Re: android box to Mint - remote desktop

Thank you for the reply. Ill certainly look into that. It would be a big help in configuring things on the android box from my computer instead of having to go upstairs, fire up the tv and android box and fiddle around with the remote. Too time consuming ;)

My older clients usually say "Hold on. Im writing that down" when I tell them something about linux mint. I used to laugh at that but now I use a legal pad all the time to write things down. I think I have become my older clients - lol...

Re: M$ selling snakeoil to Linux Users.

I think Linux forced M$ to up their game. Unfortunately, M$'s game does not involve competition and fair play. It just means more dirty tricks and revenue from scamming M$ users. M$ windows could have been so much more if they only put some heart into it. Instead they got greedy and turned it into a...

Re: M$ selling snakeoil to Linux Users.

Personally, I do not want some half-baked company that is only interested in advertising dollars and collecting personal private information to port their software for linux.

Microsoft hates linux and its just an evil plot to destroy our way of life.
