    Re: I think my Linux experiment is... Over.

    That sums things up for me. But for the most part I don't go around recommending Linux to anyone. I figure the ones who'll take to it will probably find out about it and come around to it on their...

    Re: Why do you, or people keep pictures?

    I don't know -- I'm another one who doesn't use any dedicated photo organizing software.



    I'm kinda surprised by this question. My initial reaction was to ask, "Why not??" Or, from the old Bud...

    Re: Anyone else try Abiword recently?

    Yeah, BL is using Stable, and Abiword is available.

    I do have Abiword installed here, but in Arch. I haven't been using it much, but it's good enough for what I need.

    [all variants] Re: A good music player?

    Ha-ha, I'm an 'old dawg' -- good luck with that! But anyway I've been using Audacious for the past few years. I've spent time with lots of other Linux music/media players over the years; I was...
  9. Re: What is your fav DE (desktop environment) or WM (window managers)

    Ah! Yeah, I use a vertical left oriented panel myself! With Xfce, but also with other DEs/WMs, even KDE Plasma.
  10. Re: What is your fav DE (desktop environment) or WM (window managers)

    I don't have a single favorite DE or WM. I regularly use Openbox, Xfce, LXQt, Fluxbox, KDE Plasma, and GNOME. Over the years, I've enjoyed several others. Sometimes it seems like my favorite is...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: What is the each command's different merit between su and sudo?

    Seriously, your best bet is to type something like su vs sudo in a web search engine and then start reading. You'll find tons of info on this topic.
  12. Re: Best way to share docs between desktop and laptop?

    I use flash drives and email attachments to share files between computers. Yeah, trying to find ways to label flash drives, that's a drawback.

    Re: Plant based "Meats". Your opinion?

    I rarely eat meat, but I am not a strict vegetarian. I tried that Impossible Burger from Burger King. Thought it was ok, but not something I'd go out of my way for. When I want meat, I don't want...

    There's really a message that says that??? (I have no experience with Windows 10.)
  19. Re: Why do you choose Ubuntu but not Windows or MacOS?

    I prefer Linux because it's FOSS -- I'll go with FOSS over "proprietary" whenever possible -- and because with Linux, my computing needs are covered for a fraction of what it would cost me if I used...

    I run Kubuntu. I have no opinion about what is the "best" flavour. Of the 'Buntus, I've only spent time with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu. Kubuntu was one of the first Linux distros I tried -- first...
