Re: Best note taking software for Linux

can anyone recommend one? https://alternativeto.net/software/evernote/?platform=linux google-fu Take your pick :) Thanks, I think Simplenote, I trust the opinions of the good people on this board who have actually used the software which is why I ask. My daughter is good at winders but really likes...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Tell us how you REALLY feel :) I still have Winders for Photoshop, iTunes, and games. Gimp is plenty good enough to replace photoshop. If you must rely on bits of fruit, you deserve what you get. (FWIW, SWMBO has a couple of bits of fruit and neither of them rely on iTunes to talk to any computers ...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Mint really goes a long way to fixing this problem, and I, personally think, that Mint is ready for Prime Time. I remember the agony in Mandrake of trying to find (and understand) what I needed to load a program, and make it work. What dependencies I needed, and where to go find them. It made me gi...

Best note taking software for Linux

I posted this question in another thread, but no one had a suggestion, so here it is: What is the best, most easily usable note taking software (sort of like Evernote or One Note) for Linux? I had to give my daughter the HP Pavillion gaming system I purchased for $150 at a divorce sale (new in box, ...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Dependency h*ll is and was a major Linux problem, and I think it really hurt the adoption of Linux vice Winders. I remember that from my early days with Mandrake Linux. Linus Torvalds mentioned something like this in a Q&A session (DebConf 14?) on the reasons why Linux has not overtaken the desktop...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

Tell us how you REALLY feel :) I still have Winders for Photoshop, iTunes, and games. Windwoes 10 deserves a thorough ridiculing... the installation process goes like this...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

After using linux and having all the customisation options available, Windwoes is quite ugly and very ungainly. Two serious understatements there IMHO .. :mrgreen: Only because the mods would be on to me if I used the applicable expletives :) <aside> Hi, mods! :) Tell us how you REALLY feel :) I st...

So does Windwoes.

Horses for courses.
Yeah, 45 minute updates, seven hour upgrades (if it works), spyware, bloatware, and did I mention spyware?
Well, yes, but it still works. People wouldn't use it otherwise.
I agree, but man is it annoying.

Constant demands for money, constantly fighting "Blue Screen of Death" Best DE in the Linux environment, and it is stable, never had a crash that I didn't invent on my own :lol: Very true.

I think it creates a situation in which there is continuously decreasing incentive for programmers to be as motivated as they were at a previous point in time to create code that was as efficient as it was at the said previous point in time. Lay answer: in my opinion, yes.
I agree completely.

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint??

I did not like Ubuntu/Amazon, and really disliked Unity desktop. Loaded 17.something and started playing with it.

Re: When did you come to Linux?

My daughters computer went down, and she HAD to have a laptop for college so my new(ish) HP Pavillion gaming computer with dual drives and Mint 19.1 went to her, and she likes it. So I might not get it back. I got the Pavillion in a divorce sale for a song. Judge told the husband to sell stuff to gi...
