LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Is this Vista again? I thought you people had it all figured out!!! Everyone says "Linux is better than Windows"--well then PROVE IT! I shouldn't have to type in my password 15 times a day just to browser email. This is what's wrong with Linux. No wonder it never conquered the desktop!!! All you Linux fanboys keep your toy OS in your parents' basement, but fix your problems with your precious Linux before you try to go mainstream again! And while you're at it, don't tell me to use the command prompt! This isn't the 1980s, people!
At Least Windows Makes Sense! Now that Windows 10 is FREE, Linux has nothing going for it!
I'm trying Linux for the first time and I really don't like having to type my password in so many times. Is there a way to reduce the number of times I have to do this, or is there a reason that it's set up this way?
See a difference? The first one (I've seen in various iterations a dozen times over) will get no useful replies, the second one will at least get a friendly explanation why authentication behaves in a certain way. Someone might even reply with how to reduce the number of authentication requests while only lowering security slightly (though I agree with Pjotr that I, at any rate, will not explain how to do this on the Mint forums, which are geared towards newbies who haven't learned much about Linux yet. If it were somewhere like the Arch forums where the OP isn't going to be a newbie and understands Linux, then I might reply...)
