Dear scorp, It seems that people think in different ways and not all like you. Do you try to explain the superiority of linux? Yes I know that it is superior to Windows. Yes I know that it is worth devoting some time to learn it. As for the other people, if they have different viewpoints, they will ...

Re: LinuxMint vs Freespire

That's why serious people use Red Hat and/or SUSE :D Especially SUSE is almost "Windows-like" in that you only need to remember one command to configure everything: yast (or you may of course click onto the "System Settings" button in your GUI's menu). Red Hat is similar with it...

Re: LinuxMint vs Freespire

In my opinion such distros may look tempting for the absolute beginner, but it's the wrong approach: You don't learn anything there, instead you are allowed to continue your bad habits that you learned from Windows. Hence there is no question for me: A Linux distro trying so hard to hide and even d...

that's why I started this thread... I just can't decide :D If you have an old computer (older than 5 years) opt for gnome for sure. It needs less ressources. The rest is a question of preference.

Over the past few weeks we have seen a number of positive reviews and comments about Linux Mint, one of the unexpected distro surprises of this year. Although Linux Mint is really just a re-packaged Ubuntu with out-of-the box support for p...

Unless you are one of the big companies doing enterprise class stuff, you aren't making a lot of money with a distro. Not even enough for 1 salary. I know :? Same with services & support ... I am more optimist. In less that 10 days I had 5 customers and installed linux on the machines of three ...

Re: The Mint Café

Things are pretty good here as far as Linux is concerned. Ubuntu is very popular but I see a very active Debian community. There is a group of about 30 people that have been translating Ubuntu packages. I installed Bianca in Greek on a test disc and I was surprised to see how well the Ubuntu packag...

I my opinion that's the best solution for Mint. Having its own "kind of automatix" repository. One click installation and peace of mind.
