tar comes from Tape-And-Rewind which stacks the files end-to-end to send them to a serial storage device, like a tape recorder.
Not quite right, it comes from tape archive

Re: Changing Droid to LMDE2

If your samsung has an Intel / AMD 32 or 64 bits processor, you might have a small chance. Check the xda-developers forum.

You have more chance to install LineageOS

Re: The "fox" is buying the hen house???

Yes, agree. If M$ buys up Github, M$ will be able to spy-on or "steal" projects and ideas on Github, They can do that now as a lot of OpenSource projects have there code there, free to download.
