  8. First, first unread and last posts

    I haven't set anything up on the new forum. I just log in, click the "Unread Content" at the top, then click the blue dot against a thread I am interested in and I'm taken to the first post that I haven't read. (Actually, I middle click to open it in a new tab then scroll down to the next interesting topic and repeat...) Once I have seen all I want to, I click "Mark site read ".

  13. Linux . Best way to get started

    Yes, I am a Linux afficionado but I try to be open minded. It would seem that my experience has been different to yours. BTW my wife who knows nothing about computers, uses Linux quite happily and prefers it to Windows. As for toilets....................................................
  14. Linux . Best way to get started

    As I've said above I'm well out of date with Windows but I have ten different computers here running Linux and the only things I've had to get drivers for are my two printers. One other thing to bear in mind is that generally we are not comparing like with like as Windows comes preinstalled whereas mostly, Linux has to be user installed. It would be interesting to see what your experience would be installing a vanilla copy of Windows.
  15. Linux . Best way to get started

    Not at all. When was the last time you installed Linux?
