GNU/Linux Discussion / Hello

I am a new user to peppermint 7.
Here is a hypothetical question
Can I properly order pizza online through a web site?
I worry that the pizza's web site was designed mainly for IE9 and maybe has parsing issues under firefox.
Yeah maybe that pizza had a form submission tool to upload a pizza through a stage of ingredients but I doubt it would even operate under Linux because maybe there some Internet Explorer 9 functions in that upload tool that just did not function well on the client side if Windows and IE9 was not used.
I know I am pondering about this pizza ordering system that was maybe declared flawless in it's day of IE9 when it was new, but it is still used for ordering pizza 10 to 12 years after IE9 was declared an old internet browser.

people can always get their friends together and make a MMORPG in their mother's basement.  Why?  Linux really does not have bleeding edge MMORPG games that use the latest technology.  It is just the way it is.  Maybe games are a second choice for most Linux developers because the bleeding edge part of the operating system is it's kernel.  Actually after a thought, it is probably more viable that a group of people in an academic institution create the MMORPG game for the Linux OS.  In this way, maybe it would count as a research project and maybe used for college credit as well.  It also goes into the idea that Linux was not really made for gaming from bottom up design.  It was meant for research and military applications.
I apologize for posting on an old thread.  I'm just getting too old and want to share from of my comments because maybe it will help someone out.

Excuse me
try the find tool it reminds me of the old MSDOS command dir /s

True the dd tool is not for the kindhearted.  I guess from what you state that people have some type of psychiatric drama with the linux console instead of a polished GUI app.  I love polished GUI apps.   It is walking on eggshells when pointing out where the usb device handle(???) is.  That is why you check your mount table before operating.

another simple way is to use the dd tool
dd if=input.iso of=/dev/usbstick bs=1024
it is slow but it works

I would not worry about it.  I'm sure in Linux land someone will come up with a "patch" or maybe it will be called a "Crack" to get authorization to install Linux on the new Windows 10 hardware.
