Re: How good & effective is Timeshift?

@Thrashzone2 - You can very much use an MBR layout drive with timeshift just as much as GPT. The crux of the matter is actually you just need a partition formatted to btrfs, ext4 or xfs and not NTFS or FAT32 for it to store snapshots on. Hi, You prove my point additional formatting needed for some ...

Re: How good & effective is Timeshift?

Hi,
Only issue I found was you need to format the hdd/.. in linux before you can actually use timeshift.
Can't just use a mbr disk like windows not sure you can just use a gpt disk either so no timeshift doesn't just work :-)

Re: [Solved] Dual Boot with W10 - Avoiding UEFI Issues

Hi, Sorry but harmony with win-10 and linux is not possible lol Beside think you'd need to disable fast start features in win-10 Only way it's remotely possible to have any sort of harmony is if you use a device like this to keep them far apart by removing one and inserting the other you want to use...

Re: 19.3 to 20 - complete failure, extremely angry

Only thing I worry about is the grub sludge linux insists on adding and getting rid of that unnecessary crap off ssd/ hdd's. Every Linux distro I've loaded on my machines uses grub. What do you consider "grub sludge"? Hi, Grub on a non linux installed ssd = a data ssd that was not connect...

Re: What Don't You Like about Linux Mint?

Hi,
About the only good thing so far is I guess an update fixed the no wired internet connection issue I was having on startup
Guessing someone finally added the newest z490 intel ethernet drivers.

This is a quote from another forum i visit, where they were discussing Linux and how secure it was. Just wondering... "The kernel was not build with security in mind. It doesn't distrust other parts in the system. The user space has no isolation. I can't see why people consider it "more s...

Linux Mint is incredibly slow when it comes to any sort of browser game. I'm trying to launch a browser game for a project I'm working on, but it's so pathetically slow that I just can't do anything (.io games, etc.). I've heard that Windows has a "High Performance" settings to speed up t...
