Hi, gm10.

Goal achieved. Trina is no more. Can you mark the thread as [solved] now? Next it will be locked in order to prevent someone from coming up and questioning whether Tricia were a good choice.

Cheers,
Karl

I had already mentioned the change in the OP and the subject line, but since this is a chat and not a support thread I don't think I should mark it [SOLVED]. Feel free to do it anyway, however, as well as lock the thread if you think it's needed. Personally I don't see the harm in discussing it further but I'm not fazed one way or another, to me this has indeed run its course. There have been a number of good suggestions for LM 20 in here as well though. :)

hmmm Tricia... are you sure that is a good choice?????

Don't worry karlchen I will see myself out.

I am happy as long as the team keep doing what they are doing. I have had such a trouble free run with Mint both my personal installs and for others that even if they called it Tabatha Edwina Finkelstein III I'd call it Mint 19.3. Mainly coz I ain't good with names and can't even recall what 19.2 is designated.

I suspect this thread can at least claim strong influence.

Seems sorted now. But is Tricia a her, him, or they?
Seems appropriate to ask,
perhaps more difficult to answer though.

Tricia clearly is Patricia, hence female. <period>

Nope, not difficult at all. Familiarize yourself with the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. A must for geeks, strongly recommended for non-geeks.

Tricia McMillan is very female :) In another universe the same woman (the same?) is called Trillian, but I think Zaphod made that up :mrgreen:

Tricia is a definitely a better one, unlike Trina which could easily become Tina (19.2) with just a simple typo.
