    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Krita

    This has been around a long time so I guess most of you know about it but I have only just started using it and it has been OK so far, it is certainly nice to have a free cross-platform raster graphics editor and I think it is worth trying: https://krita.org/en/

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Dining with the Devil

    Would appreciate a bit of info from anyone dual-booting 'nix and Windows. Does Windows play nicely as the second OS of a dual-boot or would I need to install W10 first and then put the 'nix on after.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Ubuntu 19.04

    Latest Ubuntu upgrade has not been out long enough to look at properly, just wondered if anyone had any first impressions. From a cosmetic viewpoint it is good to see their artwork for the main screen is still good. The Cosmic Cuttlefish is still my favourite and was not sure to expect from...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Gparted

    There have been some issues with Gparted not launching on Ubuntu, especially 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish. If you have installed it but it fails to launch run the following from a terminal and that should fix it. xhost +si:localuser:root

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Another great machine

    Have had my Octane V for a couple of weeks now and very pleased with it, even more than my original Octane.

    I realise this has been asked many times before but wondered if there is anything new about in laptop cooling trays for 17" computers.
