    The reasons why Linux will never go above 2.something% of computer users.

    I applaud ThisIsJay for expressing his points clearly. I appreciate responses to his points that are also clear and to the point without the need to be snarky or overly-defensive. (My two cents worth: I agree that LibreOffice is a great substitute for Microsoft Office) A

    i want to install fedora permently

    You've come to the right place, Essuon. These guys are very welcoming and willing to help. (Despite the humility of Condobloke -- he and others do seem able to read minds from time to time. And jump tall buildings in a single bound, etc.) My two cents input would be don't think that any question...

    Hello from the Bartman

    KGIII, I couldn't agree with you more; wearing a mask is not just about personal risk. My mother, born in Derry N. Ireland, told us stories about the bombings of Great Britain in WWII. The blackouts were city-wide to not make them easy targets. Imagine, someone saying at the time "I think it is...

    Hello from the Bartman

    My god, what a bunch of whiney, lily-livered, husbands! Your wife won't switch to Linux!?!?! Pull on your big boy pants, like I did. I strolled into her office and in my most masculine voice I bellowed out "um, dear, honey bun? maybe, um you'd like to try Linux? please? I'll be your best...

    Need a version of linux that will run a HP scanner

    I had a heck of a time setting up my Epson scanner in Linux. Finally, I gave Fedora a shot and setup was easy! I had tried MX-Linux, L Mint, Elementary, Lubuntu, Ubuntu.... A

    Today's article has you changing your DNS settings in Lubuntu...

    Very well-written. 1) Typo: "not far vrom the clock" in the paragraph entitled: Change Your DNS Servers: 2) You say "If you’re still using IPv4 then you use that tab..." Maybe you could mention how to check? perhaps ifconfig? 3) "Retired mathematician"? I'm a retired astrophysicist. Lots of...

    Upgrading path to Fedora 36.

    I still have King's Quest on floppy. And Asylum! I had to finally get rid of my two TRS-80s model I. :-( Remember using a pencil eraser on the edge connectors? I also had a stringy floppy. What a disaster! But that was better than the audio cassette storage.

    Upgrading path to Fedora 36.

    Thanks. (I do remember fondly the days of DOS -- I still have a few 5.25-inch floppies! :-) ) I thought I read somewhere that in order to upgrade from Rawhide, a full erase and install will eventually be needed. I guess I was hoping to not have to reinstall programs and data down the road. is...

    Upgrading path to Fedora 36.

    I just bought an LG Gram (15.6") that is very nice and I want to run Fedora 36 on it. Assuming that I can handle the problems inherent in the beta version, is it better to start today with F35 or with the nightly F36s to later upgrade to the final F36 when it is out of beta? IOW, does one...
