Re: Linux is Not Windows

You should stick around a bit, it might be fun. :D I kinda doubt that. :( ... In my experience Linux Mint attracts some really strange users who have weird ideas about what they are entitled to and what not. And some here are very sensitive b****es it seems, it's ridiculous. I found the thread I me...

What, you are supposed to be some kind of flamer? Based on the many many many complaints Clem here (yes, the Clem here ...) supposedly was getting back in 2007 ... yes!? It seems so. But you know --and it's quite funny-- I have not changed one little bit. And over at the Ubuntu forums the admins an...

Oh yes!! Definitely. They have many more admins and forum mods too. I found the Ubuntu forums to be quite comfortable and pleasing place in the past 2.5 years since my departure from here :D

Either that or they are locking them as fast as I can post. Well, if they are locking your threads then you are definitely doing something wrong ... Maybe you should work on your style? Trust me, I know what I am speaking of .... ask the others here, they know me too well --- hehehehe :twisted:

Re: THE MINT CAFE

By the way I just logged out of Facebook. I don't like it very much. It's perfectly OK as a "Communication Tool", e.g. keeping in touch with others, etc. I strictly use it for that and stay away from all the quizzes and all the stupid games there. If you do that and purely see it as some form of we...

I assume you use the GNOME edition, the Mint "full" release? You can right-click on an icon and then select "stretch icon" and then expand or reduce the size as you need.
