And that is the simplest, best, most elegant, answer to this particular "subject" question, that i believe i have heard thusfar...Bravo, Yamelesswrench...DAMIEN

Re: Fedora 33 Installation (please hear me out)

It cheeses me off significantly when people who are using a free-beer operating system expect someone else to put in all the heavy lifting for free. Really, I do not for one moment believe that any of us have a right to ask for any kind of change without at least providing something back, such as a...

Re: Fedora 33 Installation (please hear me out)

The implication of all of those salient points being set aside is that you want someone to do it all for you, and for free. Well, the world doesn't work that way.

Re: Clam Anti Virus Settings

It's not completely useless. At my company we are more than 50% Linux users (host OS). We all must use Windows for parts of our jobs which us Linux guys do in VMs. We have customers who require virus scanning as part of our contacts, so for the Linux folders we share with VM's, we use Clam AV. That...
