  1. Re: Glass or flat look? And which DE makes the flat look appealing for you?

    Doesn't really matter to me. I don't spend a lot of time on my laptop any more except to check my email, pay a few bills, and not much more. I use Xubuntu because of its speed and simplicity. I could...
  2. Re: Mini-PCs are taking over a segment of the market, but little Linux Support

    What's new, right? As mentioned before, Intel offers good support for Linux powered devices. My 5 yr old Dell Latitude still runs perfectly with Ubuntu. And blazing fast with 8gb RAM and an SSD. I...
  3. Re: REALTEK driver problem not going away after 5+ years

    If you want to use linux, buy compatible hardware. You wouldn't run windows if it had unsupported hardware, would you? My laptop has all Intel chipsets which work great with any distro. I don't fight...
  4. Re: Others Have Slow Experience with Ubuntu Xenial?

    Re: I wish I was 50 years younger!

    I'm not sure I would use a bumpy road as an analogy, but I get what you mean. I did the same thing my whole life. And I still do. ;) I'm a 53 yr old teenager, but responsible.

    Re: And a BIG THANK YOU for 16.04

    Glad you're back, I guess. But wife and kids have nothing to do with running linux. If you've been gone for 10 years, my guess is you'll be gone again......

    Re: I wish I was 50 years younger!

    I hear ya. But unfortunately, it is what it is. I can't complain too much for my age. People think I'm in my early 40's. I'll take it.

    Re: I wish I was 50 years younger!

    The way I would want it to play out is, I would be 23 again and know what I know now...... yeah, I know, it's the dream of many people. I don't necessarily want to go back in time, although the 80's...

    Re: I wish I was 50 years younger!

    I'll take 30 years younger. Then I'd be 23. Yeah, that would work nicely.

    Re: And a BIG THANK YOU for 16.04

    Very true. The more things change, the more they remain the same...... anyway, I'm real happy with 16.04 I'm using the Xubuntu variant. Fast and smooth as one could expect. An absolute pleasure to...

    Re: What do you use Ubuntu for?

    I remember a thread with the exact same title that was around for years. Anyway, I use it for everything, plain and simple. It does everything I need.

  12. Re: GNU/Linux certified PC OEMs are getting more expensive for home consumers

    Or any computer that is Intel chipset based. Intel works with the Linux Foundation and is known to be very linux friendly. My Dell Latitude from 2011 still runs lightning fast, granted I upgraded the...

    Re: I've given up on Yahoo Mail

    I gave up on all things yahoo years ago. It's played out and washed up.
  14. Re: Harsh but fair criticisms for Linux on the Desktop, 2016 edition

    I was just thinking the same thing. Not saying KDE is horrible, but every time I try it, I wind up uninstalling it. It has always been a buggy mess for me. Some people might not like Unity, but at...
  15. Re: Harsh but fair criticisms for Linux on the Desktop, 2016 edition

    I disagree with the stability part. Linux has been near perfect for me since '07. I used to have a lot more issues with windows. On top of that, I really don't care what anyone else thinks. Linux...

    Re: Don't Use dd Before Your Morning Coffee

    At least it was just a backup. A few years ago I mistakenly wiped a drive with 35,000 mp3's on it and no backup. It took me years to amass that much music. I literally cried. Data Destroyer is an...
  17. Re: If you only watch one Ubuntu video this, watch this one

    Very cool. But I spend a lot of time on my computer, which relates to the phone also being used. That would decrease cell phone life. I like to keep my phones for about 2 years, and wouldn't want the...

    Re: Anyone still with 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin

    Actually, you could "make" a newer version of Ubuntu into Christian Edition just by manually installing the programs and themes yourself.
  19. Re: Anyone else just Love MInt/Debian/ or Ubuntu?

    Not sure about that, but it is the most used OS in the world now.

    Re: Ten Years of Ubuntu

    I started with Ubuntu 4.04 but didn't go full time until 7.04

    Simply awesome, and can't imagine using anything else.

    I'm the same way. I also like how chrome syncs with the chrome browser on my phone.

    What are you going to be using the Pi for? I installed Kodi and use it as a streaming media player.

    Too bad more people don't do the same instead of trying to install linux on incompatible machines, then saying linux stinks. But another thing one can do is install linux on any pc if the it has all...
