Re: Mint 14,Mate and Cinnamon edition: which one is more sta

Greetings! In the same vein as the others, I have both a "problem" and a question. First of all, let me say that, IMHO, Ubuntu reached it's evolutionary peak with 8.n, and it's been all down hill since then. Also, IMHO, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was the last usable version. I wanted away from Ubuntu, but did...

Change default window size when opened

First of all : I discovered Mint/Cinnamon, when Linux Format crowned it King of the Distributions. Since I was becoming increasingly unhappy with where Ubuntu was heading, (The Twilight Zone?), I wanted a change. Mint 13 and now Mint 14 has now become my Linux of Choice - and I have discovered that...

Mint as a thin server platform?

First : I have already spent a considerable amount of time researching these fora with respect to this topic prior to posting. I woud gratefully appreciate not getting replies like "Go to Ubuntu and. . ." If I wanted to do this under Ubuntu, I would not be posting here. Additionally, I have already...

Re: Why Can't You Host Your Own Domain Names?

Short answer: Of course you can host your own domain. You just cannot be your own domain registrar. Longer answer: It depends on what you mean by "host". If you are talking about moving from a fee-for-service hosting company that provides server services, you absolutely can provide the physical serv...

Re: Better than Google, looking for best search engine

Actually, all these suggestions are good ones - and like one of the earlier replies said, it's really a matter of taste. IMHO, rather than use a single search engine - like Google, yahoo, or bing - I prefer a meta-serch site that searches a whole host of search engines. The two I can recommend are d...

Re: Mint 13 Live CD/DVD hangs during boot

(shaking head in wonder) I can't believe that NOT A SINGLE PERSON tried the Mint 13 live CD/DVD on a system with an NVIDIA card prior to release? You'd think that trying a RC with different brands of video cards would be test #2, right after the "Verify optical disk does not burst into roaring flame...
