UM not correct. W10 is / was available as a technical preview version. I have a copy which is running in Vbox. Unfortunately I forgot my password. You may want to check the amount of memory you allocated. I have mine set at 3300. I revisited the web site where I downloaded the iso file, and it does...

I don't know if this has any bearing on your situation, but W10 is only a free upgrade from W7 or W8. You can't do a fresh clean install without a license. I've not yet done it, but will be experimenting soon with my playtoy laptop. It has a legit/licensed version of W7; I will slap in a spare driv...

I former work colleague of mine who's a Windows aficionado suggested I give Windows 10 a try. "It's free!," he said. I told him that I have no interest in putting anything Windows-related on my computer, "free" or otherwise, but that I'd give it a go as a virtual machine. I downl...

I thought maybe some of you might be interested in this. http://linux.softpedia.com/blog/solus-ditches-adobe-s-flash-gets-boot-time-down-to-1-4-seconds-487006.shtml I have not tried it. I just think this is the way things are going to go. It seems like a lot of folks are sick enough of Flash that i...

There is nothing wrong with having W7 on your computer --------- as long as it is on a partition you never use!! Quite true. I can understand that cruft would build up by installing and removing too many applications in Windows. But I've found that Windows will slow down all by itself by just using...

I can't help myself - I have to chime in here. This was a hard lesson. It's one of those times when a wipe/system reinstall is the only option left. But >780 updates seem like a lot of updates to install all at once. When confronting that many updates, make sure you have a Plan B before hitting the ...

@JimC

Good point! I didn't realize I can add more "wired connections" with different attributes. Verrrry cool! Thanks for pointing this out.

I did write my defaults down, and 'automatic' did bring them back. Thanks! I used the "Automatic (DHCP)" setting as you advised without putting in any preset DNS numbers, rebooted, and the system automatically defaulted to the right DNS servers. I don't know why I had used the "Autom...

It seems that OpenDNS is incompatible with the security features of Firefox and Chrome. It will be important to confirm that on other machines/networks. Agreed. I'm surprised that this issue hasn't come up before, since it seems everyone uses Facebook these days and a lot of people use OpenDNS. I s...

I encountered an issue in another thread, which I think should be addressed here instead. I had been using OpenDNS, which I found was causing issues with Firefox and Chrome security pinning. I originally set up OpenDNS using the method shown in the Wiki, by editing the /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf file. ...
