cracked account prevention (offtopic)

Can I change my e-mail address or delete my current account? After the last news about "external attacker" I feel bad and vulnerable... like never before (even if my passwords were always weak).

If I'm not wrong, a kernel upgrade (3.2.0-35-generic to 3.2.0-37-generic ). I need to test more, because now CS Source from Steam Ubuntu, is not dropping a game to Desktop with a "read-only" fs error, now it is hanging (freezing) on black screen with a console cursor and a red light (not blinking) o...

Re: [SOLVED!]mate vs cinamon vs xfce vs kde vs gnome

OK. So, better choice on Mint 13 is Cinnamon instead of Xfce build?

Again about 64 bit vs 32 bit. I saw some encoding, editing and booting tests on both "bit" editions of different Linux distributions. The difference on speed and time is very little. I thought it would be bigger...

Re: [SOLVED!]mate vs cinamon vs xfce vs kde vs gnome

My graphic card is Palit GTS 250 1GB DDR3 E-Green (is based on nVidia GeForce GTS 250 chip).
I heard about Cinnamon that is not so stable like Xfce. Is that true? Or that was only on first versions of Cinnamon?

I thought you were going to install Linux Mint 13 Xfce soon? Anyway, Python 2 is needed by a lot of your system's core programs and utilities. Those won't be compatible with Python 3! The best way to wreck your installation is replacing Python 2 with Python 3 :shock: Yes I will install Mint 13 i386...
