Re: Uninstall Linux Mint?

"Big rainbows deal?" Is that necessary?

You can beg to differ, but factually it's not a Mint related question.

Re: Uninstall Linux Mint?

First post on the Mint site asking how to install Windows? This isn't a Mint support question.

Select the easy/standard mode whatever it is. All the settings are as they need to be.

Re: The Face of Linux Mint Support

I've also found the IRC channel toxic. Had one experience where I'd helped a newbie through quite an involved problem and he asked me a single non-support type question in signing off. A mod (or self nominated mod) basically told us to get off the channel if we were going to talk off topic and conti...

Sounds like next release of Cinnamon will address this on desktop at least but not sure about games.
Not really. From what I read they're just going to unlock the frame limiting to decrease the perception of lag between mouse and window movement. Working vsync is what's needed.

Re: Linus Torvalds takes break to work on his personality flaws?

I have and if you're not strong it will go to hell. I can't begin to imagine how tough it is running the world's largest software pro...

Re: Any music producers out there using Linux DAW's????

Bitwig is a very strong commercial offering. I had a play with it a while back, pretty sure it worked with Jack but I could be mistaken.

So it's basically a keyboard with an rgb LED behind each key. Feels way overpriced and oversold to me. Still some sucker will buy it.

No it doesn't - but the software matures over time as updates, tweaks and fixes are delivered via the update manager.

Re: Microsoft to start charging monthly fee for Windows 7...

I'm no fan of Microsoft, but what they're doing seems perfectly reasonable. If you want extended support for end-of-life software, you pay a fee.
