It helps "the rest of us" indirectly as this is still another sustained nail in Microsoft's market share coffin.
This sounds so evil! You hate Microsoft so much! Why?
Hate is such a harsh word, but sometimes we need to be harsh.

Re: What is behind the need to "Name" a version number?

What is behind the need to "Name" a version number? to me, it is totally Superfluous and useless, and does not contribute anything to what version Mint OS we are using. 19.3 Cinnamon says it all, I can't even remember what the name is and, could care less. To me, it is more akin to having...

Re: Domestic cctv that isn't reliant on wireless or computers generally?

I went with the dvr setup cable connected to the cameras. They are 6mm lens on box cameras no infrared, I didn't want infrared because they are mounted indoors looking out and infrared reflects on glass blinding the camera at night. I use motion detect outdoor lights so the cameras can see. A friend...

Re: Home files not showing in timeshift backup, and other issues

Using Timeshift as a way to backup your "personal" files is going to bite you in the backside. Your way of using Timeshift is putting your files on sdd1 /Timeshift.

That was what Andy recommended and even wrote a tutorial for me on how to set it up but it felt too cumbersome for me. Yet your multi backups that you do are not cumbersome?

Re: Backing up your data

I have used it on both flash drive and a usb drive. I prefer it on the usb drive using mint 19.3 (I think). I boot to the usb drive. How the heck did you get it to work? Even the developer couldn't help me to get it to work on a USB flash drive. I used the usb writer app in Mint to burn the ISO ima...

Re: Backing up your data

I'm not particularly "fond" (polite terminology) of Clonezilla but it's the only program I've found that will easily work (relatively speaking) on a computer cursed with an NVIDIA graphics card. You may want to give Foxclone a try, it's made by one of our forum members. https://www.foxclo...

I love this app, I wish it had a favorites save or bookmarks save. Some of the channels have great sources of screen saver saving options. What I mean by screen saver options is using screenshot to save jpegs as screensavers. I just wish it had more ways to know and save what you discover on the man...

Re: Upgrading 19.3 to 20 - over 3 hours so far - should I be worried?

I prefer a fresh install, with the backup tool I made a backup of my software selections that I installed and did a fresh install then applied the restore the selections. It took about 15 minutes. There were two apps that weren't in the repo so I manually installed them. It took a little more time g...
