    Ubuntu Devs Detail Plan for 32-bit Support in Ubuntu 19.10

    Canonical is a corporation. Microsoft is a corporation. Canonical and Microsoft are partners. What's not to understand. I personally have no problem with the decision and I'm surprised that 32 bit anything has survived this long. It's about the amount of money it cost to keep the support for...

    How many times?

    Antix Linux is a good distro for old hardware and runs on almost every computer however it comes with a learning curve so be prepared to get your hands dirty. Here's another Linux Distro that's an excellent choice imo. https://peppermintos.com/

    How many times?

    This is quite normal imo. If one never searches than one never finds and one never knows imo. If you like the Debian based / built Linux Distros than have a look at these. https://mxlinux.org/ https://antixlinux.com/ https://linuxmint.com/rel_cindy.php https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3633...

    Newb Perspective - Linux Distro Hopping

    Can't say that I have a favorite Linux Distro although I prefer the Debian based / built Linux Distros as Debian although doesn't have the latest software in its repositories it's bug free and stable in my experience. The mainstream Linux Distros most users use are Debian and Ubuntu based /...

    Newb Perspective - Linux Distro Hopping

    I've used quite a few different Linux Distros and they all work well on my old desktops. From the system resource hungry mainstream flagships to the small footprint lightweight Linux Distros. The only differences I found were resource usage and user interface and one Linux Distro wasn't any...

    Getting a new computer and a new OS. Help?

    Only if you choose a Linux Distro which supports ARM Proccessors. I believe there are some Linux Distros which do although uncertain which will support ARM Processors. https://www.pine64.org/ Can't compare a laptop computer to a cell phone as the platform is different and much more can be...

    Connecting to the Internet

    OK 95Mbps tells that you are able to connect. [Nik-Ken-Bah quote] "I observe the internet icon and have opened up both utilities and set-up the DSL/PPPoE to connect to my ISP." This I think is the problem. I don't think you need to setup anything. You created bootable Linux Mint media DVD /...
