Re: Would Linux be more popular with LESS choice?

To be popular, Linux needs to have lots of high quality *finished* software and official driver support. It isn't going to happen unless there's going to be a single stable (with long term support - like in Windows XP long, not 3 years) main Linux to support. So... like RHEL? Red Hat has varying de...

Re: Do you run Linux as your sole operating system?

To be honest, what's the point of using Linux when one also uses Windows?

Re: Massive performance drop after upgrade from Mint 7 to 9

If that doesn't work you might try one of the other versions with a lighter desktop environment like the LXDE or Fluxbox editions. They are both designed for computer that are light on recourses. I have installed the LXDE environment and it works about 500% faster with almost Windows-like performan...

Re: Would Linux be more popular with LESS choice?

The amount of choice is only indirectly responsible for the low popularity. To be popular, Linux needs to have lots of high quality *finished* software and official driver support. It isn't going to happen unless there's going to be a single stable (with long term support - like in Windows XP long, ...

Re: Non Nerds who use Linux - Vote Here!

I'm a metalhead. I haven't even heard about nerds until about 2 years ago.

I can't say I love Linux, any more than I love my bookshelf or my chair. It's just a thing that I use.

Re: Do you run Linux as your sole operating system?

I run only Linux Mint 9. Windows 7 is way too expensive here (62 minimum hourly wages in Poland in comparison to 17 minimum hourly wages in USA) and generally, I don't like how Microsoft got much less user friendly after Windows 98 with all these "system restore disks", activations, and started to u...

Re: I can't access my HDD without root privilages

I'm not sure what this means: I have installed LXDE on Linux Mint 9 I installed the LXDE metapackage and then choose LXDE in the login menu. It worked normally. The problem started when I have booted the computer today and logged in with LXDE. /dev/loop0: LABEL="My Disc" TYPE="iso9660" /dev/sda1: L...

I can't access my HDD without root privilages [SOLVED]

Hello, I have installed LXDE on Linux Mint 9 and I can't access one of my HDDs without root privileges. In Gnome it would normally mount and I would have access to all files on it without root privileges but in LXDE I needed to mount with password and then I get a "permission denied" error. When I c...

Disabling font anti-aliasing by editing config file? (LXDE)

I have installed LXDE on my Linux Mint Isadora. It works much faster than GNOME but I have one problem. It anti-aliases all fonts which makes my eyes hurt and makes me sick. It seems that the version that I have installed doesn't have a font anti-aliasing setting. Which file should I edit to disable...

It appears that it has stopped happening, probably after the last update I downloaded. Thanks for the replies.

Re: If you think Linux is tough to install

I switched to Linux when my Win98 refused to work with my new computer's network card. I decided to not buy WindowsXP mainly because their new policies aren't user friendly. When I got Win98 OEM I could install and use it without any trouble after just entering a CD-key. I used it on three computer ...

Massive performance drop after upgrade from Mint 7 to 9

Hello, I'm new here. I was using Linux Mint 7 for past year and it was performing acceptably, though slower than Win98. When I have upgraded to Isadora, suddenly most of basic stuff started working slower - even all menus, Nautilus and Firefox. Usually, it's impossible to even use a VICE C64 emulato...
