Not me i was 47 when i met my wife 20 years my junior.
That's good to know.You're in good company. We've got much older forum members.
I have quite a few tell me that but I don't know.65 is the new 45 ?
I haven't heard of that brand is that apple cider or apple cider vinegar..apple cider is ok , Calvados is better
Me too.I dunno... I've slowed down quite a bit since I was 45.
You're not derailing my thread.Anyhow, I'll try to not derail the OP's thread too much!
There's definitely a learning curve but most everything new has some sort of a learning curve from my experience.I welcome them at the earliest steps of their Linux journey. It's a fun learning curve, and worth the effort to learn and understand it.
I know people who are diabetic and keep a piece of hard candy within reach for a quick fix when needed.if your blood sugar is in the habit of dropping, keep a couple of jelly beans close and handy....or some other sugary lolly.
You're not derailing my thread.
That's funny.Oh, once we get going we gab like old ladies across the fence!
I know when I first started using Windows 10 I had a lot of questions because Windows 10 was not like the Windows OSs I was used to using so a Windows 10 forum was helpful.For the most part, there's a bunch of regular users and then those who come just seeking assistance with a particular problem. Both are welcome, even encouraged.
I'm interested in trying other Linux and will but for now I need to learn about Linux and I will step by step inch by inch because to much to soon becomes confusion for me.As for your distro choice, LXLE is a good choice. I spent years using LXLE as my main desktop environment. I'm now on LXQt, because Lubuntu changed - due to some serious issues modernizing LXLE and a few other reasons. (If you see my post about Ubuntu/Lubuntu being released today, you'll see that I contribute regularly to Lubuntu, so I'm a bit biased.)

Cool let me look at those links you posted and find my backup drive.If it is of any help, i can give you a quick instruction on how to set up Timeshift.
As for installing it.....it may already be in the "software manager" for lxle....i dont know what they call it in lxle)
or, I can give you the code to install it via the terminal. You may have already seen the "how to install" in one of the links i left in post #16.
It is not difficult and if you have an external hard drive to save the snapshots to, it will probably be done and dusted in less than 15 minutes or so. It will, probably, take you longer to drink a cup of tea.
No rush....just keep it in mind.
If you haven't already guessed, I am in Australia....so our time zones are different. We will sort it out somehow.
Now that is funny.My skirt is at the dry cleaner so I am wearing jeans.
Hello wizardfromoz,On Timeshift, I have a Thread here
You can either wade through it, chit-chat (from my well-meaning friends) and all, or else go to page 14 or so and ask questions and we can help you get the best setup arrangement.
Friday here in Oz, so
Wow that kind of sounds one sided.
Thank you.It's okay. We love sharing knowledge. Heck, I've devoted hundreds of hours just into making a site to get my many notes online. I'll never financially recoup those hours invested and I'm perfectly okay with that.
I feel pretty comfortable with the GUI.For the most part, I think you'll find Linux to be fairly intuitive. Until you start really tweaking things, it seldom breaks. If you're dealing with the GUI stuff, it usually does what it says on the tin. If you're doing something in the terminal, there are often 'man pages' to guide you.
Timeshift can absorb a lot od space...depending on the amount of stuff on your pc/laptopI guess 32 GB usb drive would be enough I think my backup drive I have is 80 GB.
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa sudo apt update sudo apt install timeshift
I haven't used the terminal yet but I have a feeling it will start soon.
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y
