    How much memory are you guys running?

    Until last year I was running the Pentium G3258 @4Ghz as the CPU even lol. It ran world fo tanks just fine. Now I have the same cpu as you after my son upgraded his box. By far the biggest upgrade was the Samsung 32" curved display I got for free from work.

    My gaming rig is a Z97 pro with 8Gb of ram and I haven't found the need for more. But granted I don't play games much anymore.

    How much memory are you guys running?

    I'm running anything from 2Gb (SBC) to 512Gb (server). Like mentioned previously, it all depends on the use case.

    I was never a Mint fan. Plain Kubuntu/Xubuntu/Mate has been my favorite.

    Snap is snap. I'm talking about the repos.

    Time for me to dump Mint, thinking about going back to Windows

    I've run into that problem also but I've also learned to check the date of the article before even reading it. Current information is usually available in wiki, git or man pages. You just need the patience to read it and understand it instead of having a ready tutorial.

    Windows 10 Calculator broken, crashes right as is opens.

    If you do programming the most logical move is to switch to linux. Unless you made the mistake of learning some proprietary MS language lol.

    Good compact 2.0 setup (PC, music/some movies, occasional gaming)

    No, you wrote like the Audioengine was one of the best in kind, which it is not. You still don't get it. I realize that you're probably not familiar with active speakers at all and that's why you wrote what you did.

    Time for me to dump Mint, thinking about going back to Windows

    My mother and both my in-laws have been using desktop linux very happily for many years. All that was needed was to move the internet bookmarks over and show where to open the office programs, print, scan etc. I do a maintenance visit once a year (now actually it's been 2 years already). I can...

    Time for me to dump Mint, thinking about going back to Windows

    Most of the time an advice given is not to type it, but to copypaste it. A GUI is always an inferior way of doing things. For example if a user can simply right click a file on Windows to share it, it means by default that the security settings are way open by default. Which is why Windows users...
