Re: Nice open source terminal font from...

Nice font, but I see colored smoke rising from your terminal. Are you overheating?

Re: The SOUND of my computer.

My old dual core AMD Athlon 64 just makes a constant and steady refreshingly light whoosh of air. Even the graphics card never gets annoying.

My 2007 Hyundai constantly reminds me to trade her in, which I always ignore.

Re: Distrowatch stats for LM?

If you add up all the Ubuntu flavors, the total would actually be above Manjaro. That's looking at a 6 month span.

Re: Distrowatch stats for LM?

MX Linux has gotten some very good reviews lately, including that from Dedoimedo, which seems to be his favorite at the moment. It is a fine distro.

However, Distrowatch rankings have very little meaning and can be easily skewed by fans clicking on their favorite.

Re: Your fallback option in case Mint ever disappeared

I've tried most of Ubuntu's offerings (plus many others) over the years and the one I'd felt most comfortable with was XFCE. Not as pretty as Mint Cinnamon but stable and easy to use.

Re: What type of computer or device do you primarily use?

I have a couple of desktops that I put together, mostly from discarded or hand-me-down parts from my son who is a gamer. One is a 32 bit, but still runs nicely with Peppermint OS. I think desktops are more ergonomically friendly, at least for me, and I like a bigger monitor than most laptops have. P...

Do they grow less strong when they are failing or do they just go Kaput? :)

Re: User Tracking: Android vs. iOS, Google vs. Apple

On my phone, a Moto G, wifi is turned off when in Airplane Mode - although it can be turned on separately.

I have data turned off at my phone company's control panel, except on rare occasions when I might need it (and for economic reasons as data usage is charged separately). I have Ting mobile.

LibreOffice (especially Calc). I keep a lot of personal information, such as my banking, on protected spreadsheets.
Rainlendar calendar.
FIrefox (well secured) for banking and commerce and Chromium for general browsing.

AZgl1500, What's the difference between that and putting it in Airplane Mode until ready to use or receive calls?

Re: Google to charge Europe

An Android phone without Google apps would be great! I imagine the app vendors will not be happy without the Google Play store being available for Europe.
