Re: Ubuntu wil standaard diagnostische data gaan verzamelen

. Dan even over The Gimp waar iemand het over had, je kunt je ook afvragen waarom iemand moet weten of ik The Gimp soms of vaak gebruik, dat is het privacy stukje. Iedereen kan een ander teken programma installeren mits The Gimp niet zijn ding is. Ach je kan ook overdrijven. Er is niks mis met anoni...

Re: Ubuntu wil standaard diagnostische data gaan verzamelen

Popcon standaard mee instaleren met als doel om een bepaald gebruikers gedrag te monitoren ongeacht wat ze er verder mee doen is gewoon een schending v.w.b privacy. Popcon kan wel degelijk nuttig zijn. Als uit die gegevens blijkt dat bv Gimp niet meer geberuikt wordt en er een ander programma geïns...

Will also switch from 32 bit to 64 so hopefully this solves the problem. Which Zorin version do you have,...

Re: Rec. calendars? Google calendar on linux?

I have messed with a lot of calendar apps over the years, Android/PC Windows/Linux: and if you want true ability to always sync up and present your calendar info on ALL devices, you just about have to use Google Calendar. That's not true. I use the calendar from my mail provider : Mailbox.org and i...

Re: what mail client do you prefer

Just installed Evolution. T-bird didn't work well with PGP/MIME lately. Evolution does the job. Besides that, Evolution don't need an extension to handle PGP keys.

I took a pile of screenshots of the old forum so I can readily compare it. This is because the icon (on the right in below scre...
