Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

Personal partition setup, I wanted the data partition to be fat32 to do disk image of the Linux system partition on the fat32.

If I had a problem I wanted to be able to recover my data partition with Windows. Ext drivers for Windows are not really reliable on writing, likewise Linux ntfs drivers are unreliable on writing.

Fat32 is very reliable, yet lacks of "security", journaling and 4+ GB file size. But for ARM cross development, you hardly need such file size.
