Re: Microsoft will ship Linux Kernel in Win 10's WSL

...Presently, Windows has about 90% world ( desktop ) market share... And a little above 0% of the webserver market and a similar share of mobile market. Linux owns the webserver market and the mobile market as well (if you consider IOS a Linux decendant - Android is Linux.) The desktop market is e...

Re: Microsoft will now use Linux Kernel in Win 10

Like most things in the world, it's good news and bad news... The good news might be that there will likely be better manufacturer hardware support for Linux especially for "new" hardware!... Another piece of good news might be an API for Win Software to run on Linux or maybe software written to run...

Re: Best Linux OS for older devices

Try LXLE or maybe Q4OS. Both are available in 32 bit versions.

I thank you for your reply good sir... but perhaps you misunderstood (or maybe I did!)... I know which printer is selected as the default and that is the printer that I am trying to print to...

Printing to default printer in Mint 19

I use the Cinnamon version of Linux Mint... In my previous version of Mint (17), when I click the print icon on the icon bar, the system would print the document I had open to the default printer... If I wanted to print to another printer, I would use the menu bar File > Print > choose a printer and...

Re: Need help putting ISO on usb and boot from it

1) Plug in USB stick 2) Open folder where ISO is located 3) Point to ISO file and right click 4) Select "Make bootable USB stick" from the menu... Enjoy the Mint! Pro tip: use a smaller USB stick... one that is only a little larger than the ISO... so if the ISO is 1.2 GB, a 2 GB USB is large enough....

Re: opting out of surveillance capitalism (the "Big Other") New Year's resolution

The solution is easy for me... I am changing nothing! My wife accuses me of having a tin-foil hat but I never opted in to the things that are intrusive on our privacy. I am slow to adopt new technology unless there is really a good/compelling reason to do so. I let the world at large be guinea pigs ...
