    Post a screenshot of your Desktop

    Thanks for that. for I like to keep everything to my left, funnily enough just like when I am using a drafting table everything to the left of me, maybe because I instinctively reach for things with my left hand.

    With MX can you place the task bar on the bottom of the screen? I like to use the left side and the bottom of my screen for the access icons.

    Side Thread Inquiry

    I was watching a vid the other day from Explaining Computers and he was talking about the m.2 storage devices. He showed how to install them on the MB but he also showed that when it was plugged in it disabled one of the SATA ports. He was using a Gigabyte MB. So that is something to put into...

    External HDD issues after PC shutdown

    G'day and welcome to the site. "What is the brand of external HDD?" The formatting has no effect on the software that controls the HDD that only effects the discs and how they are set-up so that the computer can read and write to it. It is very strange that it should park itself and shut down...

    Microsoft: we were wrong about open source

    Yeah and even MS fails on that score from my experience of them. The writer also forgot one very important aspect of why MS took off the way it did and it had nothing at all to do with the OS, it had to do with marketing before the internet. No matter what brand of computer you purchased they...

    New to Linux -

    How long does the so called warranty last for? Seems as though Dell thinks that there is a difference to Ubuntu and Linux Mint. The only real difference is they handle and do things slightly differently as Mint 19.2 and 19.3 are based upon Ubuntu though there is a version of Mint called LMDE...

    Side Thread Inquiry

    What is a good brand of SSD? I'm currently looking at an SSD to load my main distro onto along with four or five others based on Arch, Slackware, etc besides Debian/Ubuntu based Mint so that I have at least three or four other distros play with. I will be using my current 4TB of HDD for...

    Microsoft: we were wrong about open source

    With that statement I wholly concur . I don't view Linux or FOSS ideology as an opposition but a natural reaction to the likes of MS and Mac as well as the others of their ilk. As a reaction it has many reactionaries all coming from a different point of view. All with varying methods to...

    Microsoft: we were wrong about open source

    Microsoft has gradually been adopting open source in recent years, including open-sourcing PowerShell, Visual Studio Code, and even Microsoft Edge’s original JavaScript engine. Microsoft has also partnered with Canonical to bring Ubuntu to Windows 10, and it acquired Xamarin to aid mobile app...
