Syria 2017...

@Francois Looks like they are expanding aside from Afghanistan. They are also in Philipines. https://m.journal-neo.org/2017/08/11/facing-defeat-in-syria-isis-inexplicably-expands-globally/ This has never been seen before. And then there is another problem between India and China, who knows what will...

Re: latex word-text processor: what you know about it

You would say the same about kertex? Actually, no. KerTeX is smaller and one can typeset many beautiful documents.; but TeXLive has more support. These TeX systems are great and can produce great documents. However, they are not designed/created to replace a word processor. I use both systems on my...

Re: latex word-text processor: what you know about it

Latex is a document preparation system. It is not a word processor. For a word processing feel, theres LyX. It is a WYSIWYM(what you see is what you mean). Reports, books, letters, posters, there are many you can do with LaTEX. I really like LaTeX and plain TeX, but to use this insted of Libreoffice...

@Francois
A 2003 study is good, but I feel it is much worse than that :( The insurance companies push that number higher than it really is. Your countries health care system is better than ours, but what impresses me more is Cuba's.

Re: Syria 2017...

/* And it took 700 years for Spain to rid themselves of the Moors that ruled Spain for a great while. NOTE: They were great architects, doctors, and inventors of Algebra. They brought many great things also. They[refugees] appear to have no love for country, as they would rather beg for asylum. Some...

Re: From almost no privacy to private information to be sold

Beijing has rejected President Obama's criticism of its plan to make tech companies put backdoors in their software and share their encryption keys if they want to operate in China. Funny the USA complaining when other World powers want backdoors in Software. But when the NSA or anyone of 5eyes wan...

Re: Syria 2017...

No its okay. I agree that the reason has been the Otoman empire and after that the French and British. For some reason you almost never hear politicians of these three countries [●] taking the responsibility for their own greed from the past and the willingness to now change hundred years of wrong....

Re: What would you use if Porteus was not available?

@Tonio, I see that you explained what's happening, but my question was about why it happens, especially considering how Windows works (does any one know about MacOS X?). You have asked a great question! Say you are running kernel 4.9.26, but all of a sudden you get a newer kernel 4.9.27. It is a ne...

Re: What would you use if Porteus was not available?

And one thing that I can't understand: why do we need to recompile drivers when we update Linux kernel? The driver needs to match the running kernel. If one does not want to recompile, then having dkms, dynamic kernel ... when we boot our new shiny kernel the driver is compiled against the running ...

Re: What would you use if Porteus was not available?

Point and Click will always win :D This is definitely True! There is Mint, Ubuntu and Debian at the top of the ratings at Distrowatch. They have thousands of distributions based on them because they will hold your hand and you click, click, click, ..., click^n and be happy. It reminded me of a famo...

Re: What would you use if Porteus was not available?

Tomas Matejicek, creator of Slax and linux live kit, one that creates a copy of your system now recommends Debian Linux. So possible future versions have Debian as base[ok with systemd], Devuan[no systemd], any other friendly version of linux out there that requires few clicks to get a desktop to yo...
