another reason? What about Gnome3? Personally gave it 5-10 minutes and said screw this. I never really gave it a chance. I have used Ubuntu a while back, probably never us...

Getting a desktop manager to work was a task in it's self, (insert back in my day quote here). I've also used Yoper, (Loved It!), Gentoo, Many versions of Ubuntu,...

Re: How do you guys deal with Linux haters? O.o

The thrill I get from linux, (yes thrill), is making things happen and having the ability to make them work the way I want to, not the way Bill or Steve told me to.

Re: Not happy with Petra. How do I downgrade?

I got Petra working on my laptop with hybrid graphics. (i7/nvidia 650m) I used the bumblebee drivers. Optirun/Primusrun work perfect. It was a bit tricky but I got it.

Having trouble on my friends HP with amd/ati hybrid graphics but I'm not giving up.
