Re: Skype and Microsoft.

Yes, I have... after it was on my to-do-list for ages. It works well both in a browser (but careful, you need a WebRTC-enabled browser, ie Pale Moon won't do) and also as an Android app. I think you can't call the other parties though as you can with Skype so a separate channel to initiate the comm...

Re: FLAC to Audio CD.

OK guys, you can forget it.
I have managed to do the trick with xfburn now - by starting xfburn and dragging/dropping the files.

[SOLVED]FLAC to Audio CD.

I have successfully created an audio CD from several FLAC files, but I did it with k3b on M12.

Re: Reliability tool for Linux?

Installed logwatch from the repos and it works (from root console).

Re: 36 new updates?

I do want to continue using MX15, although I also use MX18.
MX15 works well for me, especially on my old eeePC901 netbooks.

36 new updates?[SOLVED]

The latest updates list for MX15 puzzles me.
Most of the packages seem to be libraries related to RDP?
I do not use RDP, so can I just remove those packages instead of updating them?
