Re: Windows XP Pro user trying to find the Linux for me

catilley, Linux Mint Gloria is the best choice for a linux beginner. I came some months ago from XP Pro, too. Tried Ubuntu and other distros first, but i'am more than happy with Mint and do not use XP anymore. If you are doing a new install with a second laptop, why not play around with Gparted, the...

Re: Boot from USB flash drive

When using usb-creator from the mint-usb, it asks for an cd or an iso-image to install. You can put either the iso-image on the usb partition and point to it during installation. This should work, didn't try it myself yet. I am still fiddling with mintupdate on the mint-pendrive. Does that work? Hin...

Re: Linux Equivalent???

I used tsclient terminal server client from the ubuntu repos.
menu-package manager-search: tsclient - install. menu -internet-terminal server client, enter ip adress, user pass and go.
Works perfekt with a win 2000/SAP server.
My wife doesn't see the differnce with the win application ;-)

Re: Goodbye Vista & Windows 7. Hello Linux Mint!

Experienced with DOS, WIN, NT & XP over many years, I tried to switch to Ubuntu 3 years ago mainly due to the LiveCD concept.Besides the LiveCD (perused as windows tool), Ubuntu couldn't convince me (and especially my family members) to a full switchover. When I came across Mint Gloria, with all...
