Re: Fragmentation is Why Linux Hasn’t Succeeded on Desktop: Linus Torvalds

I've used Linux since SuSE Linux 4.2 (late 1990s) - I'm using Linux now on 3 Laptops and 2 Desktop... I, and some of my family, use it every day - How is that failure?

Which version, and from where?

Thanks

Code: Select all

$ wine --version
wine-2.21 (Staging)
The version from MX Package Installer

EDIT: I should mention that I just had to restart from resume from TTY1... TTY7 was a black screen - hopefully unrelated, just Linux, might never happen again ;)
