Re: Year of the Linux Desktop?

For me the year, or rather the years of the Linux desktop started in 2016 when I tried Linux for the first time. :wink:

I should thank M$ for trying to force me to upgrade to Win10 from my Win7 machine, because that was what pushed me to try looking for an alternative.

Re: U.S. Navy Patents Compact Fusion Reactor

... That doesn't really answer my question. I get that putting something into a system can get you energy out of that system. I'm just talking about being able to get way more energy out than what you put in. Perhaps it's how the article describes it, but it just sounds strange. It's nuclear chain ...

Tricia is a definitely a better one, unlike Trina which could easily become Tina (19.2) with just a simple typo.

Re: A sudden shutdown despite battery didn't lost its charge

What is the room temperature where you use your laptop for gaming? There are certain laptops with hardware auto-shut-off that kicks in when certain components overheats. Is there any sign of dusts accumulating inside your laptop? That would cause an overheat easily.

Re: A sudden shutdown despite battery didn't lost its charge

Sounds like a case of bad battery. It may appear fully charged under very low load but loses usable voltage when subjected to higher load. The battery indicator could falsely report more than 90% of remaining charge on a bad battery under moderate load.

I've got this feeling the OP is just trolling. If you've been an Ubuntu (or any other Linux distro) user for that long, you would not need to create this type of thread.

I'll beat that. My first 'puter was a genuine IBM XT , 8088 processor, with a 10 meg hard drive. The shop told me "you will never fill that hard drive." He was right! Good ole DOS days!!!

Why, they are not contradicting anything I said, they're just talking about the installer, and I agree with them that the choice to make there is not to use swap, I've said that all along. You only add swap after you rebooted into your installed system. I think you misunderstood...Debian will find ...
