From now on you will all be put on double secret probation...
This is the wonderful thing. a single person with a spare bedroom is equal footing competition to a $100,000,000,000 studio.
Well, the single person with a spare bedroom and the camera also features quite prominently on a number of porn video sites.... I hear.
"Every month or two" is a myth. Update Pack 6 is LMDE 201303, Update Pack 7 was released in September and we haven't seen an update since.
Ubuntu became crap, ok, ish
I am pretty sure he will slip a systemd dependency into wayland somehow. Wayland is developed by xorg developers and will eventually replace xorg, so yes.
Today's moderators don't seem to have a clue, the above post is not funny but deeply insightful.
"Every once in a while" as in every other month. I have seen no security updates whatsoever in between the update packages.
If they really customised the Ubuntu installer, did they have to rip out essential functionality?
Debian is apparently not for you and Ubuntu is crap, no doubt.
I don't do that much fiddling on LMDE, but a system for which security updates are released every once in a while is completely unacceptable. They should just call it quits. And again, what is it with the installer? What is wrong with taking/forking/whatever a very good, capable and mature installer (I am talking about debian now...
Thing is, I really like the Mint desktop stuff, but the distros are so far a joke unfortunately.
If only we had places where information could be stored and searched so people who think they've figured out something new can actually look to see if it's new.
We do, it's fairly new and we call the "cloud"...
It's often easier to do a full save, a fresh install, and then restore whatever you need. My Linux Mint upgrades take about a day of work to get everything back to where I want it.
Dear Mint users, please stop calling it an upgrade when in fact you're doing a complete reinstall of the OS. I know that this idiocy is coming from the project's website ("In a "fresh" upgrade you use the liveCD of the new release to perform a new installation and to overwrite your existing partitions."), but that doesn't mean you have to use it outside the linuxmint forums.
It's only easier in case you don't use full disk encryption, which the installer still doesn't support. Why the project decided to write an installler from scratch I will never understand, and don't get me started on LMDE...
This is how Internet Explorer would look if you move the tabs to the top like in other browsers.
I have yet to understand the reason for the UI change in the other browsers.
You may be right, but that doesn't diminish the fact that this should have been a feature from the very beginning and that its removal is not a step in the right direction from the user perspective.
Oh, and yes, I don't use this OS (or any other smartphone for that matter) for precisely this reason, I can't properly contain and manage the installed software on a very privacy sensitive device.
You mean like something RAR?
Grammar not strong the morning in...
If only there was some kind of error-correcting software that divided files into chunks for transfer; a way to download torrents of bits, if you will.

* A fancy audio analyzer visualization applet
* Smooth fade-out when pausing music
* Many UI improvements and visual tweaks including better support for alternate color themes
With priorities like this, we can expect a decent application in about two decades I guess.
