Share your Mint experience of Lenovo X240 laptop.

Hello, Minters. I want a general-purpose, daily-use, robust, durable laptop with all basic Mint software, plus image manipulation and very light video editing. Definitely DO NOT need the fastest cpu, maybe just an i5. In my research I found a very likely contender for my limited funds (around $150-U...

Re: PC Mag is now telling users about leaving Windows... For LM!

I know enough to really screw things up, but what I really like about Mint, is once it is "dialed in", I am done with it for the most part. 99% of my time is on my forums with Firefox, I do a lot of user support, and therefore, I have to have something that is rock solid, and there is nothing like ...

System76 is absolutely wonderful....but unaffordable for me (and I'm sure many others). Sigh :cry: .

Re: M$ selling snakeoil to Linux Users.

Personally, I do not want some half-baked company that is only interested in advertising dollars and collecting personal private information to port their software for linux. Microsoft hates linux and its just an evil plot to destroy our way of life. MS doesn't want to destroy our way of life. It w...

Greetings and guten tag, patfr!

Mint seems to have one of the classiest, overall most polite, and most knowledgeable forums in the linux world. I think you'll enjoy your stay here.

Re: Alarm Clock

Been using orage on xfce for years for all my reminders. I think it can install on any d.e. Has a bit of a learning curve, but super-useful practical features and of course specific date and time (no seconds). Lets you pick whatever audio you want the alarm to play, but pick a short sound file cuz i...

Re: Has anyone played around with MX Linux?

MX is my secondary OS. I've learned Linux from a user perspective since 2010 and tried several distros in those younger days, with Mint always being the "king." I really like the no-nonsense approach and lightness of MX. However, anyone using MX will need to become more familiar with Linux in genera...

Re: Why do newcomers stay with Mint?

I am not an expert, but I am no newcomer. I remember when Slackware was the go to distro, but I have used SUSE, Debian, Arc, Ubuntu, etc, over the years. Frankly speaking, I just want something that works as a general computer...nothing fancy. Linux Mint does that fantastically. Exactly!! Mint is f...

Re: Hello from Pittsburgh PA!

Hello Everyone! Thanks for saying HI. I love Linux Mint Mate. Currently running that as host. I just installed LMDE3 in VirtualBox. I am going to eventually migrate to that as my Host. I think it is a great idea to have a backup plan that doesn't rely on Ubuntu. I know I want to get away from Ubunt...

Re: It's like Microsoft is driving you toward Linux

Since 2010 I first started using Linux, gradually but quickly weaned off Weandows, finally totally dropped M$ on my own machines, and today am a happy camper! It is hard to imagine ever using Win-blows again. Well, it would be a nightmare, actually.

Re: Why oh Why can't we make Linux better looking

Regarding the title of this thread, I'm glad my wife didn't say that about me!! For 18 years I've worked for her like a solid Linux distro, and she's never distro-hopped, so looks aren't everything if all you need is a reliable workhorse. I just wish I could run some kernel updates on myself (withou...
