Re: One thing stops me...

I understand what you are saying and I agree that there are certain trade-offs with what ever OS a person uses, whether it is a Linux distro or Windows. If you are able to dual boot for awhile so that you can get the feel of Linux, I think that you will be happy. In the beginning you said that the t...

Re: Linux Mint 19 Sleep Issues

Thank you guys for that information. I am guessing that this is a bug with the new Linux Mint. I sure hope that the developers fix this sleep issue so that I can continue to use Linux Mint because I really like this distro.

Thanks again,

Rocky

Linux Mint 19 Sleep Issues

Hello All, I would like to use Linux Mint as my main OS but I can not because of sleep issues. I am dual booting Linux Mint 19 with Windows 10 on an old Haswell based PC with no aftermarket GPU, just internal Intel graphics. The problem is that Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon does not always go to sleep. My ...

Since Android is based off of Linux, it proves once again that Linux is the number 1 operating system in the world.

Re: LinuxMint is less safe than Windows (for newbies)

To the OP, I am a very big Windows fan so I was quite curious when I read your post. I did some investigating in order to find out exactly where this WARNING was and I found things to be quite the opposite of what you reported. Please read the following link to understand how difficult it is to crea...

Re: LinuxMint is less safe than Windows (for newbies)

LinuxMint is less safe than Windows for newbies, because LinuxMint does NOT warn during or after install that one has to create a standard user account. Windows DOES warn. And Windows DOES offer a menu to create a standard user account. Everything that DOES make LinuxMint safe is the fact that you ...

Re: What tasks aren't suiteable for Virtual Machines

I've been wondering about what tasks are unlikely to work properly when using a virtual machine in Linux Mint 18.3. Can someone tell me if there are any (types of) applications that seem particulary problematic or just flat out don't work as they should (or that need a incredible amount of RAM - i....

Re: What tasks aren't suiteable for Virtual Machines

Audio/video tasks might not work to well. Improper privileges and not enough resources are the main reasons why. You can set up the privileges easy enough, but the resources are physical.

Re: Mint 18.2 and audio hi fi

Oh yeah, I will take this opportunity to say that the 2009 Beatles remasters suck. They are way too loud, distorted and bassey. If anybody is interested, the 1987 Beatles CDs sound 1,000 times better.
