Incidentally, last night I updated the kernel in my 'Road Warrior' lappy => Linux 5.2.x

Peppermint 7 lives, to fight another day  ;D
You updated Peppermint 7 to the linux-5-2-kernel.

How does everything run since Peppermint 7 I believe is 16.04 Xenial based and an older kernel.

think about all the traditional jobs Man used to do?
Progress changes some traditional jobs that people used to do but should create new jobs but may not always be the case.  :-\

Wow according to the article in this link  (https://www.studyfinds.org/hurry-up-modern-patience-thresholds-lower-than-ever-before-survey-finds/) everything upsets today's generation which doesn't surprise me at all.

Today's generation doesn't seem to be able to cope well with a lot of things that people out of my generation just dealt with and handled as it came up. (I'm 67 years old)

Hello PCNetSpec,


I had seen that how to post whilst grazing the forum.

Personally I see no need for moving from Peppermint 9 to Peppermint 10 unless Peppermint 10 is more secure due to the HWE Stack Kernel.

Peppermint 9 Respin is running great on my 12 year old desktop and I was just curious if Peppermint 10 offered any advantage over Peppermint 9 and that was my only reason.

I'll just keep Peppermint 9 as it's working good and I like staying with a working Linux Distro.  :)


Thanks

Hello VinDSL,


Peppermint 9 and Peppermint 10 are both 18.04 based so can kicking down the road should be the same imo.

Yeah I'm not much into jumping into the latest release unless there is something new and  I really need it.

One of the things I like about Peppermint is that it pretty much from release to end doesn't change.  8)

I don't believe I've ever run an OS Linux or Windows where I couldn't update to a current browser.  :-\

Perhaps I'll take Slim Fatz advice and wait for Peppermint 10 Respin and install it on a different desktop.  :)


Thanks

Hello Slim Fatz,

Cool sounds like like good advice.

I'm using Peppermint 9 Respin now and it works great.


Thanks.

Hello forums,

I'm curious if there is any advantage of using Peppermint 10 over Peppermint 9.

Thanks.

FWIW.

Update.

I find a few things in this article particularly interesting.

https://itsfoss.com/ubuntu-19-10-drops-32-bit-support/


I doubt any of this will affect me although I may be wrong but if it should I'll just migrate back to Debian.

I'm beginning to understand why Clem Lefebvre and the Linux Mint Devs is placing a lot of emphasis on LMDE as it's all beginning to make sense now.

So would dropping all 32 bit everything effect all users or just certain users as I'm still somewhat confused as to exactly what would change.

Can't help you with what changed it I'm afraid.
Oh well.
That's Cool.

It's all working good.
I don't mind DuckDuckGo for my search page.

Hello PCNetSpec,

I wonder what caused it to change.

The first install I did choose the minimal install choice which you said is inactive.

I did a normal install on the second desktop without any changes.

Both times the standard default Firefox page.

Everything works good on both desktop computers.


Thanks
