Re: BIOS upgrade

Thanks. I downloaded both. Temporary solution is for me to install win7 on spare hdd, flash the bios and wipe the win. I have plenty of time.

Re: Help: How to fix (ima: Error Communicating to TPM chip)

Good luck. I have that message since I installed v20. It does affect boot time, but that's all. Just ignore. I do not have TPM in my bios.

Re: AppImage

They had that idea 4 years ago- I guess, did not work. Wine is useless to me - will not run programs I need. Look like the VB will be in my Mint for a while. I do not mind VB - runs very good all the programs I need. Maybe guys from Oracle will come up with solution.

Re: AppImage

The best "thing" about appimage is that I can try software and if I do not like, just delete. Still can not figure out the icons. Some come with and some do not. I think that appimages are the future of Linux.

AppImage

I download few appimages and all of them work. Just wander if all Linux distros will make their software available in this format. AppImageHub have few(200+) software. Their size is 1/4 of Flatpak.

Re: I'm confused why there are so many video editors? Which do you use?

I try all of them. The most promising ( and difficult) is Cinelerra, but for most video editing I use Vegas Video. Win7 in VB. Runs good with 16G of ram and i5.
