Wow, does this ever explain a lot of things about how this Aspire Z3 has been behaving for EFI boot! Now that I have gotten over the initial surprise (and irritation) of finding this, I have to say that this is a powerful and flexible way to manage the EFI boot priority list. But geez, could they have buried it any deeper, and made it any more obscure than this?

So, my very lovely Acer Aspire Z3 All-In-One desktop system is running even better, from an SSD. Even better, it is completely Windows-free. What a nice weekend this has been!

On Sunday 21st February a message was posted to the Linux Mint blog stating that the website has been hacked and the intruder managed to post a link to an unofficial ISO version of Linux Mint.

For more information about what has happened visit http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2994.

The Linux Mint blog tells you how to check whether you have downloaded a dodgy version of Linux Mint.

Now this post is a little bit like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted because not once in any of my guides have I told you to check the MD5/SHA256 checksums for the downloaded ISO files of any distribution to make sure you have a legitimate copy.
