Yay - I did it... dual boot on laptop

Postby Indigo_myst » Thu Mar 17, 2011 9:54 pm

I finally took the plunge and did a dual boot on my laptop with Linux Mint 10 as main OS and horrid vista as the other one. Thanks Mint - couldn't believe how simple it was. Now to test some programs thru wine so I fully convert to just Mint.

Does anyone know of any really good HTML editors that are as simple and good as Dreamweaver? I like the ability to view the page in both code and display. Anyone used Amaya?

Cheers

Indigo

Thanks - I'll give it another go.

I tried it before in a previous distro but seemed glitchy so converted back to dreamwearer.

Thanks everyone. :D I am so glad for these forums, they are an excellent resource to us newbies and relative newbies. Will definitely have to try out the IRC chat sometime.
