Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

I'm kinda like Malspa as far as this goes: Why do we need to appeal to "the masses" anyway? I use Linux to keep older hardware going strong, and I'm not a gamer like most computer users my age. I used to be a "Linux evangelist," always looking for opportunities to "convert" my friends, family, and s...

Re: Snapd? Is it just a pipe dream on anything but Ubuntu?

Snaps is too new for me to trust it. Same with Flatpacks. Nothing beats good ol' apt-get. But I think it's cool that people are working on ways to make applications distro-independent.

Re: Why all the updates in Ubuntu?

I've been learning about Slackware for a while, when I have time. <stuff deleted for brevity> I like Slackwares KISS principle. But man that's a rocky road. You really have to know what your doing. Just conversation. I've been playing around with Salix - an OS "for the lazy Slacker," they call it. ...

Re: Why all the updates in Ubuntu?

Most newbies and "casual users" wouldn't know how to selectively update their OS anyway, choosing only security updates, for example. Linux Mint's updater is the closest thing to informing users about upstream updates from Ubuntu and letting them opt out of dangerous ones. With MX it's not an issue ...

Re: How to download and setup Waterfox and Slimjet browsers?

Omygosh, adding a PPA? Far better to just ask for it to be added to our repositories!
