He's an idiot. Personal perception of how something works does not make it fact.

While he has some valid complaints, he's blowing them way out of proportion. He reminds me of my father who whines about how his computer gets slow or broken because he plays around with things and doesn't understand what he's doing. He then blames the computer rather than accepting it's a PEBKAC issue.  After the bajillionth time of fixing it, I finally told him to learn how to do it himself.

Any OS has its own quirks and issues. Stable is relative. Between Windows, VL and Mint, all 3 are stable and I have no issues at all with them.

That's a lot of text. Maybe after I've had my coffee.

-- okay, taken with a grain of salt, you can find some useful info in there.

3D printers are a big hit in the maker scene. But I don't see it as something you will see in every household.
The very large MOSI ("Museum of Science and Industry") just over a ways in Tampa, Florida,...has an impressive exhibition of 3D printers, and some of it's printed devices.  Seems they really try to show and exhibit the capabilities it has to "print" artificial (and working models) of hands and limbs.  Even has a film of a one-legged duck getting a 3D printed leg (LOL!).

And my daughter just got me one of those 10inch screen, RCA Viking Pro Tablets, with the detachable keyboard.  Now I gotta figure out what to do with it.

Since we don't know what version of VL you are using, or how you installed chromium: Here are generic instructions: Using your file manager, navigate to "/usr/share/applications", find the icon for Chromium and copy it to your Desktop.

I need to get my printer set up now that I found the #$)(*&@# power cord for it (I hate proprietary connections!).

I'll give the scanner a whirl if I can get the printer to work under VL (it's a Canon).

There's no Chromium icon under "Internet" in your menus?
