With NoScript, these cross-platform JavaScript attacks will never be able to make it through to your browser. Yay! And for the browser specifically, the L...

Another refugee from the land of Ubuntu

Hi all: I have used Ubuntu for quite some time, and did some time in openSuse's RPM world. Well KDE never really did it for me. Gnome 3, we all know how that went! So the recent desktop mess left me looking at MS-Windows :oops: I have known of Mint for some time so thought I would try it once more. ...
