Cats.

I also love dogs but I voted for cats only because I like them more. ;)

Re:

Re: Mint 17.1 Xfce vs. W$ 10 Beta...NO CONTEST

The last compact (in real mean compact) Windows version was XP. Everything above XP is a huge bloat! Man, I can install a bloated distro in about 10 GB space but BLOATED! Windows Vista at least was beautiful (for me it was the best looking Windows ever) but still this is not enough to explain why th...

Re: 2015: The Year of the OpenBSD Desktop

My OpenBSD experience for sure was...strange. The install can be done by placing a rock above the enter key. :lol: Newbie friendly? Well the answer seems to be "yes". OpenBSD was really fast to install but I was not in hurry for the final view. Really the window manager looks bad by today's standard...

Re: How to install latest versions of all software

As xenopeek, said if you want more up to date software you have 2 choices: 1. Add projects PPA's and keep using Mint. 2. Switch to other distro like: 2.1 Source based - Gentoo (I believe the most up to date distro), Sabayon (Gentoo based for newbies basically); 2.2 Rolling distros - Arch (easy enoug...

Re: Flash Player is on painkillers

This worked! Strangely enough this minor version bump saved for now the Debian Flash Player version:

Code: Select all

Shockwave Flash 11.2.202.440
Thank you very much, zerozero! :)

PS: And just out of curiousity what is the Mint version of the Flash Player now?

Flash Player is on painkillers

I don't know if I'm the only one but at least on my side ( Iceweasel 31.4.0 with Flash Player 11.2.202.425 ) something bad is happening: Flash Player is dying! I believe that in Mint 17.1 there is already MF 35.0.1, I'm interested to know what is the Flash Player version there? Mine is already repor...

Re: 2015: The Year of the OpenBSD Desktop

/dev/urandom, yesterday I tried GhostBSD on VB and also FreeBSD... My God! :shock: On clear install GhostBSD (Mate desktop) uses only about ~65 MB RAM... Just compare that to Mint with Mate or any other Linux distro. The same RAM usage on Linux can only be compared with distros which use Fluxbox, Op...

Re: New browser from the original Opera developers

In the past I used to like Opera (I was Windows user back then and I tested the browsers for Windows a lot). But since 2008 I'm a die-hard Firefox fan because MF is still doing it's job right. Vivaldi is...well not my taste. :P And this interface is just not for a desktop machine.

Mint is a desktop distribution and that's why people like it. Android-x86 is the best example for a touch screen distro. :wink:

Re: Introducing A Friend To Linux

Zorin can become buggy as hell if he touch something he don't know (in my case tweaking Compiz). And also I experienced a lot "internal errors" just like in Ubuntu 13.xx. My best bet will be Mint Mate or Mint Cinnamon. If his PC is not very powerful - try Mint XFCE. But do not touch other distros. M...

I consider this. :) Yesterday I had a look at the OpenBSD FAQ and really the install process is not complicated but the Windows converts will say that they want a GUI. That's their problem.

Re: 2015: The Year of the OpenBSD Desktop

The year of OpenBSD - I agree, on the desktop - excuse me? In times when people are fanatic about security - OpenBSD can give popularity but on the desktop side is not the same. To be successful on the desktop - OpenBSD must be easy to understand and use OS. People are lazy? You are right here. Arch...

Re: What made Ubuntu so popular to begin with?

Ubuntu hit the right time to appear on the Linux scene. Because back in 2004 Linux was already catching up Windows. And as the others said - Ubuntu was "Debian made easy". If Ubuntu was released just 1-2 years later it would be just yet another Debian based distro.
