Re: Best file system for WD "My Passport" external hard drive?

Since I only use my external drive on Linux, I formatted it to ext4.

This is a feature of Mate, not Mint. If there is a way to change it, I can't figure it out. Sorry.

Re: FBI Tells People To Reboot Routers, Warns Of Major Malware Infection

My router wasn't on the list, but I checked for firmware updates, which there was one and I installed, and also rebooted, just to be on the safe side.

It's not available offline. The Update Manager has to download the kernel(s).

Any good (and good looking) chess apps?

I'm looking for a good chess app. I've looked at a few, and the screenshots were all ugly. Are they any good looking chess apps out there? But I can live with ugly if any of them play decently. Thanks.

Re: Manjaro overtakes Mint in Distrowatch page-hit rankings

If you look at the year 2017, Mint's average hits per day was 2,757. If you look at the last 30 days, or last 3 months, or last 6 months, all those numbers are above 2,800. So Mint's numbers are actually rising (albeit very small). It's just that Manjaro's are rising exponentially. For free software...

If you know version 72 works, why not just go back to that version?
