Re: Ubuntu wants to start charging for use of repros by Mint

If Ubuntu ends up being "Linux- based " instead of "just Linux," what's wrong with that? Was there so much hate when Linux-based but proprietary Android came along? No, because that's perfectly okay under the license. Red Hat, Oracle, Google - and maybe Canonical someday, all "guilty" of the same t...

Anyone else having trouble with AdBlock on Mint?

Hey peeps :) I have AdBlock Plus with 2 subscriptions on here (EasyList and Facebook Annoyances Blocker). I have also whitelisted linuxmint.com and duckduckgo.com :wink: Aaaaanywho, on Windows all the adds on Facebook went bye-bye even with just EasyList I think, but on here I get broken images on t...

Re: Saucy Salamander is a fiasco: The worst Ubuntu release e

Yes I guess you are right but Ubuntu shouldn't pick at Mint because UBuntu inself is based on Debian and it uses its binary packages!! :D But these guys are mad at us!They are hypersensitive! I have criticized Mint 14 and still think it is a bad release but hey I'mstill using Mint and I like it :D ...

Re: Getting Flash to work on Linux Mint

I was very pleased when I discovered it, I can tell you! This laptop is old and struggles a bit with normal YouTube even sometimes at the lower resolutions. But with SMTube I just crank up the resolution and full screen it! Yeah, pretty amazing. The machine I tested it on is one I had to put an old...

You know, I keep reading this thread as "I still use Wizadora"

It was a British kid's show in the '90s!

I don't think she used Linux though :(

Tor rocks!

I also like Freenet, I2P, StealthNet and some others but... Tor is probably the most anonymising!

Re: Ubuntu wants to start charging for use of repros by Mint

Nilla - I see your point, and I suppose Ubuntu are still giving back to the open source community in other ways and not just freeloading, right? Part of open source is volunteering and collaboration. Freeloading from it would be awful and worse than MS and Apple, but I'm aware that the GPL exists to...

Faster booting, faster poweroff, faster overall, Compiz running out-of-the-box and less buggy, less other upstream bugs, no theme inconsistencies between GTK+2 and GTK+3 (because no GTK+3 here).
But then why not use MATE or XFCE? :)

Re: Saucy Salamander is a fiasco: The worst Ubuntu release e

Guys come on, relax we're only posting our opinions. I also dislike OSX and 8, and enjoy 7, XP, Android, KDE distros and much more. Not everyone can enjoy everything and different people will inevitably have different views, especially because many come to Mint due to being disillusioned with Ubuntu...

It's probably secure enough... but I'd advise caution!

Re: Saucy Salamander is a fiasco: The worst Ubuntu release e

Good thread, dude. It's hard to know what to make of it all, really. Back about 7 years ago or something I first tried Ubu and loved it. Then skip ahead, Karmic Koala was probably the release I got most excited about simply due to timing, and I downloaded it on the day, helped to seed it, etc. By th...

Re: Saucy Salamander is a fiasco: The worst Ubuntu release e

It's sad to see Ubuntu going this way. I remember back in the days of Karmic and before it was a wonderful, natural-looking, exciting new OS full of promise and a real alternative to the over-commercialised, greedy and "cold" (business-like) other operating systems such as OSX and Windows. But... lo...
