Post Unity 8 Ubuntu shock? Relax, Linux has been here before

Cirdan

Re: Linux sucks

I'm with you, Bob.

I've been using that old rat's nest since 2006, and, darn it, if I can't have Unity 8, I might as well go all in with with MS.

Years of simple installs and uptime of months, no in-my-face upgrade nags, and updates that don't have to be blocked have left me feeling neglected; it's as if Linux Mint just doesn't care enough to even try to bother me anymore!

So I'll see about jumping ship to MS, but first I need to get some work done... Grrr... Mint's still chugging along... Guess I'll use it for the moment...

Twas the week before Xmas ... not a creature was stirring – except Microsoft admitting its Windows 10 upgrade pop-up went 'too far'

Re: M$ Long History

@MNGrrrl --

for a split second, I read that as Microsoft being a Lining Shitehouse.

What a glorious second that was!

Sounds kind of like,

"Nice server you've got there. Shame if Windows 10 happened to it."

Search engine results increasingly poisoned with malicious links

Cirdan
Devil

If I visited dodgy sites...

... or were overly concerned, I'd browse from a desktop computer with no permanent storage (other than BIOS) and booted from live BSD CD/DVD.

That should do the job for the hardware.

The trick then is that the wetware needs to be sure NOT to enter any personal data.

Thoughts from the hot tub...

Ubuntu 17.04 'Zesty Zapus'

Cirdan
Linux

Time flies!

Happy Z-day, Ubuntu! This day seemed SO far in the future...

I came in at Dapper Drake 6.06 (yes, .06 -- release was delayed).

Holy crap, how time flies. A decade with the penguin and it seems like only yesterday.

Thanks for MY ten Years of Linux on the Desktop.

...Cirdan...

P.S. I'm now hanging out with Ubuntu's fraternal twin, Linux Mint. Hope that doesn't make it too weird for Ubuntu...

Linux 4.8 gets rc8

Cirdan
WTF?

Huh?

"He's pretty sure 4.8 will hatch next week, writing that "I didn't get the feeling that there was no point in doing one final rc"."

That's definitely crypto... Or at least cryptic.

I'd really love to finally have a badge! :-)

One hundred posts asking for a badge

Oh great keeper of the badges, may I please have a bronze badge for my loyalty, occasional typo reporting, and generally giving you page impressions all these years?

In TUX we trust, RAMEN.
