I noticed that there was no longer the "extract" context submenu for zip files after one of the last updates. Then I went to check the ".desktop" files on /usr/share/kde4, and noticed that they had an editing mistake in the mimetype line:

DebEX Barebone – build 140509 – 64 bit with Xcfe4, Pacapt and kernel 3.14.1-amd64

The system is a based on Debian Jessie (upcoming Debian 8). There are also certain elements of Debian Sid (unstable). Xfce 4.10.1 is used as Desktop environment. It aims to be fast and low on system resources, while still being visually appealing and user friendly. (…and according to my experience it is much faster than LXDE in Debian). DebEX Barebone uses the original Debian kernel 3.14.1-amd64 (equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest stable kernel 3.14.2). The system language is English.

Ubuntu has spyware enabled by default?

@ k3?tO1

Do tell... about enabled spyware.

And what is the third element of your user handle ?

And from what I have read sofar, VitualBox with MS Word loaded
seems to be the only way users are able to 'bring over' doc's
formatted in Word to show up in Linux in a reasonable facsimile.

Enabled spyware REALLY ??? surely you jest.

More than two-and-a-half-fold decrease in ~/.thumbnails disk usage with pngnq

The shared thumbnail folder can be quite sizeable on linux (or whatever OSs follow the freedesktop.org specifications), you won't have much trouble finding forum threads of people asking if it's OK to delete it, because it's occupying too much space.

One of the reasons it occupies so much space is because the thumbnails are set to be PNG files, which are comparatively large by nature. Thumbnails for a folder full of JPEGs of moderately medium-large resolution (about 800-1200x800-1200)...
