Re: Google to charge Europe

But I just don't want a Google phone. . OTOH, about 80% of the world use Android phones and about 90% of the world use desktop Windows OS. That's the real world. Let's be honest, non-Google Android phones have been and will likely be a flop in the EU = most EU-ean users don't want non-Google Androi...

Re: Dell laptop (UEFI) GParted doesn't see Windows?

Re: How automated is the Mint 19 Dual Boot installation?

. . Not sure why the LM 19 Installer is not detecting the Win Vista partition to give you the option for "Install LM alongside Windows". Could be caused by the internal hard-drive setting in BIOS Setup, eg PATA/IDE vs SATA vs RAID. Or the LM 19 Installer does not support Win Vista/XP. You may need ...

Re: Google to charge Europe

You are missing the point. The EU (and US) decisions weren't about making Windows less market dominant. They were about unbundling the software that comes with it. And Internet Explorer is no longer the dominant browser, Chrome is. So goal achieved, and the laws that were enforced by these decision...

Re: Google to charge Europe

Exactly, and that's the whole point. The situation is basically a mirror of the Microsoft situation and their forced bundling of their own software. The forced bundling is, of course, to push out the competition, which is why you run afoul of anti-trust laws if you've got a market-dominant position...

That's not normal. Usually, even 10 snapshots should not exceed 6GB. Maybe, you included the Home folder(= may contain some large data files, eg videos, music, photos, etc) in your Timeshift configuration or recently installed many 3-D games or large programs(eg CAD and video-editing).

For some guidance on dual-booting LM alongside Win 10/8.1 in UEFI and GPT-disk mode, please refer to ..........
