Re: YouTube on old hardware

Those old Thinkpads are hard to keep down :)
Just curious, have you maxed out to 2gb ram and/or added plenty of swap? I was always impressed how much better my old netbooks with just 1gb ram would run when I added 2-4gb swap.

Re: MX 16 on a Chromebook

When these little Acers crap out they really crap out. Sometimes you have to cut your losses. Recently I pulled out the 4gb ram and 320 gb hard drive and tossed my C710. First issue was 2 usb ports went down. Then it started getting glitchy, so I suspect motherboard was having issues. I re-purposed ...

Re: MX(LX)Qt ??

I've started with MX and added MATE and it went pretty well. Last year I installed the LXQt version of Fedora. I was nice, but felt too incomplete for me.

Re: Microsoft Linux?

I keep thinking MS may one day purchase Ubuntu. The "Linux on Windows" may be leading in that direction, and the IOT move to Linux by MS may be telegraphing it as well. I think the upcoming info gathering in Ubuntu 18.04 is about Mark selling Ubuntu. I suspect he lost interest after the co...

Re: New name for the mx-installer

How about Zoe Installer

Re: Laptop Freezes

X220 is a 7 year old machine at this point. Certain video games may be a bit much for it. I've never hit 90C but I don't run games on my X220. It might help if you max out the ram at 16gb, but that old cpu may just be overmatched by the games you are running on it. It is possible you could upgrade t...
