Re: Setting trends or chasing butterflies?

To compete with Wingewoes and bits of fruit there is still a need for some of the major packages used by those platforms to be ported to Linux. Yes, there are many alternatives that can, and do, work in Linux, but Human nature being what it is, they like the familiar. M$ Orifice is the common one t...

Re: Chris Titus Tech youtube 'Windows 10 to Linux Mint' series

I am astonished Distrotube is actually saying nice things about Mint. He was one of the mint should die crew which is why I stopped watching him, and unsubscribed from his channel. His video is Mint power user. I saw that Mint Should Die video. I was so annoyed by it and have avoided all of his vid...

Re: What is this all about? (Canonical)

In case Microsoft should ever acquire Canonical, then this will be the end of Ubuntu as we have known it. We are Microsoft. Lower your firewalls and surrender your developer accounts. We will add your source codes and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your operating system will adapt to ser...

Re: Setting trends or chasing butterflies?

I will disagree Gnome 3 is just too different to most windows users. Cinnamon and XFCE resemble the familiar desktop and make the transition easier for most.

Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

It appears that he uses the Thinkpad to test other distros. Could it be that he cannot load any other distro on his System 76 computers with coreboot and make it work? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Zyw5NCQlbU

You might give Xubuntu 20.04 a spin. Latest kernel etc.
I am waiting for Mint 20, but good idea. Well I had the first firmware update and it worked pretty darn well. I was impressed with how painless it was overall.

My oldest explained that a Karen is an entitled well off woman, usually white,usually driving a Tesla, Mercedes, or other "trendy" car, who treats sales staff like dirt, and always insists on getting their way no matter what the circumstances.

Glad to hear it. How is the Lenovo holding up over all. I looked at that one as well before finally getting the System 76.

YAY! Patent Trolls are pretty loathsome as a general rule. I am so glad Open Source has won.

Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

Overall, I think I am somewhat disappointed in the laptop, but I will see how it works with Mint 20, and re-assess.

"OK Karen"

Where did this come from? Using Karen for snoopy, self absorbed, nosy females. When did this start? Inquiring minds want to know.

My old rant back again: FONTS! FONTS! FONTS! Linux uses ugly fonts, and ugly icons. I love linux, but I wish we could make our UI/FONTS/Icons prettier.

Tests are unreliable. What kind of symptoms you had?
sore throat, body aches, high fever, nausea, cough.

No idea, but the tests were negative for the flu, odd that.

Re: What is your strategy for avoiding COVID-19 ?

I go to work, and pretty much ignore it. I am not sure that we (my family) might not have already had it back in January/February when we were all sick with what we thought was the flu, but my daughter got tested and came up negative for the flu. We were all pretty sick, but got over it in a week. ...

Re: Birthday gift for me [System 76 Darter Pro]

Man, battery life is really weird, one minute it shows 3 hours, then a second or two later it shows a little over an hour remaining. This is during only basic web surfing, no video watching, just posting on this forum, and another. Battery life is much less than advertised on the System 76 site, unl...
