Re: Linux Gaming

I am seeing more and more games that can be played on Linux on Steam. I certainly hope this is a growing trend.

Re: Observations on life

When you tell someone that doing something is a really bad idea and they get mad at you, but go ahead and do what you warned them about. After it proves just as bad as you predicted, they blame you for not being "clear" enough.

Re: My upgrade experience

Ok, HP claims that the Spectre x360 13.3" gets 8-10 hours of battery life under normal use with Windows. In practice, I have my monitor at 50% brightness, running Mint 19.0, and I get anywhere between 2.5 and 4 hours doing just web surfing, some YouTube watching, and maybe a little LibreOffice. Is t...

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

That you feel the need to belittle that shows you've still got a way to go, so stay scared until then. I was going to respond appropriately, but decided not to, instead, I will ask the m...

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

Frankly, I only expect this to do relatively trivial things for him. We'll see. In the meantime, he's spreading the message that it should be possible to work hard, play hard, get results, and yet treat others fairly and decently. I can't see that as a bad thing. I completely agree so long as the g...

Linux Code of Conduct and Linus Torvalds

https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/9geb3n/the_linux_kernel_replaces_code_of_conflict_with/ I just heard about this on DIstro Tube. For personal reasons this scares the living daylights out of me, since it is so easily abused. What meltdown by LInus are they speaking about? I must have missed th...

hi moem...that was for murphcid where he mentioned what i was replying to... Well it is a little annoying to discover that there are "secret: settings in BIOS that you have to tweak to get Linux to load. I had fits with my little HP Spectre x360, and it was annoying. I hope that those smarter and b...

Linux equivalent of MS Task Manager

I love Task Manager, I really do, on my windows system, I keep it up all the time. On my Linux laptop I fire up HTOP as soon as I boot. Is there something out there that has the same functionality/ease of viewing as Task Manager?

Anyone install Mint on an HP Omen yet?

Has anyone out there installed Mint on an Hp Omen gaming laptop yet? For half the price of the System 76 Oryx Pro I can get a similar spec HP Omen for linux gaming at $1,200 from Amazon, vs, roughly $2,000 from System 76. Granted I like the System 76, but the Omen also gets you a thuderbolt port. Th...

steam hardware survey said 0.5 percent, and that may sound small, but out of the 125 million accounts, thats over 600,000 users gaming on linux.
That is a reasonable amount, and I plan on making it 600,001 soon. I would like it better if we had 25 million accounts....

Re: Boring Mint??

I just recently had to install windows 7 on a PC. The most ridiculous thing about the whole experience was having to download all the drivers on Mint and transfer them across to the windows OS via pendrive. It was also the same with an installation of 8.1. What kind of system is created whereby you...

Similar does not equal the same.... except perhaps with shooters some rts and space 4x..... everyone keeps doing the same thing only more "modern" because it's "safe"... safe is boring Agreed.
