General Discussion / Re: WTF? Windows 10 now actually losing market share
« on: February 16, 2018, 08:07:03 pm »
Why are they switching back to winders 7  :-\

Because it has a regular desktop interface, not that stupid mobile crap.  Too bad they don't know how awesome Linux is.

They all use linux... but don't know it on all of their cellphones, almost none of my family and friends use anything but their cellphones anymore...

Unless they have an iPhone.  iOS is most definitely not Linux.

New Users / Re: What level of update is safe to install ?

Actually, at this point in time, those are the most important to install, because theyíre kernel updates that protect you from vulnerabilities that have been found in modern processors.  If you donít install those, your system is at risk of attack.

All updates should be installed, as they contain security updates that are essential to your systemís health.  The numbers and colors are a Mint thing.

Some people bend sheet metal in special ways, which drives up prices. :P

Software & Applications / Re: Warning for Firefox Users

Wow, thanks for the heads-up, DAMIEN1307.

One important tip to anyone running Firefox on a Linux system:  ALWAYS update Firefox (or any web browser) using the version in your distro's software repositories.  Web browsers are usually kept up to date, even on distributions that have long development cycles, like Debian.  Never update manually using a version from another source in a Linux environment.

I know everyone seems to be trying to push Wayland, but it just doesn't seem ready for primetime to me.

Guess, I'll just keep doing like before... I mean, the main goal still is to help other users with their issues, right?

You don't have to do anything special, what you've been doing since you arrived is perfect; helping people and being a great contributor to this community.  :)

Software & Applications / Re: video editor recommendations
« on: January 28, 2018, 09:43:54 am »
Yeah, kdenlive is really nice, I just hate how it pulls in all those KDE dependencies.  But, if you have plenty of hard drive space, it will be fine.  When I used to render animations in Lightwave 10.1 (in Windows) and I would try to compose them into videos, only kdenlive would correctly import the Lightwave .avi files.  Openshot had some kind of issue with them.  However, one nice feature about Openshot is that it will import image sequences.  I don't remember if kdenlive will do that, but I don't think it will.  So, both programs have pros and cons.

Hey, thorough research into all things mint brings you here, right?  RIGHT?  Erm, OK, maybe not.  ::)

The karma system is a way of showing appreciation.  For example, if you help someone or they like what you had to say on a topic, they probably gave you a positive vote using the applaud/smite things.  Of course, it can go the other way too. ;)

Openshot is really nice, I use it all the time.  It's really simple to use and has some really nice tools.  Plus, it's really simple to export a video to pretty much any format.
