    [Linux Mint_] Re: Lmde

    I use LMDE as my primary OS. It's next update pack will be based on testing (Jessie). It's a stable enough OS and as long as Mint stick with it, it will never need a re-install. Suits me.

    Re: Zorin OS?

    It should be, it's based on Ubuntu, if you use Zorin 6 it's based on 12.04, so should be rock solid.

    I'll try that, thanks. Do I have to do this from the last distro installed - the last distro to install and configure Grub? Which in my case is Debian Wheezy.

    [OtherOS_] Re: Disease!!

    I guess I'll keep the partitions then. Just one thing, how do I edit Grub to select a default os so my wife doesn't have to navigate the minefield to get to LMDE that she has started to use.

    It's a pity that some distros have to be "difficult". After all what is a computer OS for ultimately? To actually do stuff with, like office type work, gaming, web browsing, HTPC et al? If so then it...

    Did you not check the link and actually see the live/install dvds? And a separate list with non-free firmwares included?

    The Gnome live dvd only works in fallback mode for me, but the KDE version works ok. Thinking of wiping Ubuntu 12.04.2 for it (gasps of horror!!)

    [ubuntu] Dual to Triple Boot

    Is it possible to simply add a third os to this laptop?
