Reddit: *headdesk* Trying to sell a 7yo Acer Aspire running Mint/Cinnamon/Rebecca No grabs.

Sunday 19th of October 2014 11:25:40 PM

The laptop works very well, it's old, yes, Model number BL50, hence why I wasn't going to be arsed to go pay for a Windows 7 OEM after M$ stopped supporting Vista.

I'm like "Fine I'll just put Linux on it and keep on using it as a netbook" no big deal.

I got a new laptop as a hand me down. So I don't need this one, figure ok time to sell!

HAH HAH HAH Around here people are looking at me like deer in the headlights and trying to lowball me, I'm just asking $100 for it, no dead pixels, boots up pretty quickly considering it's age, runs extremely well.

Really if I didn't game, I'd put Linux on all my computers, I just hate fucking around with WINE.

sigh Thanks for listening to me vent. I just had to get it out there. heh.

Reddit: Ask r/Linux: standard developer images using Ubuntu vs Linux Mint

Sunday 19th of October 2014 09:17:17 PM

I'm currently using Linux Mint at home but at work we're expected to have a standard dev image that is close to our deployment environment. The other devs use Windows or Mac OS X with an Ubuntu virtual machine. Is there anything stopping me from using Linux Mint or any other Debian-based distro other than ensuring the package versions match?

I just really freaking hate the Unity interface in the latest Ubuntu!

TuxMachines: Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn" Arrives in a Few Days

Sunday 19th of October 2014 08:09:56 PM

When Ubuntu hits the Final Freeze point the developers stop pushing updates and changes, and everyone focuses on the major bugs and problems that haven't been fixed yet. An exception can be made if something really terrible happens, but that wasn't the case until now and it's unlikely to occur.

Now, Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) is scheduled to arrive on October 23, this Thursday. Users will be offered the chance to upgrade their systems, but this is an intermediary release and it's not likely that many users will take this step. The Ubuntu LTS release was just six months ago and not too many users are going to exchange the five years of support for 14.04 with just nine months for 14.10.
