Facebook is The Social Media Monopoly. It is a shame that there is no reasonable alternative that also protects privacy and information on its network.

Re: Am I the only one who still plays CDs?

I believe in supporting what you like, whether it's FOSS projects or bands. So over the years, I've collected a decent library of music CDs. I usually just buy cheap used ones on smile.amazon.com but I just think it's more cool to have the CD. Plus I appreciate the better sound quality of a CD over...

No CD / DVD burning program in Linux Mint 18.3 MATE ? [solved]

Today I had to burn a DVD. 1 problem, I could not find a burning program in the menus.
Is there really no burning program installed by default or did I overlooked it?
Btw, I installed Brasero, so I got the job done ;)

I'm not shure if I'm going to delete my facebook. I still have some friends on it that don't want to move to something else, and I want to stay in touch with them.
So probably I'm going to deactivate and only log in once a month or with birthdays / holidays
