It's obviously bullshit. Why would you try to use one of the thinnest tablets available? Why spend all that money?
Maybe the key is to RTFM first and see which environment has the better documentation.
Okay, Firefox, Chrome, LibreOffice apps scroll slowly, the terminal window scrolls as moderate speed. How do I turn off hardware acceleration for scrolling in these apps? And won't they be slow without hardware acceleration?
I think the problem is the lack of a standard API for mouse wheels. It seems to have been bodged on as extra mouse buttons, and then again later in libinput as a specific wheel input, but for some reason Mint Cinnamon ignores both and does its own thing.
Nostradamus was just guessing and you have to really reach to interpret his predictions as having been right. Verne was an SF writer, and yeah, SF writers are often quite visionary and right about stuff, but he was also wrong about a lot of stuff too.
RMS is not just right sometimes, he made very specific predictions and very few have proven to be wrong or in need to outlandish interpretations.
Read that message, sent 2 minutes before the attack, by someone not even on their radar at the time... They just want to read it after the fact in order to see who it was sent to and if it incriminates them.
What we have now is as good as it can ever reasonably be. You can't stop ever terrorist, especially when they use a car or knife as their weapon. What we can do is protect our freedoms.
Friend of a friend got hit with an unwanted Windows 10 upgrade. Tried it for a while on the advice of Microsoft who said it was "better", but hated it. Lots of stuff didn't work. Asked my friend about reverting it because he didn't want to make things worse. By the time the friend gets there it's past the 1 month grace period and the old OS has been deleted.
To be fair, updates are about 500x faster than Windows. It takes a few seconds to check and most of the updates install without a reboot. It's actually really great, apart from that one message I had.
I'm using VMWare because I've never been able to get USB working properly on VirtualBox (Windows host). Ubuntu seems like the next one to try.
Mint was supposed to be the chosen one... But I'm going to try Ubuntu and Chapeau too, because Mint isn't doing it for me.
32GB RAM, 4 core CPU with 8 threads, fast SSD drives... I know VMWare disks are slow but I'm kind of amazed how long it takes to open fairly small apps. Maybe it's just the VM, which I dedicated 8GB and 4 cores to.
Unlike Windows, where there are usually a few ways you can reach a goal, some more intelligent and efficient, some less, there is usually only one way to do something in Linux, and it needn't be the most intuitive one depending on the angle you're approaching from.
I have the opposite problem with Linux. There are too many competing options and few standards. For example, there are many different desktops available, with a choice of various window managers, and either X or Wayland or something else. And if you want to make your mouse wheel work properly with them, there are at least three ways I have found to do it, and at least for Cinnamon none of them work.
On the one hand, choice is good. On the other, especially as a noob I don't want to figure out which desktop system will work with my mouse, I just want a solid one that is easy to configure.
I've used Linux/BSD extensively via the command line and think it's great, but it still seems to be a very long way from being a usable desktop for normal people, even for me. I'm going to take your advice and try Ubuntu, see if I'm wrong.
Your ad-hom was modded insightful. It's not.
RMS is right about a lot of stuff. Sometimes it took 20 or 30 years for him to be proven right, but he saw it coming and didn't have to resort to logical fallacies. That's insight.
I'm trying out Mint Cinnamon (the recommended default option) at the moment.
How do I fix the mouse wheel? Scrolling is incredibly slow in some apps and reasonably quick in others. I tried imwheel and libinput but neither seems to have an useful effect.
My next task is to find a good alternative to Github Desktop. I tried Git Kracken and it wouldn't even load, not even an error message, so I'm looking at what to try next.
If any EMP goes off payment systems will be the least of your worries. There will be a huge shortage of food due to refrigeration and farming machinery failures. Most trucks and other delivery systems will fail. People won't be buying stuff, they will be getting it air-dropped by the military in crates.
