    Join two hard drives in "/" directory

    I have three drives....one SSD, and two HDD's The ssd houses linux mint 18.3 + all its bits and pieces....the 1st hdd handles pics, music and movies, and the 2nd hdd is strictly for backups & co. It is not a pita to maintain. It becomes an easy habit to simply right click on any pic downloaded...

Hex color availability in text color....very snazzy. I am still more than impressed with the 'load speed'.....it really has improved out of site

    i need a simple machine with simple os, without ANY security. just to install it, to run forever, without any updates and upgrades....etc etc That puts you squarely in the middle of a dream world.

    why everything is so big?

    I think the OS's size is driven by demand. Consumers the world over are demanding more....much more from the humble os. They want audio such as would be heard in a theatre....(read bigger,more complex sound card etc...and a better developed os to handle that.....and that is the thin end of the...

    G'day Dan, and Welcome to linux.org I have not installed ubuntu before, so what you are describing is a little bit foreign to me.......However....if you were to type exit in the 'command prompt' (i believe this is probably ubuntu's 'terminal'), that should close that......and also eject the...
