Re: Mint Alternatives

A thing of the past, maybe, but it can certainly be done, It seems to me ...you don't know the difference between a CD and a DVD as the image shows. http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/sick/sick0010.gif Please explain how you can get a 1.8GB Mint ISO on a 700MB CD http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/...

If you're having Heat problems...sounds like a Hardware issue...not Mint...I've been running Cinnamon since 17.2 and never had a heat problem...you might want to look at that first. http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/winking/winking0017.gif Also in the other thread you mention cd burners not workin...

Re: Mint in Crises?

Why do I keep hearing rumblings about some sort of Mint Crises?

Re: erase factory recovery

What's the point of having a Recovery Partition for an OS you no longer have ? http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/rolleye/rolleye0003.gif My Asus Laptop (7 yrs old) came with Windoze 7 and had a Recovery Partition of 15GB...That's 15GB of wasted space. http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/mad/mad0025....

At least Linux Mint doesn't spy on you and collect your information and sell it to Governments or anyone with cash like Micro$oft does. or have secret hidden Back-Doors where Micro$oft Employees can access your System and look at or change/delete your files. FUD Where is the evidence that Microsoft...
