Hi all ..

Just thought I would check in with Lenovo G560 laptop before wiping the MX_15 Partitions. My mother used this computer most of the time. It has Windows_7_64x_Home -&- MX_Linux_64x_15_Fusion. I'm really going to miss Fusion. Oh and I can actually see everything on this screen and I don't have any trouble getting everything to look right. (( I'm having a tough time of it with the Galago @ 1920x1080 HD. Layout, text, scaling & DPI ... arrgg. )) Just can't seem to get things to look right. I'm sure it is just me not doing things correctly. Work in progress. :bagoverhead:

Lenovo G560 - Display 15.6 in" -- Resolution - 1366 x 768 (HD)
Galago UltraPro / Clevo W740SU - Display - 14" -- Resolution - 1920 x 1080 (HD)

I was going to paste a screenshot of my mx-15 desktop, but I'm sure I've probably done that already in the old art/desktops section of mx-forum. The desktop backgrounds was - A red fox in Winter and A lighthouse in Winter. My MX-14 was the same style. The Lighthouse in Winter was an amazing photograph.

Going to re-install Linux later on this evening and try and get mx-15 out of the way and out of boot/grub. :eek:
