Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

It's been said already but to repeat, "noob" - man, do I dislike that term. So derogatory. So L33T 90s! Maybe, but I don't think so, at least not on here. The term is used loosely & is often cited by people new on here calling themselves "noobs". I don't see what is wrong with being new to somethin...

A big Thank You to the Mint Devs.

Personally, from me, I want to express my thanks to everyone who works on, and brought us the wonderful Mint software. You don't get told thank you enough for your hard work and dedication. So Thank you.

Ugh, the Insertion of the Royal Shaft got me good this year. So much for upgrades, and pretty much any fun spending.

Re: When did you come to Linux?

Chaos Manner was always my first port of call whenever the new Byte arrived. Jerry certainly had some interesting stories. Haven't had Byte magazine for years, does it still exist? Sadly, no. But I, too always wanted to see what Jerry was using, great hardware far, far more expensive than anything ...

Re: Ikea is taking over the world!

She Who Must Be Obeyed. That expression always makes me cringe so hard. In a good relationship, no one obeys or must be obeyed. I wouldn't want a partner who obeyed me. Who wants to be with a doormat? I use it, but in a very humorous way, since my wife of 30 years and I are equals. We just know the...

Ikea is taking over the world!

Ok, San Antonio recently had an IKEA store move in. I swore an oath, I would never set foot inside, since all the furniture is press wood that falls apart quickly, and cannot be damp. Well my daughter insisted she HAD to go, and I walked in absolutely determined that I would hate it, and there was n...

Re: Why oh Why can't we make Linux better looking

XFCE seems to be the most mod friendly desktop environment, but it also appears that the XFCE team is slowing down somewhat (this might be unfair, and if it is I apologize). Again my dream desktop environment is a clone of the Apple Aqua interface seen in Mac OS 10.1-10.6, just one of the most lovel...

Re: Just say NO to Mint19

I must give Kudos to both Mint and HP for how painless it was to install the printer (HP Officejet Pro 6978) on my Linux Mint laptop. I did not need to manually do anything! Plug and play.

Re: When did you come to Linux?

I switched a couple of weeks ago because a tiny lightweight, perfect for travel Dell with only 32GB was sitting useless due to Win10 updates. Now there's 14 GB free & the computer is working, probably better than new. So far only problem has been connecting to Dell wireless MFP. This makes me reluc...
