    Yeah, I first heard it as a college student on a local alternative rock station back in the early 2000s. They kept playing it well into the 2010s. I haven’t heard it much on the radio recently, though.

    Great news, I’ve been using Linux Mint (Cinnamon) since 2016 as my only operating system without any regrets. The newer versions of Cinnamon keep getting more and more stable too. I have virtually no hard crashes or freezes anymore.

    Yep. Windows XP was my last Windows and when it became obsolete I permanently switched to Linux Mint (without dual-booting). Everything that I use has worked very well. I’ve never even thought about switching back to Windows.

    Yeah, I’m around 40 and I played these games as they were coming out back in the 1990s. I call them either “FPS” or “Retro FPS”…

    People born in the 1940s/50s never played them much. Although my dad did play Wolfenstein3D and Doom some, but that was not common for people in his age group.

    I use the terminal in a variety of circumstances (like working on Node.js and other programming projects) where there is either no good GUI alternative or using a CLI is actually faster. I’ve been using computers since 1989 and my first operating system was MS-DOS, so the thought of using a CLI when necessary doesn’t bother me.

    Windows XP Pro was the last Windows that you could install on as many of your machines as you wanted without contacting M$. When I found that out, I knew that XP would be my last Windows and that I would inevitably switch to Linux. When XP became totally obsolete, I permanently switched over to Linux Mint. I’ve never gone back to Windows and I have zero reason to ever do so. I promote Linux whenever I can.

    I have to recommend Linux Mint. I’ve been using Linux Mint (Cinnamon) for over seven years now as my only operating system (and no dual booting) without any major issues or any desire to “distro hop.” Cinnamon has also gotten a lot more stable during that time too. I have almost no crashes anymore.
