SSD Support

Do I need to worry about things like alignment and TRIM at this point when dual booting mint with Win7 on an SSD? or is this kind of thing done automatically when the system is setup.

Re: Website says LINUXMint is the ONE Linux for Noobs

Conversely I stopped reading after the usual FUD in step one. The thing too many people don't get when trying to market Linux is nobody likes people who princess and backstab EVEN if what their saying is true. Try behaving that way in real life and watch the way people slope away. Just because every...

It just makes no sense.
Hope nobody notices that the forum you pointed out as having no Linux users is for software that is only available for Windows. :lol:

Re: I thought Windows7 was supposed to be more secure

Your point makes no sense if you can't even find one user that's been infected. Look around some Linux forums and you'll find many naive Linux users but even among them you won't even find one that's been infected. To be honest you are approaching my post from a single minded POV as a result you ar...

These problems are generated by User Naivety and has nothing to do with Windows security.

Re: I thought Windows7 was supposed to be more secure

These problems are generated by User Naivety and has nothing to do with Windows security. Except that a lot of virii nowadays attack Windows via browser exploits, and there's not a lot the user can do if their antivirus software is out of date. In fact, that doesn't even help if the virus is new. Y...

Re: Galactic collection (GNOME & KDE)

I love the backdrop but the glass effect doesn't really work for me, I think I would prefer the logo minus the glass possibly in the bottom left position.

Re: I thought Windows7 was supposed to be more secure

Ok somebody has to be bold enough to restore some balance here. If you look at the list of Malware they are almost all Trojans this would indicate that the User, however unwittingly, chose to download it. If you downloaded a trojan in Linux and supplied the password to install the program it came bu...

Re: Is it worth upgrading to Helena over Gloria? [poll]

Just because a new version (Helena) of a distro is released; that doesn't mean that you must upgrade to the new one. If the version (Gloria) works for you ... stay with it. I know some people that use Debian, and Debian is now in version 5.0.3 and Debian 6 Squeeze will be released late next year. D...

Re: Mint 8 -- Quite disappointed. I'm going back to Ubuntu.

Not sure it will help to go back to Ubuntu as most of your problems will be inherited from there. Personally I made the decision to stick with Mint 7 because there is too much unproven technology in the latest Ubuntu and I expect that will be present in Mint also. I'm one of these people who have tr...

Easier Support Payments

Whilst I'm sure the desktop support plan is worth every penny, throwing down $300 in one go is beyond my reach(also have to factor in the cost of my divorce if I did). I'm not sure how well this would work from a business perspective, but for me a monthly standing order or per ticket payment would b...

I didn't realise this was across multiple machines. that is odd indeed! The fact that he is losing running applications also substantiates the memory theory too though.

Re: goodbye linux, i thought i knew thee well ...

I believe if you have verified the checksum and it was equal and you get burn error message on both CD and USB you have a memory fault. When the data is verified it is obvious copied to memory and checked there if there isn't a match, which is likely with faulty memory it gives the bad burn error. T...
