The ability to switch between a 12 and 24 hour clock is back. Many of you requested it after Mint 16 was out. I was the one who thought it needed to go, and that translations could take care of that... and I was wrong
I use my system in American English, but that doesn't mean I want a clock that says AM and PM.
Here's a quick overview of some text editors: http://netrunner-mag.com/war-best-text-editor-of-them-all/I mostly use SciTE and Geany, myself.
In the terminal I am used to Nano. I have configured things so that Vi never pops up. Vi really gave me the creeps every time I ended up in it. Is there a distro that comes with Emacs rather than Vi?
In the graphical section I recently replaced Gedit with Medit.
I memorized the handful shortcuts I need for basic vi operation ages ago, so it doesn't really bother me that much.
All I ever use it for is basic config work on fresh installations ( once in a blue moon ) before I can install something like joe ( which has a pico / nano mode IIRC ).Emacs is probably too fat to put into the base system. At least that's more or less the reason we don't ship emacs in base - the code base is big enough as it is and emacs is much more of a maintenance headache than vi ( or rather nvi, since original 4BSD vi is pretty much dead ).

Is it similar to following Linux From Scratch website where you set kernel parameters etc. before installing the rest of the OS?
I have taken a look at kernel parameters a few times when some distro failed to boot post installation.
By "basic config work on fresh installation" do you mean the kind of modification of bootup lines that I described?
In GRUB, there's "minimum Emacs-like editing" on offer, which works for me. I would be totally lost if there was only Vi-like editing on offer in that place. Of course, I would also be lost if the help text were not there in GRUB interface, no matter what kind of editor it emulated. A bootloader is definitely not the place to try and see what happens if I press this or that. Intuitive operation and sufficient immediate guidance is important there.

Skype 4.2 still seems to be working. How's 4.3?
I figure something that deals with the i386 instruction set is a Pentium 4 at best, correct?
my now discarded Abit Ab9 Pro motherboard with a Core 2 Duo E6600 would likely blow whatever you've got out of the water in every single aspect imaginable.

Unfortunately my basic living budget is bust for this month. I may consider your offer next month. I'll write something in this thread to let you know.
