      1. @Unixer,

  5. Would be nice if Skype actually worked.
    Followed the instructions, get Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    This on a Fedora 23 system, fully updated

  6. Dropbox is a good service for sync. Arent you concerned about all the cloud hacks these days? Have you tried Binfer? Here’s about direct file sharing

  7. I started using Redhat years ago, RH5 i think. didn’t know anything about computers or linux. lost track of Redhat after Cedora Core started using the unity desktop. hated that. went a few years using Mint, Ubuntu, and they are all great os’s, but i decided to give Fedora a try again, with 23. installed it, not crazy about the workstation version, found spins, and here i am on 23MATE-compiz d.e. a bit of a challenge getting it to install smoothly into ubuntu bootloader. however i now have 6 os’s running out of ubuntu bootloader, and this is probably going to be my favorite. Fedora rocks again, thanks to the Spins, and your handy little treatment of it. Great Fedora site, thanks much for all your efforts.

    1. @Pat,
      Nice to hear your words. Fedora also good distro rpm based system. I’m using Fedora more than 3 years, still loving to play most of the time with Fedora…) Keep rocking, hands of to Open-Source…)
