    Dual booting Linux and Windows 7

    I thought it possibly was. It'd be possible, but rare, if it wasn't. And now you get to take advantage of a full 64 bit system!

    That's too bad. I love stats. They help keep me motivated! I did get 1600 visits in a day, which was nice. And, yeah, it's easy to add stats to a WordPress instance. "WP Statistics" does a fine job. As far as I can tell, no single stats provider is 100% accurate. For example, Google...

    Lubuntu is in that list but Linux.org is actually recognized as an official place to get Lubuntu support. So, there's that. The list of distros could probably be expanded. There's room on the list for more! ;)

    Impartiality Of Distro Choices Advocated At This Site

    Oh, it's an interesting subject to discuss. It is my opinion that we don't need any additional rules. If one wants to see change, be the change they want to see. If you want to recommend a distro to new users, go for it - if you legitimately think it's an appropriate distro for their usage. I...

    Installing and configuring Brave browser on Debian 11

    More a mindset. I do things like never forward anything through the router so that I can safely use SSH behind the scenes - but you can't connect to that over the 'net as it won't be forwarded. (And yes, I verify this sort of thing.) I don't really do much beyond that. I don't even bother with...

    By the way, does your site's software have statistics? I've been meaning to ask that, but I keep forgetting.

    Meh... He found it interesting enough to give it its own platform. I think it has been hashed out well enough and that any changes we make should be in our own behavior, if we feel like those changes can be made and will help. What we can change is how we each individually reply to those...

    Installing and configuring Brave browser on Debian 11

    That's why I call it a process, but the above 'mind set' also works well enough. By process, I mean what you do and how you approach security for your system. And, yes, it can make you stand out - but I'm a fan of the idea that obscurity isn't security (though it can help). For example, your...

    Autostart applications on Fedora.

    Me too! I was going to suggest systemd services.

    And, again, it seems like a non-problem. I suggest Lubuntu when it's appropriate - and I'm firmly in the Lubuntu camp. I sometimes suggest a few distros. I sometimes even suggest Mint. Sometimes I give them a link to the article above which suggests absolutely nothing. If anything, I'd argue...

    I figure pretty much everyone here has access to a search engine if they want a list of distros suitable for beginners, or suitable for $X purposes. This really seems (to me) to be a non-problem looking for solutions.

    Dickey Betts, Allman Brothers Guitarist, Dies at 80

    I've got a copy of just the guitars doing Melisa around here somewhere. He will indeed be missed.

    Also, do we really need rules for this? I'd hate to see a rule saying that nobody can recommend Mint.

    I don't tend to recommend Mint exclusively, but may sometimes include it in a list of recommendations. I also am the author of this: https://linux-tips.us/finally-an-answer-to-what-is-the-best-linux-distro/

    Basic Security

    I could see that. Though, that mindset would lead to a process I should think.

    Thanks! That's a whole lot of articles. It's almost 600,000 words. It's an article every other day.

    Basic Security

    Security is a process, not an application. A perfectly secure computer is impossible. So, we decide how much security we need when weighed against the goals we have for our computing time.

    I haven't done a meta article in a long time. This is a meta article. Why? Well, things are going great - but, more importantly, today marks the third anniversary. Yup... I've been at this for three years. https://linux-tips.us/meta-ive-been-at-this-for-three-years/ No... No, I never thought...

    Today's article has you messing about with your CPU...

    Probably not - if you lower your activities accordingly. That's a good point. MSFT did so for their server editions in the past.

    Today's article has you messing about with your CPU...

    Some of the more modern CPUs run close to 100° C though many can be had with coolers that will keep the temps not far above ambient. You're welcome. The next article will be significant.
