Re: Should I Partition my Home folder

I have a separate /home which is helpful for installing same flavor to /root like Mint 14 Cinnamon to Mint 15 Cinnamon or KDE 14 to 15 by installing clean on /root and format assigning /home but not format for upgrading same family distro's. And I always use a partition backup program like Redo Bac...

Re: Possible Changes In Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander

For you perhaps...for me...just the opposite....Chrome rocks...but it is unfortunate that they can't change it to Chrome instead of Chromium because it is inferior in that it is a stripped down version of Chrome... Why do people always say it's a stripped down version? There's very little differenc...

Re: It's nice to be back in Mint!

This sounds familiar. :) Tried so many other distributions including red hat and slackware based distros. Nothing beats debian based distros. In particular, Ubuntu based distros. Maybe that's why my company, Kroger, (you may have heard of them) uses Debian in every store. It just works. Mind you, t...

Re: It's nice to be back in Mint!

I remember going through my distro hopping days. I tried an ungodly amount of distros over the years. I would always have my main install of a Debian variant, but would use other hard drives for testing. Guess what? Nothing beats the Debian Family of Linux. Others may wish to argue otherwise, but af...

Re: Fedora 18

"If being a beta tester is not for you, consider using something else." Wasn't considering it for myself. Those quotes were from others. And being a full number release don't think that means Beta version? Just sharing the news making it available to other's that may be considering it. . Numbers do...

Re: Linux is Not Windows

These days, installing Linux is easy in most cases. I work with a mentally challenged person at work who was able to install linux mint all by himself. That, all by itself, says A LOT about how far linux has come. Plus, I know a bunch of people I've installed linux for 2 or more years ago that are ...

Re: Fedora 18

Yep some of the negativity comes from just too rushed to release and buggy? That is the impression I'm getting from what I have read around so far. . Fedora exists for Red Hat. It never claimed to be a rock solid distro made for the average person. New things are introduced into Fedora, and after e...

Re: What if Ubuntu goes away

I doubt Ubuntu will ever go away completely, although I bet they said the same thing about Mandrake back in the day. But Ubuntu has been around 9 yrs now and still going strong. I doubt it's going anywhere fo...

Re: Linux disappointed me

I'm disappointed by the lack of out-of-the-box stability and functionality. On YOUR computer. Linux has been nothing but rock solid for me and everyone I've installed it for. I switched to linux because I had nothing but problems with windows. It can go both ways ya know. I've done 100's of install...

A little story

Becoming an Ex-Ubuntu Member (I don't mean forum member/actual Ubuntu Member/ 10,000 posts) was the best thing I ever did. After years of computer overload, my brain snapped. And to be honest, I really don't care for ANY tech sites any more. Hence, my exclusion from Ubu. I was one of the originals i...

Re: Poll: Desktop environments

I'm using lxde right now, but who knows how long that will last. I get bored every few months and use something else. All DE's are good to me, and it really doesn't matter what I use.

I know most of you don't care, but I was a 10,000 post person on ubuntu.com., and did bug reporting for years, tried to help, but I've found I no longer wanna be a geek and sell/fix/figure out problems. I still love linux, and I know it well and I'm going to use it for myself, but there's no more lo...

Re: Why do Windows users get such a bad rap?

I can think of many reasons why Windows users get a bad rap. First - they can be lazy. They know there is an alternative out there that will free them of viruses, malware, security breaches, and from the wallet draining software applications they are enslaved to. But, they won't take the time to re...
