FAQ

Answers to common questions about this site

Why does the site only have a dark theme?

Because I can't see myself writing JavaScript.

Why Linux Mint and not [insert distribution name here]?

Because Linux Mint is really a begineer-friendly distribution, but can also expand when needed. It features the Cinnamon Desktop with a Windows-like UI. Cinnamon is also very customizable, and most users switching are looking for freedom.

elementary OS

I know, this is all the hype now. But, most users switching to Linux are coming from Windows, and Elementary OS is more like Mac OS X.

Zorin OS

Zorin OS distribution has a WIndows-like UI, but has a Pro edition and a "customization" app, which, instead of allowing users to choose DEs, applets and GTK themes, it only allows pre-made layouts and some themes. Zorin OS is just not as good as they describe it on their website.

Ubuntu

Ubuntu looks more like Mac, and it is commercial. What are switching users looking for? Freedom. Ubuntu completely negates that.

Debian, Fedora, Arch

They are just unusable.
