But maybe I just have to get used to the idea that Mint uses RAM MUCH more efficiently than Win.
It does. :)

for basic word processing LibreOffice is a good product.
Also for advanced word processing, provided that you stick to its native .odt file format. :mrgreen:

Re: Softmaker Freeoffice 2018

I love LibreOffice but it doesn't always handle Windows files well. I have had no issues using Softmaker Office over the past year. Docx in particular has not always worked well for me in LibreOffice, leaving artifacts and other formatting issues where Softmaker/Freeoffice works dependably all the ...

Re: Softmaker Freeoffice 2018

Personally, I'm practical in these matters. As a rule, I prefer open source and what's in the official repo's. But that's just a general rule, for which I make exceptions from time to time. Does FreeOffice have decisive advantages over LibreOffice for me? If so, I might try it, although it's apparen...

That might account for weird behaviour of your Grub: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/fatalmistakes#TOC-Don-t-use-Grub-Customizer (item 7, right column) If not, the usual cause of this behaviour is a multiboot system with at least...

Re: RAM limit and diagnostic tools

There's no practical RAM limit for 64-bit Linux Mint.... The theoretical limit for 64-bit should be 2^64 = 16 777 216 TB (yes that's Terabyte). In reality the amount of RAM is probably limited to 2^48 aka 256 TB of RAM. Unless you're into supercomputing (all, or nearly all, supercomputers in the wor...

Good measure. A small discomfort, but it helps to build confidence in the security of the Linux Mint ecosystem. :)
