Didn't do it alone. No linux expert here! LOL

But in any case, you're very welcome.


Now if I can just find that pesky quarter slot.....

Btw I tried logging in as insane. It said 'please deposit 25 cents for the first 3 minutes....'
Go figure.

I've had people private message me and ask how they're supposed to "log on as insane" because they'd completely missed the humour.

I've also had it reported for moderation :-\

Only five more posts and you'll no longer be listed as a nOOb on here :)

[EDIT]

I really should change that, 'nOOb' now seems to have gained quite negative connotations :))

four after this one lol

Dunno what else I can contribute. I use Mint KDE myself
core i5 8gb ram ssd hd.
14 tabs open on this browser and 2 on another browser and on a 3rd browser usually one or two.

Had win7 on it from factory. Got tired of hacking, spyware, and others accessing my mic and camera.

Switched and didn't look back either.
I used to use PCLOS but that had some issues with what I wanted and wanted to do.
And played with others.

On my OLD desktop (core2duo, 2gb ram, 60gb ssd) I use LinuxLite. A tad slow but it works for general use.

Puppy is a fun one to play with but that's all it is good for.

Suse was a bit complicated and is now owned by Micro$oft so that one is out.

I played with QubesOS a bit but couldn't figure out how to get it to work.

And of course trying some in vbox as well.

One irritant is USB speeds. They are fixed at no more than 2.0 and not the 3,0. Not to mention it says done copying to flash drive and it absolutely is NOT.

But still better than window$. At least no BSOD's with linux.

You like how I changed the title the 2nd time?

Well it works quite well. Not as secure as ubuntu bot I have a few items I can watch out for.

I need KDE for the stuff I do on the computer. Cinnamon just doesn't cut it.

In reality whilst KDE does my nut in on a personal preference level, I have nothing but admiration for what they're doing.

And Mint is a great distro .. hence why we 'steal' 'borrow' a lot from them :)

LOL you are wise little grasshopper. Saves a lot of time in development.

I need Mint/kde to offer a right click and calculate sha1 and md5 on things - HATE typing complicated stuff then having to compare things.

Oh, and we have right-click MD5/SHA256 .. did they 'steal' 'borrow' that right back ? .. the bare faced cheek of it :))

No they are too lame to actually make it more usable.

They are still far too 'business oriented' for their own good.

There are far more users out there than businesses using linux.

They all want you to check md5 and sha1 and some even WORSE than that. But very few make it easy. Seems linux mint team is highly allergic to GUI's)
