    Re: Top Linux distros in your mind

    Legitimately, Kubuntu.

    I am a big fan of the Ubuntu Flavor Family, because it is Debian Based, and the PPA system. Even Snaps work without problem.

    Desktop Backup

    We use a program called "Macrium Reflect" for the Windows 10 PC's at the office. It works great, but doesn't have a Linux client. You make a bootable thumb-drive, and after booting into the restore...

  5. Re: Why do companies throw out good computers?

    I agree. However, you're using a rational thought process, and attempting to explain how things actually work.
    Rationality had no place in the discussion of saving the hardware.

  7. Re: In what situation is Virtualization useful ?

    I use it to run Windows 7, so that I can use Adobe Software. And I cannot get these apps to run under Wine. Plus, I am well trained with Adobe software. Learned it back before Adobe purchased...
  8. Re: Why do companies throw out good computers?

    Primarily it is because they do not understand the nature of how computers work.

    I had an employer tell me to destroy a computer once. Nice machine for Linux too. Core i5, 8g of Ram, 256g SSD,...
  9. Re: Just Scratching my head, I guess I will never know.

    Gnome and KDE have options build in that can log into your Google, MSN, and Facebook accounts (if you so choose). I'm not really familiar with Cinnamon, but I believe it is a customized Gnome3...

    Re: How to attract more people to Ubuntu

    I am a firm believer that you NEVER try to attract people toward something that you enjoy. You find others that enjoy the same thing, and harmony ensues. When you try to attract someone toward...

    Aughey. I feel your pain.

    Although, the dual boot world is still somewhere I tend to live, because I still have some "proprietary" software that only works under Windows. The Gaming world is...
  18. Re: Why does Ubuntu have so much trouble upgrading smoothly?

    My only issues come from PPA's that have not been updated as of yet.

  19. Re: Why is Windows still the dominant operating system?

    Simply put, it's not. Linux runs on more computers than Windows does, worldwide, hands down. Servers, Android Phones, etc.

    Many years ago, I was at a "State Surplus" auction, and bid on a 17" CRT Monitor. This was circa 1997.
