Re: [Chat] Still keep a Windows? Speak out your reason

So Linux is indeed Windows' best friend , and I'll keep on repeating that fact on the internet until someone pops me. But frankly it's also true that Windows is Linux' best friend. Linux is NOT ready for prime time as a sole OS, but thanks to Mint it's getting very close. The first time I installed...

I have heard if a memory stop working after too much write/erase cycle, this will "simply" be dead sector. Causes your SSD to be tinier.
So you will have less and less total disk space.

Re: Qiana mate vs. windows 8.1

Well I am the only one who found windows 8 DE colourful and funny. I was glad they give up the start menu I was not using it after all. And these hiding button was pretty cool because you had more place for real stuff. They have done a great diet on code over Windows 7. And yes this is still windows...

Linux market penetration

Hi guys & girls.
Linux is growing in France, according to gs statcounter.
In one year, linux took twice his market share! Growing to 3,63 %
It is a good start, isn't it ?
Maybe this graph will say more.
