Re: Rage against the systemd 'machine'

The name "Shepherd" doesn't inspire much. It still sounds like "big brother," the Overseer, or Your Robotic Overlord.

Re: I think Debian is about to get even more popular

It's kinda sad, really. Ubuntu gained such a huge following by being Linux for Human Beings ® and Linux for the rest of us, ordinary desktop users without the "mad geek skillz" that were always associated with alternative OSes. They did what Mepis did, only with billions of dollars to promote it. No...

Re: XFCE panel (not whisker menu) adding open apps to the left

Right-click on the icon that's out of place, then select "Move", and just drag it to the right and drop it where you want it!

Re: I think Debian is about to get even more popular

Stability matters a great deal more than it used to for people new to Linux. More people are coming over out of necessity rather than "because MS is 'immoral'" or something. One of the most frequent reasons is that their former OS is outrunning their perfectly good hardware. Changes are coming too f...

Re: minstall problem and a Question

MX has a huge opportunity in front of it. <snipped for brevity> It is important to define your audience as you make changes to key components of the system - like the installer. After all if the installer is finicky - new users will just move on and miss out on the great MX experience. <snippeted> ...

I think it's a big setback for all the newbies who have come to depend on Ubuntu-based "newbie-frie...

Re: What is the best dock to use with MX?

If what you want is a decent, usable, low resource tool and are willing to accept a lower amount of eye-candy, xfce-panel is simply 'magnifique'. :happy: In other words, the only difference is eye candy? Pft. I'm fine with just my panel then. I'm not into eye candy much. And if I ever wanna get fan...
