Re: MX 17 Repository: The Liquorix Kernel Thread

Sorry, the built 32 bit kernel (4.16.16-zen-i686) is at the G+ T100/Ubuntu group community files.

Re: Moore's Law no longer happening

Moore's Law seems to hold for the systems I can afford. I can roughly double performance for about the same cost every two years. I can't afford the bleeding edge machines where Moore's Law no longer holds.

Re: Get Rid of annoying full-screen notification for streaming video

Re: what was the first linux distro you used

My first linux was the Knopix liveCD back in the 2000's. I got it running well enough to discover Frozen Bubble but then set it aside. It wasn't until 3 years ago, that I installed Ubuntu 15, which lasted about 6 weeks until I upgraded to Mint. At the time I didn't realize that Mint was ubuntu 14 ba...
