Re: What's Your Opinion on Self-Driving Cars?

I'm not entirely convinced about the technology yet. It would be cool, if the car always stays within any given speed limit, so ppl would be forced to drive nicer. I live on the countryside and on this road the speed limit is 80 km/h (about 50 mph) and drivers keep driving too fast, earlier this yea...

Well, thats good news. :D
No need for LM in a virtual box then.
I'll create a third account on my laptop for testing in Terminal.
Thank you. :D

Through things done as said standard, non-administrator user, no. What you can of course break is the user account itself.

Nice! :D
So its safe to have a user, only for experimenting with terminal?
Thats a relief, when I'm my mac, I tend to get distracted to other things.

Nearly a year has passed...

And I'm still really impressed by LM. Although I have been really cautious with internet usage and spent most of the time in this forum. I've read a lot, and only commented a few times. Broken my system once and reinstalled a couple of times, all in all a learning experience(Thank you for helping us...

Re: [SOLVED] Is it possible to clone Mint to a mSata drive?

So I started from scratch again, another opportunity to learn some more. :D And during install I made a root partition, swap partition and a home partition on the msata drive.

Re: Is it possible to clone Mint to a mSata drive?

The msata disk(240GB) is purely for the OS, and maybe swapfile? That's a huge waste of an SSD. You might consider reserving 32-38GB for the OS and swapfile on one partition, and allocate the rest to /home. As for the HDD, use it for data that doesn't change much, as well as backups. As for cloning,...

So I just installed a msata disk in my laptop and chose to do a fresh install and wiped my old HDD, which probably wasn't one of my best ideas. The computer feels really snappy. But, maybe I should have backed up my /home ... :? I'm considering to partition the old HDD(500GB) into two partitions, 1 ...

Re: Did you expect that you'll use Linux?!

No. Not really. I started using DOS and Windows 3.1, which was fine and only really for gaming. Then went on to Win95, which was also fine for me. Then I started studying Computer Science and I chose a (optional) class about Linux, which was interesting. It was all about Red Hat, but at the time in ...
