If you're an EU citizen you can vote now (till mid August) on a poll on whether to abandon daylight savings time (summertime) within the EU:

Exactly same words written about any distro. It is true. Actually any Linux desktop looks ugly by default. Take it easy.

Probably it is a hidden message that he will not refuse a some billions too. Just in case. Why not?

Re: The "fox" is buying the hen house??? Microsoft purchases Github

Let me repeat one more time. It's impossible to buy anything if nobody sells it. There is nothing to do with the MS strategy because selling was GitHub wishes.

Remember! Nobody can buy something while something is not for sale. So, it is not killing. It is suicide.

Re: The "fox" is buying the hen house???

If M$ buys Canonical's Ubuntu-Linux distro, that would mean the eventual demise of Win 10 and M$ because Ubuntu is cost-free while Win 10 is not cost-free and most users would then flock to other cost-free Linux distro, eg Linux Mint, Zorin, Peppermint, Elementary, Fedora, etc. 3% of desktop users ...

Re: The "fox" is buying the hen house???

The way I see it, it is as if GitHub opened the gate, rolled out the red carpet, set out a welcome mat, and waited for someone to walk in with a fat bank account and an open checkbook. I bet if MS will decide to buy any Linux distro for 5-7 Billion then any distro will start to look for the same re...

M$ is trying this... M$ is trying that... Why to blame Microsoft for buying? Nobody can buy nothing without somebody who want to sell it.
Blame GitHub for this and that.

Re: Using Windows 10 was like...

We were heading to friends place last night and, coming from a different direction, we got lost. Ok, fire up google maps on the phone. Fine, it told me where I was, but it didn't know the name of any of the streets we tried, only because we couldn't remember the name of street that they lived on! T...

There is one thing you must know. There is no such thing as "your email". Everything stored at someboby's servers. It is "their email". You only allowed to look.

Have no idea how people triped without GPS 25 years ago (and without Windows 10 too). Nobody lost. Most problems people create by themselves.

Re: Forum login saved but no auto logon

Yes, I agree, It is annoing to manually logon to the any forums. Have you any question about how to get rid of such behaviour? Note: actually there is no problem to "automatically" logon to Mint forum. If you have a question then just ask.

Re: Secure Email: Have we reached a point of consensus?

Many systems and solutions exist, but the big name ones I know about are Tutanota, Proton Mail, and PGP. It's depend. If you want to hide your messages from occasional curios men then encode your messages. If you want to hide from something like FBI then encoding will not help. They will knock in y...
