Tell a man how to go "Incognito" and that he'll be completely virus free, and you'll have a lot more Linux converts. Just don't do it in front of his wife, parents, or children. Best to discretely...

I'm firmly entrenched in Ubuntu based distros at home (with a splash of ArchLinux on my media machines), but our formerly RedHat based machines at work are now using OpenSuse. To be clear, we're...

This is my whole rant about people that "Know Windows". If you can't figure out how to unmute your sound on ANY platform (Windows, Mac or Linux) you don't know any platform. I did have a similar...

I've found the XFCE and KDE versions of Mint to be "glitchy". Weird things happening and stuff. Mint is best when used with Mate or Cinnamon.

The only question I have, and it can't be answered until I have a...

For that kind of hardware and what you're looking to do, Peppermint may be the OS for you.
