Re: We're number 2 at DistroWatch page hit rankings!

Hello, MX Collective (ie everyone - CEO, Brains, Devs, Testers, Keen Users, et al) When I first started really trying linux, Redhat was the rage. However I couldn't get the hang of it for doing "work". Finally, I saw potential in Mandrake Linux with a GUI desktop and programs. After some internal d...

Re: We're number 2 at DistroWatch page hit rankings!

A youth is skipping around the local street singing, "Number 2 today! Number 2 today!" . A woman spots him singing and dancing, and recognizes that he is her next-door neighbour, whom she knows is an "IT nerd" who loves Linux. "Number 2 today! Number 2 today" , he sings, quite joyously. The woman s...

Re: Linux applied practically in the office space

Hello, sdibaja... I did a quick search for the (aforementioned) post but couldn't find the reference. Sorry. My vague recollection was that someone warned me (with respect to a problem I had referred to Forum) that my use of MATE on MX was not "safe" usage. I also have a vague recollection that the...

Re: Linux applied practically in the office space

sdibaja, I am not sure where you are coming from. Here are a couple of reviews from Dedoimedo website regarding MX Linux (using xfce desktop) over the last 2 years. 1. This one "Updated: January 14, 2017"... . . . . . https://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/mx-16.html ...is titled: "MX Linux MX-16 Metam...

Linux applied practically in the office space

Hello, All... ....... https://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/slimbook-pro2-kubuntu-combat-report-1.html Is that something we can talk about? (That is to say, talk about "in a nice way"?) Would he have experienced the same kind of difficulties with an "MX" kind of setup? The LibreOffice thing is a worr...

Re: Distrowatch 7 day page hit ranking

Interesting, j2mcgreg. I wonder about that. My understanding was that ratings related to the number of visitors linking to each Distro's write-up page at the site. (There may be other "views" of the data presented - ie 7days, month, etc., but it is the number of visits per se.) You know; if Jesse S...

Re: Guider - views and opinions sought

Thanks, wulf From the web page it looks pretty good. Provides a lot of info. I will check that out further. Just now, I also had another look at "Hardinfo", which I loaded via Synaptic some time ago. (Must have got side-tracked before I gave it a good look.) While it does have a lot of the "analysi...
