I have Linux Mint.
Guilty. I just couldn’t stand Unity launcher in Ubuntu 12 and 13. I wanted a taskbar and I wanted a system menu. The Unity launcher just didn’t work for me. I was disoriented.
So I tried Mint Olivia. It looks pretty enough, and except for having to override some shortcuts, I’ve only had a few problems with it.
But then I started being plagued by an OpenDNS – http://www.website-unavailable.com. It would show up unexpectedly when I wanted to access addresses in our VPN (and they were available, too). It happened intermittently and was very annoying. I switched my chrome plugins on and off, I searched chrome settings high and low. But lo and behold, there it happened again and again when I least expected it. BTW, my Chromium didn’t have this problem, neither did Firefox. Only Chrome, but that’s what I use most.
And this is only today that I find that what I was battling against all this time is my Linux Mint default settings.
Thank you, guitarmanvt.
