Re: Winux? Really?

Knowing that Microsoft was contributing to the Linux Kernel made me very uncomfortable at first, but the kernel team knows what they are doing.
I fervently hope that kernel team has their eyes peeled to make sure that the snakelike MS doesn't slip some backdoor code into the kernel.

Re: Tea or Coffee?

The only bad coffee I had back in the old days when a new shipmate arrived on board, fresh out of navy boot camp, who had the misfortune to mistake the salt water sink for the fresh water sink. The only coffee we had was USN issue that came in five pound tins and doled out by the Chief cook. While i...

Linux Mint doesn't have an ARM edition.
You can likely get all of Linux Mint's software working on the Raspberry Pi 4 but will mean compiling them from source.

Do Not ! ever install anything on a work computer without prior permission. Even if you are absolutely sure that it will be the perfect solution for a problem.
