Re: People's legitimate Win 10 Pro systems are being disabled...

Last night I was bored so I downloaded the VM for Windows 10. I noticed you could try out Photoshop CC for 7 days. I looked to see how much it would cost to buy the program. Appears you can't :roll: You have to pay a monthly or yearly fee. They can SHOVE that

Re: Dropbox? What is it?

I stay away from all Cloud Storage options, because transferring files between my devices chews up ALL of my monthly data allotment. I only use WiFi transfers from cellphone to PC, so Dropbox is useless to me. I used Google for a while, until I realized that my data allotment was gone by the 12th d...

Re: What the f**t (font)

The only real problems I've ever had with Linux is the printing. Windoz does a good job with printing IMHO. I've got so I print out to a PDF file and then print it and I don't have any issues doing this. I think If I upgraded to a newer HP laserjet I would probably have less issues printing. I've ne...

If you still have the phone number report it to this website ... https://scammerblaster.com/ I called the phone number on my 'scam the scammer' machine and wasted around 30 mins of their time. They were a fake Microsoft Support center that gets on your PC and trashes it and then want money to fix it...

Re: Linux Mint 18.3 is better than 19 ... Why? I hope main developer see this

I'm in the same boat really. My computers all run great with 18.3 and I'm sticking with it until the end. I do realize that Mint 19 doesn't suck ... it's my old hardware that is going to suck in a few years :mrgreen:

Re: WaterFox update (Today)

I just pulled the repository for the old WaterFox download and forgot about it. I see that WaterFox is in the Mint repository now so soon it will update from it and hopefully won't crash again.

I stated in a post that developers really don't give a sh** about forum posts...so your opinion is pointless.
If that's true, isn't this whole thread even more pointless?
