Re: Re: Re: Re: People are switching to Mac too not just Linux
The same often applies to window help as well,
Not in my experience. Now and then I find some advice about the command line, but I think more often not. Sometimes I'll run into something requiring editing the registry, which though not a command line is arguably as bad or worse. Again that's just me, I don't claim to have access to perfect data.
Also in the case of Linux, the command line is ubiquitous, but the graphic front ends are more variable.
Which means that will be a very difficult problem to fix (unless I'm wrong and it really isn't a problem at all).
Depends. If you mean generally an issue with people being able to speak however they want and access any information they like, it is that kind of issue. If you mean a 1st Amendment issue, it isn't because the government is not involved.
The real question is: where can I get a few of the mall cop's "Best of Miniskirt", "Best of Cleavage" or "Best of Short shorts" tapes (knowing full well that "tapes" is an anachronistic phrase these days)?
I assume you haven't actually tried to find them. :-)

Oh but you where pushing an agenda that this link puts a small hole in.
I don't know what you're talking about or if you replied to the wrong person since I don't remember mentioning a computer with Mint preinstalled. I had no agenda, you mentioned that it's possible to buy Linux computers on Amazon. I didn't know that, so I went to check it out and posted some links in case anyone else was curious too. That's all.
Beta and especially alpha emitters are worse to get inside your body. Gamma emitters are worse to be close to because gamma rays will travel through the air and penetrate your body. What is more "scary" is subjective and depends on the circumstances.
I'll bet most people are aware there's a difference, thanks to so many movies and TV shows that include a grizzled sargent growling at being called sir and saying "I'm not an officer, I work for a living!"
Maybe, but I can only think of Officer and a Gentleman and Good Morning Vietnam offhand. But of course there are a billion movies and TV shows I haven't seen.
If you don't already have Ubuntu installed, is there an advantage to using Ubuntu with Cinnamon over Mint? I'm not looking for exhaustive feature lists or anything, just like "yes it has features Mint doesn't" or "yes it supports more hardware" or something like that. Or "no". ;-)

If you need to use the command line... then you either really know what you are doing, or you haven't got the least of a clue.
Every time I've ever tried to figure how to do something in Linux that wasn't obvious, 90-100% of the help I can find online is command line only. And most of the suggestions are stuff I don't understand, and I used to used Linux regularly from the command line. To an average user, it may as well be Aramaic. To me, that is one of the biggest obstacles to widespread Linux adoption - I don't think the technically illiterate really want to muck with the command line.
On the other hand, maybe all anyone really cares about is having a browser, in which case you wouldn't need to look for help online.
I concede you're correct, but it's a bit of a lie, don't you think?
Not at all, probably just a difference in terminology used by people inside and outside the military. I'd guess most people aren't even aware there's a difference between enlisted and officers, let alone what the difference is. To someone in the military does "service members" mean enlisted? I certainly wouldn't have guessed that.
