    Re: no problems here

    Most of the problems revolve around the dual boot curse and multi-function printer issues. But regarding this thread I think we have an OS with 20.04/20.10 at its face that is worth the learning...
  5. Re: Will Microsoft turn Windows 10 into a yet another Linux distro?

    Actually, it is in testing and pre-production, saw it on the news the other day. It looks like a minicooper/drone. What I actually am amazed about this and the other post like it is the "skynet"...
  6. Re: Will Microsoft turn Windows 10 into a yet another Linux distro?

    I saw the "Not likely". But "not likely" equates to a guess and by itself a non-sequitur. I think that a corporation as big and rich as Microsoft won't let linux kernel run the world forever by its...
  7. Re: Will Microsoft turn Windows 10 into a yet another Linux distro?

    Sounds like a winner to me. Dual boot with no secure boot needed. Besides, many have tried to emulate the Windows desktop on linux (XP) but of course it wouldn't run Windows programs. So if...

    [SOLVED] Re: Groovy fails to load printer.

    Since you know that it is working you may want to try an install with "system-config-printer" which is the retired printer config. I had to use that to solve my Brother printer problems. It still...

    Re: I mean, why though?

    I mean, why not though. This thread goes to the heart of linux desktop. Why are all of the programs I left behind in Windows not ported to Linux. What Microsoft is proposing is not harmful at all. ...
  13. Re: Electrical power draws for multiple desktops, amplifier, a/c etc.

    So far as the circuit loading is concerned I would put a watt meter on those systems and see what the load is. It is possible that you can replace those systems for less than the load on your power...
  14. [all variants] Re: how do you make sure links are virus free before sending it?

    I usually test the link on my Windows 10 partition with secure boot turned off. If it explodes I don't send the link unless it is to a friend with Ubuntu.

    to check

    A normal default swappiness should be 60. 100 would mean always swap. 0 would mean never swap unless absolutely necessary. If you have a lot of ram you could...

    If it was me, I would reinstall and choose "other" at the install options screen.
