    When people ask why you use Linux over Windows,Mac,and Chrome OS what do you tell them?

    Not always. It's possible to research something you find intriguing, but also want to hear from users first hand. Anyone who has ever made a major change from something they use in their life on a day to day basis, has had a bad experience or "surprise" with an unintended consequences of some...

    Dos2Unix, what does the " -r" mean in the "inxi" you asked me to run in the terminal? Just trying to learn. Thanks for the help, I have been over this to fix my stupid camera with Brickwizard to ad nauseam (and it's still not fixed and I even bought an external camera that specifically said it...

    Ubuntu Touch Phone

    Ahh, and that LG has a removable battery too, which I think is ideal. From what I've seen, most manufacturer's are now putting non-removable batteries in them across the board. Your LG is an improvement to my S5, but honestly, I don't email or watch movies or do anything fancy on it. Just...

    When people ask why you use Linux over Windows,Mac,and Chrome OS what do you tell them?

    I got it a couple of years ago, because the last straw with Microsoft, after years of me cussing at them and throwing my laptop, literally (sorry laptop, I know it's not your fault) they came in through the internet and completely blocked me from using the version of Office I had paid for. I...

    Ubuntu Touch Phone

    A Linux challenge to the Android/Iphone paradigm would be my dream come true. THAT would make me update my phone (still using a Galaxy S5--ha ha).

    Why does the Driver Manager in Mint 20.2, not let you see the drivers, change the settings of drives and/or actually "manage" the drivers?

    When starting my computer I get an error message that 'acceleration is not turned on for my video,' and then the question: "Open Driver Manager?" as if this could allow me to change this setting. I oblige and click 'yes' to open the driver manager, it does its little song and dance, then...

    I guess this is where you tell the Linux world about yourself? I guess there is a 420 character maximum? It would have been nice if: 1) I was told this before I started typing. 2) I could see the word count as I typed. Here’s something about me: I like efficiency and abhor things and...

    HI! Newbie, and not a techie either. Since I updated to Mint 20.2 a couple of months ago, I can't find my camera and neither can Zoom. Help?

    Hello to everybody. So it's Thursday here in hazy California and after trying Brickwizard's tip of getting into the Grub Menu, I believe the problem is solved for real this time. I was able to open Cheese and keep the camera rolling on video and it worked. I was in and out of zoom doing the...

    HI! Newbie, and not a techie either. Since I updated to Mint 20.2 a couple of months ago, I can't find my camera and neither can Zoom. Help?

    I think Brickwizard's Grub menu instructions fixed it! I have been in and out of Cheese like 5 times on video and it keeps going and going. In and out of Zoom's "test" page and it works and stays on. I am off to bed, I just hope it still works in the morning. I was just about to buy an...

    What a great guide Brickwizard. I wish I had it when I was doing my install in November. I do better with visual vs. audio instruction, though the guy who did the YT video showed us his screen as he went so that was a nice reassurance. He also recommended the Balena etcher and I used it. It...
