Lint, aka Linux Mint, is most certainly NOT the distro of the year.

Why?

Job-less

Posted 01-19-2011 at 12:11 PM by stefragre

Apples Steve Jobs is a cancer survivor, like me, and he's a genius, and I'm not. But I can readily sympathize with his decision to retreat from the job he has. My own situation with cancer and the treatment I went through were similar, I ran a small
painting business, and knew I had to completely let it go. My treatment was extensive and time consuming, and because I had good people working for me I sold the business
to keep it going. Fortunately a competitor bought it and saved some...

USB stick with Ubuntu Live system doesn't boot - why?

And stuxnet, the worm. Is it true that it is a joint venture between us and Israel..??
True or not, it gives pause to wonder about the type of thinking in this latest piece
of malware.Aside from the politics involved, I'm not surprised...

A Good Double Act

Posted 01-16-2011 at 02:45 PM by brianL

Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello, Morecambe and Wise, and of course: Slackware and Debian. I've done it before, and I'm doing it again. Dual-booting those two on my desktop. In the past, after a month or two, I've usually got fed up with Debian - but this time, it stays...well, maybe.
I was going to put the 64-bit version on, but then thought of trying the 32-bit with the bigmem kernel for a while. When the next Slack is released, then I'll be doing a fresh install and reorganisation...
