Debian Betsy Cinnamon 64 bit

Good morning Linux workers,
Keeping up to date I installed Betsy on one of the six partitions of my i-7, 1.5TB. Now I am back with Debian 8 and Mint mate LXDE. Reason: Both run to a standard form. I know what I am doing. Betsy progs don't due to prog changes - don't know why! For instance simple Freecell, my something to do, relax for ten minutes, is missing the ability with one click to restart, and the other shortcuts. At my age I don't fiddle around having to work out 'how to', I move on.
As a roofer, if your roof doesn't leak don't mend it, so apply likewise to good working progs.
Don't let your changes come under the heading of Mr Hutber's law (Ed Times), precis: progress is a retrograde step.
I started with Red Hat 1999, the cornered rat prog, and have since 'flown the Linux flag'.
Yes, I was a roofer, worked at Buckingham Palace ....(no afternoon tea there!) and I am 94.
So, please, simple things for me in my second child hood.
Seriously, Linux is great and you are all doing a great job. Thanks
Sincerely, Bill.

Welcome aboard, Bill,...

So, you're old enough to have fixed both George VI & Elizabeth II's lead roofs?!?! Good for you!!! Glad to have you as a Linux user...

So I'm not understanding if you have a question, or if it was just a comment... But assuming it was a question,... Between re-working the particular application in question (freecell), and changes to the desktop environment, one of those two may have spoiled your 10 minutes of relaxation... Both the KDE and Gnome desktop environments have undergone significant changes in the years past... Correcting it, back to the expected behavior, may be as simple a thing as making a change to the desktop environment settings...

If you do have a question,... Please feel free to elaborate. If not,... It's great to have you as a Linux user. You're living proof that Linux is not just for the young, technical types...
