Re: Mint vs Ubuntu - Why Mint?

They are freely using the Ubuntu sources, which is very generous of Canonical. No, that's not generous at all. That's simply the point of Free Software. Everyone should be able to modify and redistribute it. Free Software is a collaborative effort. You gain something, you give something back, accor...

Re: Mint vs Ubuntu - Why Mint?

I don't want to have anything to do with this shady Canonical company. I would probably rather go back to Windows before using Ubuntu. I just can't stand how they are trying to make big $$$ by taking everything they can get from GNU/Linux/Debian while giving almost nothing back in return. That's to...

Re: Mint vs Ubuntu - Why Mint?

Well, I use LMDE 2 instead of Ubuntu or the regular Mint because 1) it has proven to be much faster and more stable to me and 2) I don't want to have anything to do with this shady Canonical company. I would probably rather go back to Windows before using Ubuntu. I just can't stand how they are tryi...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Fragezeichen Why aren't more people upset about this? We would not stand for a Landlord doing those type searches of our apartment or home? We would feel that is invasion of privacy.

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Also keep in mind that most of the scanning of files/folders on your Windows 10 system is done in order to place said files/folders in the "cloud". That's how OneDrive works. You can completely uninstall OneDrive without any negative impact on your system. OneDrive was also enabled by def...

If you were using xbox , 360 xbox, you would know, that xbox is a SERVICE model, and with Windows 10 MS switched this OS to a SERVICE model. Why did they do this? Because how it treats your equipment and what is on your equipment. MS banned millions of xbox's in the past , with multiple BAN waves i...

Re: Mint as the alternative to windows

The incentive to big companies is the cost savings over Microsoft installs. This is a bit of myth. Installing Windows costs almost nothing; they'll use pre-built images so only the initial image build and test has significant costs. The cost of the Windows license (heavily discounted to them) is of...

Re: Mint as the alternative to windows

Joe Soap doesn't want to type a load of command-line instructions, and Joe Soap's manager certainly isn't going to allow him to. I don't know about Joe Soap, but I think his manager would actually want him to learn at least the basics of CLI since it's way more efficient in a lot of situations. You...

Re: This time I *really* can't believe the Windows fanboys!

Yeah for a normal user this might not be that severe if they scan your files and can do whatever they want with the gathered information.. But imagine a business running Windows 10 and Microsoft having access to all the confidential data while being allowed to share it with their "partners"...
