    MORE INFORMATION ON TORRENTS
    Using a torrent or bittorrent client means that you will be downloading the Mint ISO file from other users around the world who are also using a torrent client: it's called a p2p, or peer-to-peer, connection. Once the download is complete, the torrent program will begin "seeding" the Mint ISO. In other words, it will make the Mint ISO file available to other torrent users, and can possibly use your Internet bandwidth to upload the Mind ISO file for other users.

    To stop sharing the Mint ISO file after the download is complete, either uninstall Deluge, or (1) Go into the Deluge program, (2) Right-click on the Mint ISO file name in the main Deluge window, (3) Left-click "Remove torrent", (4) Once the new window opens up, left-click "Remove torrent" again. Deluge will no longer take up your Internet bandwidth to share the ISO file. Good to go! :)

  • Seven Linux Distros

    Linux distro comparison of Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Manjaro, Slacko Puppy, Lubuntu, Zorin OS, and Debian Jessie with the Raspberry Pi Desktop!

    All distros were downloaded as an ISO image and written to USB media (for testing and/or full installation) using Etcher, which is available from: https://etcher.io/

    The different distros featured in this video can be obtained from the following links. Please note that all of the below are provided in good faith, and that testing and/or installing a new operating system should be done with care. Testing a distro from a USB drive should not delete files or otherwise damage your computer. However, actually installing a new operating system will replace your existing one unless you decide to dual boot, and this can cause issues . . .

  • Operating Systems: Crash Course Computer Science #18

    So as you may have noticed from last episode, computers keep getting faster and faster, and by the start of the 1950s they had gotten so fast that it often took longer to manually load programs via punch cards than to actually run them! The solution was the operating system (or OS), which is just a program with special privileges that allows it to run and manage other programs. So today, we’re going to trace the development of operating systems from the Multics and Atlas Supervisor to Unix and MS-DOS, and take at look at how these systems heavily influenced popular OSes like Linux, Windows, MacOS, and Android that we use today.

    Pop OS and Zorin OS are two next-gen Linux distros that ship with advanced features. They are the next iteration in the evolution of desktop Linux. In this video, I will compare then side by side with respect to performance, speed, looks, stability, and features and we'll decide which among the two is the best.
