Re: I now officially hate MicroSoft

Yes but, I dual boot with and mostly run Windows 7, I switch between the two and turn the computer off at night. In that sense reboots are occurring daily or more frequently. Still, I do not recall being asked to reboot after any [more]

Re: Stumpf resigns from fed advisory panel

Re: I now officially hate MicroSoft

I noticed that also as I dual boot W7 and Mint. Another thing I notice is after a year or more and quite a few updates to Mint, not once was a reboot required.

Really? I am astonished.

Re: Help, the market has gone up!

There's a fallacy here. In America, and in any other country with similar government paid retirement benefits, no one ever is left with no income. Social Security payments are enough to cover bare necessities.

Before you jump in, yes, this is a tontine, and no, there is no recorded

For some reason the Linux-Mint Update Manager didn't list it as an available option.

Re: Help, the market has gone up!

It brings to mind what my Dad said, "It costs a lot to be poor. Things are cheaper if you are rich."

Re: Help, the market has gone up!

Re: What is slowing internet service?

Ookla says that our internet speed is only 0.2 Mbits per second.
