Re: why I hate Window (2016 edition)

1 - installation is linux-like. Windows automatically search for drivers and install them. Quick installation, relatively. This has always been the case even with XP - if Windows cannot find appropriate driver, it will try to use generic one from Microsoft. Windows XP can update drivers from Window...

Re: The 'is my Mint safe?' thread (after Feb 20th hacks)

I wish the mint representatives also comment on what is currently written on the Debian-Forums regarding this issue and the security concept of Mint in general. This really unsettles me at the moment and I'm seriously considering to dump Mint and move to a different distro... The problem that happe...

Re: You can't fully disable Win10 spying

Pretty much nobody talks about Android spying features but they are very similar to the Windows 10 ones. Microsoft/Windows 10 is pretty much the same as what Google/Android has been for several years. With Android and deviced with GPS and location turned ON by default - they have your exact location...

why I hate Window (2016 edition)

I have been running Linux (mostly Mint) since the autumn of 2014 - on my home computer. At work I am forced to run Windows. My sister runs Windows 8.1 because she plays lots of games from the Win Store. Anyway, 2016 started for with 2 very big re-freshes why I completely ditched Windows. My work com...

There is a solution against the spying : https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10 With all due respect but... the whole idea to install an operating system known to have spyware or backdoor built-in is totally disgusting to me. And even worse, the idea to run an antispyware tool to hopefully (no 100...

Re: Windows 10 is worse than 8

Gotta say though, Windows 10 is a very solid, robust OS. If only it wasn't for all those privacy violations, Windows 10 would actually be a fine OS. Tell this to someone who deals with Windows and Windows issues several days every week. It's the privacy and security which are the biggest Windows is...

Re: Read an article that said the NSA OWNS Linux

GNU/Linux is open source. You can't say this for Windows, Mac Android - all used a lot more than GNU/Linux operating system. Everyone can check the code and everyone can test the software Q/A. So, whatever they say, most can be checked. With Windows, most people cannot check them and to know exactly...

Re: Saying NO to forced W10---the Microsoft way

But for how long? Just wait for July then upgrades will stops by itself. What after? I suggest you will go to shop and purchase W10 (sooner or later). But this time for your own money. I seriously doubt that Microsoft will just stop pushing Win 10 after July/August 2016. There will be something els...

Re: LM 17.3 and Firefox

By the way, what do you think of Firefox ESR ? Why doesn't LM uses Firefox ESR - it seems definitely more stable to me. I prefer stability and since LM is all based on Ubuntu builds that are supposed to be stable (LTS) I guess Firefox should also be as stable as possible. Are these any specific LM c...

LM 17.3 and Firefox

Hi ! LM 17.2 was very very stable built for me (LM 17.2 XFCE + kernel 4.2). For the whole period I used it (several months), I only had 2-3 crashes. I upgraded to 17.3 XFCE (via clean install) these days and I am seeing these issues, too: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=213858 Howev...

Re: What is considered a "modern processor" to run LM today?

Hi Mr_Reed! I am not a GNU/Linux pro but still learning. From my experience with Linux Mint, *buntu and Debian, I can say I run recent Intel Celeron processor (cheap one - dual core, 2.13 Ghz) and system runs pretty much fine.

To disable the Windows 10 upgrade notification and download, use GWX Control Panel. You can download it from here: http://ultimateoutsider.com/downloads/.
