Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Originally -- it was my first computer and I knew I wanted to go Linux and didn't like Ubuntu. :) I saw a recommendation on Nixie Pixel's Youtube channel about Mint, thought it looked interesting, and went from there.

My question is, ¿what is the difference between the "http://http.debian.net/debian" , content in "jessie-backports.list" , and the "http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian" , content in "official-package-repositories.list" ? There's not much practical difference between the two. One uses http, and the othe...

Re: Legacy Qt installer / site with legacy installers? (for Windows)

I would try getting it from the Qt archive . I'm not sure which .exe download would be appropriate though. Do keep this in mind, though. The Qt Wiki says Warning:...The project seems to be dead.

Well, since no such advanced version of the kernel appeared in the update manager, I assumed it wasn't available.

I was convinced by OneNote to give them a try -- plus, the fact that my work Win7 machine has been rather reliable made me think I could use Win 10.
