    LMDE 4 Debbie

Its goal is to ensure Linux Mint would be able to continue to deliver the same user experience, and how much work would be involved, if Ubuntu was ever to disappear. LMDE is also one of our...

    I didn't always do that as I'm as hard headed as they come. Just ask my Wife. :D Nothing wrong with learning by the seat of your pants the down and dirty way as ain't nothing like real world hands on experience. As for losing unsaved important data / folders / files etc if you don't save it...

    A user who is really interested in installing and using Linux will take the time to learn a little pre Linux how to so that the new Linux user can properly install Linux and have a good first Linux experience. Most new Linux users don't do this and haphazardly install many different Linux...

    Why people don't mark their solved threads as SOLVED?

    Perhaps their lazy and just don't give a crap. Perhaps they didn't realize they could or should. Perhaps they're not exercising those little grey cells of the brain to mark their post solved.

    linux mint (cindy)
