Re: deb installers versus AppImages?

AppImages will eat a lot of hard-drive space especially if you use many of them, but on the other hand if you encounter dependency conflicts with installed Deb. packages AppImages is a way of working around that problem if one of the conflicting programs is offered as an AppImage.

Re: best method of making persistent USB version on Linux Mint.

Yes, it is safe and this is the method I use to create persistent USB drives. Thanks for your reply. Not being familiar with the partitioning and structure that this utility puts on the persistent USB can you give me some guidance as to what percentage of the USBs space to use for persistence ? The...

As far as I know, you won't be able to add Win7 to your boot menu because of the difference in install method. I do have a compatibility system and I am able to boot W7 via direct disk from bios boot ...

Re: Can I install 20.0 without Password(s)?

Well, just for starters you can disable login and password at boot. It is possible to "hack" things so you always have root privileges, but, it is highly and extremely ill-advised as you will soon get feedback from others on. It will put your system at risk for mistakes! It will also put y...
