Re: Do you I think I have made a big mistake by buying a 720p TV ?

If you don't think you made a mistake and you are happy with what you purchased than that's all that really matter's. I'm still watching an old 25 inch crt tv using an digital to analog converter box with an outdoor tv antenna and have zero complaints. If you are happy with it then doesn't matter wh...

Re: And now for something completely different!

That is really neat and really amazing what people were able to create in those times. The art and talent of real craftsmanship does seem to be a thing of the past these days. I have a few old wind up mantle clocks and a couple of really old grandfather clocks which I inherited. Thanks for sharing. :)

Re: Win 7 and Win 10

Use whatever OS works best for you and what you're needing to accomplish on you're computer.

My Wife uses Windows 10 and wouldn't even consider trying Linux much less using it.

Noord-Brabant (Netherlands): 19 degrees Celsius. :mrgreen:
I could live with that temperature year round.

Here in Oklahoma City it's 98 degrees Fahrenheit although feels hotter than that. :(

The only good thing about Summer is when it's over. :lol:

Re: How many are 100% Linux here?

Can't say my house is 100% Linux because I run Microsoft Flight Simulator X on Windows XP offline of course.

The Wife uses Windows 10 and refuses to even try Linux.

Re: I have finally stopped distro hopping!

Not to nit-pick but isn't running several distros by definition distro hopping? I don't think so because a user who's distro hopping generally will only test drive the distro for a short time perhaps before testing another. The reason I run several different Linux distros on several different compu...

Re: Debian 10 "Buster" was released

Yep Debian Wheezy was my first experience with Linux. I then tried Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr and still use Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver. I use LMDE 3 and prefer LMDE 3 over the Linux Mint standard versions which are OK. Yeah seems like a good enough reason to toss back a few double shoots of Wi...

I guess it depends on your taste and what you are use to.

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

Yeah I hear ya MX Linux is a good choice for anyone just like Linux Mint Xfce and both being Xfce are pretty much the same from my experience although MX Linux being Debian its software packages are probably older than Linux Mint software packages.

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

I created a live USB and holy hell, it is blazing fast compared to Mint on my set up.....i3 w 4g of ram on an Acer all in one. I expect a full install will be even faster. Now, being a somewhat thinking man, I wonder is is because it is a fresh install without all my programs added or just works we...

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

Mint sure appears much more polished, but, from my reading, MX seems to operate more smoothly and be an easier distro for newbies. I've used Linux Mint Xfce and MX Linux in the past and I find them both to work well and either one of them is easy to navigate without problems. Curiosity has me now.....

AntiX is nice, even though it might take a bit more effort on the user's part.
Yes it is and the slight learning curve isn't hard to overcome as there is an excellent how to guide.
