    xfce will do the trick. Fast and easy to use. I have often used this to replace Windows machines for users and they have not required any instruction to use it.

    I would go for Debian 10 - incredibly stable, easy and just works - without bloat. Recently switched from Ubuntu as it was always presenting snaps as the default option for installing any software.

    You could potentially get a cheaper motherboard. You should also be fine with a Ryzen 5 if you do not need the extra cores (Quad core is still good) - I run a lot of VMs so like to have extra cores,...

    I would recommend creating a live USB drive (or CD) of Debian 10, which came out recently. It is easy to install and it gives you a choice of Desktop Environment, which is an important aspect -...

    I used to get similar behaviour on Windows laptops too - I stopped doing suspend - I believe the issue for me was having a mechanical hard drive and for some reason, suspending seemed to set the hard...

    I am not sure I can answer all of your questions, but personally, as someone who has produced music using Linux - I would not use a VM. If it works ok then great, but I have found native support is...

    They do wear out - an extreme example for mine is that I trod on a charger cable that was still plugged in which immediately destroyed one port and made the one next to it less reliable. Ok, that...

    The game works from the native Steam client now that you can run Windows games with the new SteamPlay feature. I have found about 50% of Windows games are working this way so far...

    So, that root exploit on MacOS

    Trying to get my head around it, but from a Linux world, you would never have a blank password for root? How does/did MacOS implement this flaw?

    I would be interested in thoughts from the...

    It is probably down to Wine configuration. I have that game in my Steam library and it works ok via Wine. I found that PlayOnLinux can make Wine config a bit confusing by having multiple versions. ...

    I would go for Python if I had to pick one, but also be open to learning other languages - I know about 10 programming languages, which is enough for now. Always interesting to compare...

    Similarly to Rubberman, I only use Windows when given a Windows machine at work (often have to work with Windows VMs). I often have to "fix" various Windows machines that various family members use...

    People will disagree, but I have always found the Ubuntu variants excellent. I personally use Xubuntu for its performance and simplicity. I always find hardware support excellent - I run an old PC...
  16. Windows fully replaced for work and pleasure

    It was nearly 3 years ago that I decided to dual-boot my fairly powerful gaming PC with Xubuntu and Windows 7 (W7 was already on there).

    Firstly, having tried fully switching to Linux since around...

    My only concern would be that by limiting the Linux experience so much, you run the risk of not getting on with Linux. I guess if you have an open mind and low expectations due to the hardware, you...

    One reason to provide VMs is to provide a guaranteed/consistent working platform to all developers. You do not necessarily want to rely on all developers having the right equipment and software. ...

    Thanks - I had to construct my own because I wanted to create a link to a Windows application. I realise that Launchers are the more useful shortcuts and links do not seem very useful. The Launcher...

    I am using right-click > Send To > Desktop (Create Link) - it does indeed create a link, but as I say, it makes the target use the desktop as its working directory.

    That's a good point - I remember that (some time ago) I wrote a class with methods for making each data type safe. E.g. Strings, Integers, etc. So when calling the stored procedure with parameters,...

    Almost a topical update with the release of Fallout 4 today!

    Fallout New Vegas runs perfectly via Wine. It even auto-detected ultra high settings! It does not even do this in Windows, which is a...

    I will have to check out qt. So far have been using Geany and tried a few others. Nothing quite like VS, but happy not to be tied down to 1000 software!

    I actually found geany to be close the Textpad for functionality, possibly better.

    This is interesting - I installed Steam from the Ubuntu Software Center earlier in the year, but noticed that after upgrading to 15.10 there is the same issue that you describe.
