Minimum balance requirements are no joke, especially as banks have revved up their fee structures in the past couple of years.Personally, I managed to sneak away with a Bank of America checking account that had no minimum balance requirement, but that doesn't exempt me from their killer overdraft fees.When LMDE 2 was released it was announced that all LMDE users would be automatically upgraded to new versions of Mint Tools software and new Desktop Environments before they were released into the main edition of Linux Mint.On 20 February 2016, the Linux Mint website was breached by unknown hackers, who briefly replaced download links for a version of Linux Mint with a modified version that contained malware.In keeping with my recent financial makeover, I decided last month to start shifting whatever cash I have left in my checking account over to savings right before pay day. Finally, an alert popped up a full three days after I'd made the transfer. If I hadn't been monitoring my account during that time or signed up for my bank's alert system, I could have easily overdrafted my account without knowing it.Obviously, that would mean putting my account in "Dangerously Low" territory, but I figured I'd just ignore whatever alerts Mint sent. After speaking with Chang, I found out the site actually starts pulling back certain services for users who don't log in frequently enough.Which is fine, since Mint 18.1 is derived from this distribution exactly.
Unlike the other Ubuntu-based editions, LMDE was originally a rolling release based directly on Debian and was not tied to Ubuntu packages or its release schedule.
Transfers do not appear as income or expenses, so when you see a credit card payment logged as an expense, you can flag it as “Transfer—Credit Card Payment.” If this is a recurring payment, you can turn that category into a rule (see above).
Using the “transfer” category will keep your expense details intact without double counting credit card payments.
Following its release, Linux Mint 2.0 "Barbara" was the first version to use Ubuntu as its codebase.
Linux Mint had few users from these early versions until the release of Linux Mint 3.0, "Cassandra." using its package repositories and using it as a codebase.
In just three hours, Bank of America pinged me with a courtesy note that my account was low. "As long as you're an active user, meaning you have used the site in the past 30 to 90 days, we'll go out to all the banks (linked to your account) and get the information from scraping," she said.
