Good luck! maybe my queston should've been "d...

Re: Dropbox's New Rules

I received a message that my dropbox will cease to work soon with my LMDE installation (as I'm sure many did). What are folks using for a replacement? Or is there a work around that I'm unaware of? Can you give the details of the message? message below - installed LMDE with calamares installer - do...

is your LMDE installed on either ext 3 partitions OR with ext 4 partitions ?.
- as Dropbox will only support Linux on ext4 partitions.
installed with the included calamares installer

Re: Fan activity

What, exactly, is 'interface software'? Will this speed up XFCE version of LM or just Cinnamon?

Fan activity

I seem to get more fan noise/activity with LM 18.2 than with, say, Ubuntu even though LM seems to be using less resources. Any thoughts on why?

Is Linux Mint as secure as it could be?

This is a legitimate question, please don't take offense. Just trying to understand why some say Linux Mint is not as secure as it could be. One developer told me Linux Mint uses out of date tool kits. I'm not smart enough to know if this is factual or not. So, in your opinion, is Linux Mint as secu...

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

I used CAD software on SunOS / Solaris with Sun Micro hardware for 25 yrs at my job. Many years ago, seeing how solid and secure *nix OS was at work, decided it should be more than adequate at home as well.

Is there a posting describing installations / uses of Linux Mint in the wild? Companies, libraries, schools, etc. Just curious how Linux Mint is used around the world.
