Re: Tea or Coffee?

It is my favorite legally addictive stimulant. Likewise.... Whereas red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon or Dornfelder) is my favourite downer. :lol: I am somewhat fond of Cabernet Sauvignon, or a nice Pinot Noir. I have a bottle of 2001 Bell Mountain Pinot Noir that I am wanting to open and share with fri...

I love caffeine. Imagine a day without it.... Not only would the world look bleaker, but general productivity would nosedive and the global economy would collapse. :mrgreen:

Re: Tea or Coffee?

We discovered why St***ucks coffee tastes so bad. Not only is it over roasted, but they use a LOT of robusta beans which are bitter, and have a much higher caffeine content. https://coffeeordie.com/arabica-versus- ... ifference/

Re: Tea or Coffee?

Sometimes coffee in the morning but Mint tea in the evening with a of teaspoon honey from a local Apiary. I buy my tea by the batch from Amazon. Many years ago I use to grow my own Mint but had to contain it. It could could spread. It was great to simmer the leaves right off the vine in boiling wat...

Re: Whiskey ...

Tried Tullamore Dew, and while it was alright, it just can't beat my favorite Jamison's Caskmates Stout Edition. Good Irish Whiskey.

Re: The Mint Café

I don't know if I have said this lately, but Mint is responsible for me coming back to Linux.

Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

I guess I have been lucky, each installation went smoothly except for the one on the HP laptop which had a battery issue. The wifi issue on my first one was solved rapidly here and so I don't count that one.

Linux Security

What are some of the things one can do to make Linux (and Linux Mint) more secure? What I know so far: a) Firewall b) Don't load unknown software c) ????? Browser security? How do you keep Chromium/Chrome from "phoning home" Internet security? Logging into the coffee shop wifi? Perhaps a good tutori...

Basic usage of LinuxMint must work flawlessly, otherwise newbies will run back to Windows.
Agreed. That said, I'm sometimes surprised to how much trouble some of them go to get it working regardless.
It is because they have a generation of Microsoft and Windows use behind them in some cases.

Re: Move from Stretch to Buster

Same question here, with Buster, I think I would like to try LMDE, and hopefully LMDE 4 will come soon.

Re: What sends noobs running back to Windows?

Apparently many distros are NOT really too excited about fixing regressions, broken parts, and just slamming stuff out there. Dedoimedo has a less than glowing review of OpenSuSe 15.1 https://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/opensuse-leap-15-1.html And while he is a bit opinionated, I find him at least w...

Re: Microsoft Windows running the Linux Kernel?

How much control does Apple have over the BSD Kernel? Does Apple support BSD or just use what is produced?

Microsoft Windows running the Linux Kernel?

Since Microsoft seems to be getting into Linux quietly, Brian Lunduke thinks that Microsoft transitioning into a Linux Kernel might not be pure science fiction. What is the thoughts here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S27_WyQKQdQ

Re: Happy Fourth of July!

It was good, cooked for about 25, had almost no food left over, nice firework display, and a good time was had by all. The only complaint I had was we ran out of Shiner Bock beer, and hot dog buns (we used tortillas).
