    My Linux Mint 20 exactly like Windows 10

    Linux distributions are like churches, all of them demand a leap of faith from you. Would you go to a church where's a pimp preaching charity? Do you have any idea what you have done here?

    What are Some Interesting Things in Debian 10.7 That I Should Look Forward to?

    I think that they try to make the installer user friendly (subjective) with that live installer and the graphical installer, I had some problems with both ... text-based installer do the job every time for me. I think because they have that tool they don't put much effort to the other options...

    What are Some Interesting Things in Debian 10.7 That I Should Look Forward to?

    I use the OS for some days now and I don't feel like I can review it just yet, in a year for example I would have done lots of things with it and would have counted how many times it crashed and why etc. Here some thing that I can say: 1) Comparing the esthetics of cinnamon that I use in Debian...

    booting da win

    I had a fresh Debian install too and I fixed it that way, no spesial tools, I tried them and fail. I suggest to repeat only the procedure of detecting and reinstalling GRUB not reinstalling the OS. redo = the panacea of computer science Only in computer science we do the same thing over and...

    booting da win

    If it is anything like Debian (that's all I have tried) I reinstalled GRUB with the Debian installer, I didn't use any special tool, I started the procedure from the USB media and followed his instructions...

    I use searx which as clearly states it's hackable, the guys that serving it can do literally everything they want with it and still sound better than google to me. Priorities I also buy a new laptop before the old one is broken since 2008 where I gave up desktop forever. Yes this is a security...

    Create partition for Linux Mint with Gparted

    What I asked is if I can have encrypted storage space (partition) for whatever use but the operating system it self not been encrypted... I don't know exactly what I'm doing but it seems that it's not the right way. It should be an entire separate OS encrypted and use the remaining space in its...

    Create partition for Linux Mint with Gparted

    Debian asks you to setup a swap space, if you skip it asks again and tell you that it won't work properly but it can continue installation without swap space

    Feedback wanted - as I answer the question of what is the best Linux distro.

    So far I have learned nothing on Linux, all I do is plug and play devices and set up programs far easier than it is in windows... I did not install any drivers, I didn't search what is my hardware... If someone can't use this OS he can't neither brush his teeth

    We have problems

    I pick the articles from the description of this video so I had the other perspective at hand. I posted them here because I find this a very interesting situation far beyond the realm of operating systems, it's a matter of misinformation with facts, with actual papers graphs and statistics in...

    Create partition for Linux Mint with Gparted

    Windows is like a corpse of a whale in my hard drive, and it populates 3 partitions of the 4 that it allows to create, So I put Debian in the space it allowed me... and no swap, which causeing some minor problems so far. I'm willing to risk the integrity of Windows installation now as long as...

    Feedback wanted - as I answer the question of what is the best Linux distro.

    I have hard time to figure out what I like in a linux distribution, much like I can't tell what I like in my torque wrench but more complicated. I know what I don't like in windows tho, user since 3.1. Maybe for start, what I want from Linux is to be absolutely nothing like windows.

    Feedback wanted - as I answer the question of what is the best Linux distro.

    New user here, not qualified to have an opinion, I just want to share my reasoning for some feedback maybe. Linus care for the impact that his work has in the world, he is proud for Android more than anything else and it makes sense to me. Tho he doesn't seem to care for my own needs and users...

    Richard Matthew Stallman – The Father Of Free Software Foundation

    What I want is to pay for my free software and I also want qualified free hardware for that software. For now all I can do is to donate a small amount of money that an Internet services owe to me either to Debian or to Blender or both, directly if possible. Only an open source software can be...

    A Possible Way to Improve Linux

    I have limited knowledge but I read things, it seems to me that the Debian policy is the reason of the fragmentation of Linux distributions... and it seems to me like a very fn smart move especially if it was deliberate, and the current situation has been foreseen from the start. I can't see the...

    hey, I'd like to become "that guy" who only boots up windows on virtual machines to play games while using mainly linux...

    No reason to play games on virtual machines, use 2 operating systems in one machine and put everything you do on a free operating system, any original material you may produce, any sensitive info you may have etc. Fill Windows with installations of crappy games, and any crap you have in general...
