Re: [POLL] Would iTunes be your main Linux music player?

Once got an iPod Nano as a gift from a relative sad to say it was a DOA (wouldn't run without plugging it via USB) and went to return it to the nearby Apple Shop where they offered to "replace" it if I pay 60% of the price :cry: .

For windows install an antivirus/security suite and keep it updated (was using Avast), install Firefox + NoScript For Mint install Firefox ...

With WIndows 7 it takes a bare minimum of 15gb excluding the suite With Linux Mint 9 the smallest workable /root partition I made was 4.5 without adding KDE pre-requisites (for K3B) With a 6-9gb of /root it has enough breathing space for adding and testing software.
