Re: Another Major Distro Chooses BTRFS

Well it maybe has purpose on server systems, but, for desktop users, BTRFS = bloated totally redundant file system , which makes Your OS main purpose to create backups, and backups of backups, and so on ... It remainds me of ZFS ... but you need a backup of the backup of the backup of the backup.

Re: Why not Secure-Mint?

Failsafe OOTB security is a pipe dream, it'll never happen in Linux or any other OS. In fact one of the best bits of advice I ever heard is that the WORST thing you can so re security is to install some app, or avenb OS, thinking it'll make you hack proof. Even if you have a machine that you don't ...

Re: Multiboot: Linux-only or with other systems: do you do?

I don't dual. each machine gets 1 os. Main machines have LMDE. server has debian, and the spare box that don't get much of any use still has Fedora on it (fedora 31 I think) also got a mac mini somewhere around here that has osx.

Yes, quite a lot of people still use 32-bit systems. They only stopped selling them in the late 2000s.
fascinating, I use "throw away" stuff and I had not come across anything unable to use 64 in well several years now.

Re: LMDE4 life and support

If you are concerned about breakage during and upgrade from 4 to 5 (when ever 5 comes out) just wait a couple months and see if any issues are reported, if none reported in the couple month wait, then might as well upgrade to 5. (what I will most likely do is upgrade after about 60 days or so with n...

Re: Phoronix article on "Ubuntu community friction, uncertainty": Glad LM still has LMDE

I think the future of Ubuntu is safe. Mee too, as safe as any bar perhaps RedHat. Debian has had their internal problems too. Redhat/Fedora Debian Arch I don't see going under any time soon. Ubuntu.... they have the power to stick around, however id say they are one spyware away from disaster.

Re: Mate vs Cinnamon

My introduction to Linux was in 2014, with LM Cinnamon on this old Acer P4 machine. After some initial issues with broken fonts and few other annoyances (maybe my own lack of experience at the time) I decided to switch to Mate - and I have loved it since then, because it just worked fine and got th...

Re: Kernel 5.8.0 appeared today

Part of why I moved my main machines over to LMDE (still using 4.19). was using fedora before that and with fedora you get a new kernel every day or every other day, gets kind of repetitive. Be interesting to see if we get a new 4.19 in the coming week since there's a new build on kernel.org. I kno...
