Re: Goodbye

I had a good time on the forum Linux Mint.Unfortunately, I cannot give much useful to this forum. Most of my posts are here have little real value. So I decided not to waste any more time on this forum.Maybe I'll be back in a year or two :D Bye. I had to research your post history to understand the...

Re: American College is a Waste of Money

Here in the US, attending a graduate university or even a small community tech college is really turning into a waste of money. Unless you have scholarships or any aid, you'll owe more in debt than you'll ever make back. I'm very frustrated with our educational system right now. I'm an honors stude...

Re: "In the old days we...."

Using Linux on an old 386SX computer was interesting. I came from a 3rd world country. So, while you guys were on 386SX, I was still on PC/XT compatible machines. No BBS in our area, even from the closest business district. But copies of commercial software were less than a dollar per 5.25" disk. ;...

Re: "In the old days we...."

Operating systems?? You were lucky. We had to carve our own ones and zeros out of rocks. HA! Back in my day we only needed uncarved rocks for ones and no rocks at all for zeroes. Sheer luxury!!! In my day, rocks hadn't coalesced yet. And the Universe was really really hot! Lucifer? Is that you?

Re: Why not make Linux Mint be a 10 year project on all distro

But to compensate for my craziness I have developed a set of files for making the transition to a new version as painless as possible, so I can set everything up the way I want it (yes, sadly, I am pretty OCD on the whole thing too). Then when I am all finished, the new installation really isn't mu...

Re: Why not make Linux Mint be a 10 year project on all distro

Who's forcing you to upgrade every time a new point release comes out. If you have a working Linux Mint 19.0 why do you find it necessary to upgrade to Linux Mint 19.1 and so on. I never did understand why users feel the need to upgrade as the changes usually ain't that much different but perhaps I...

Re: I wish the Dictionaries that check spelling were half arse decent

Remember those Linux vs Windows threads? The spelling and grammar check is just one of the hundreds of small reasons why Linux will never overtake Windows in popularity.

Re: Opinions on Linux Distros i've tested.

These are my distros set up on multi-boot desktops, or on my laptops: * Linux Mint - When I just want to concentrate on getting my work done instead of playing with the distro. * Debian - A little more stable than Mint, but I seldom use it because the old Kernel and drivers do not support my printer...
