This is obviously your call, but PM6/Ubuntu 14.04 are EOL  :'(

Sorry if my post could cause some confusion, I know the 5.0.0 is fully supported on Ubuntu/Peppermint.

Thank you for the clarification Slim, appreciated.

I do boot into Linux, right now mainly to run updates once or twice a week. But, I tend to follow the releases from upstream, which means that I'm currently on the 5.2.8 kernel.
I've been doing this for some time now, so in my mind the 5.0.0 is already EOL.
My daughters machine, is also following the upstream, but there on the LTS with the longest EOL, i.e. the 4.14 series, currently 4.14.138.

Despite all this, I did remember the sound issue I had when testing the release candidates mentioned on my previous post. Then again,... probably not relevant since I'm not on amd, but intel.

The future will tell...

Many a distro hoppers last words :))

Hoppatitis rivals C21H23NO5 as a hard habit to break.

Was this a riddle for the chemist?!  :D

C21H23NO5, a.k.a heroin

Although, in reallity it could be any of these, https://www.chemspider.com/Search.aspx?q=C21H23NO5

Spoil-sport!  :D

Not sure I got that...

I was going to say, try the current upstream, i.e. 5.2.8... but, then I thought that maybe I shouldn't since I haven't really used it.

I remember I had buzz on 5.0-rc2, but that was gone on 5.0-rc7...
Anyway, I haven't been running rc's for sometime now.
Let's see what the future will bring...

Edit: To be honest, I haven't been using Linux in two months, so I wouldn't know... been only running BSD.

Android is no longer what it used to be  :'(
Damn google's "mamma boy" that calls home once every 3 minutes to let her know what you're doing  >:(

I'm seriously considering an iphone for the first time ever!!
Yes, I know overpriced, but it calls home much, much less. Actually, I'm considering a "phone" like 10 years ago  ;)
Only issue I need to solve is how to get my digital-ID working without a smart phone  :-\ ...banks here support Windows or Apple, the phone has been my "backdoor", allowing me to use my bank through Linux and BSD.

For those of us in Europe, I wonder how long the european antitrust policy (http://ec.europa.eu/competition/antitrust/overview_en.html) will remain with their eyes shut?

Sorry, but I'm beginning to like paid services. Google came with their "free"-stuff and wiped out the competition, now there's almost impossible to disable Google from your life.
Although, even paying for it is not safe. Take Netflix, for example, you pay for it but you can't use it without google's stupid widevine-lib. You might say, "yeah, but widevine is free to fetch and use". No, its not! Its a closed source binary blob compiled against GlibC. For those of us running systems with another C-library, there's no Netflix without a serious work around, https://www.unitedbsd.com/d/68-streaming-netflix-on-netbsd

Sad but true... and, worst of all, people accept this s**t  >:(
There's more to it, but I'm done for now...

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Another converted machine

I think XP is more akin to messing with nitroglycerine than a zippo at this point :)

Now, that was nice. I'd say, more like nitroglycerine in a shaker  :D

I'll, at least, warn the owner about the limitations of this thing.
1GB and HDD is not a good duo  :D
