Re: backup Ten terabytes of data???

As you say, getting more hard drives is going to cost you a fair amount. This also doesn't solve the problem of losing the drives, theft or something like damage in a fire. As Dataman said, online storage will still cost a fair bit for that amount. However, I did read about a service called Backblaz...

Re: General graphical problems - Radeon X1950pro

Hey, I noticed in your other topic you said you solved the install problem by adding 'radeon.modeset=0' Are you still adding this in when booting? I had issue with my graphics card where I needed to edit the commands to get it to install. But I also needed to add the commands when booting up. When y...

Re: How to take screenshots in Mint13 Cinnamon? PrtSc notwor

It doesn't seem very user friendly to secretly save the screenshot to the picture folder. How is a user supposed to know this? And how are they supposed to know they need to press 'Ctrl' to save it to clipboard? Any users coming from another OS will generally assume one of two things will happen whe...

[Solved] Are there any Alpha/Beta phases for Linux Mint?

Hi I was wondering if there are any public testing phases for Linux Mint releases (Alpha/Beta). I can only find Release Candidates, so I'm guessing this is for people to test and then the final is released about a week later? I know in Ubuntu, after a final release, only critical/crash bugs are fixe...

Linux Mint is so awesome, I'm going to sponsor it :)

I've been using Ubuntu since 10.04 and been testing 12.10 for the last few months. I'm an avid fan of Ubuntu/Canonical and think they do a great job. Introducing Unity was always going to be a big decision and cause controversy. But I admire their commitment to move forward and do what they thought ...

Re: Security and Privacy compared to Canonical Ubuntu

Since I plan to use it for everyday usage I hope this will be at least as secure and private like ubuntu/xubuntu was..
