A quick Google found these:
No idea who made it or why it is only on a few mirrors, and i haven't so far found any documentation about it.
What i do know is that some UK magazines* have put the 'DVD' (ie this sized version) on...
That's the guy that bet the farm on Windows 8 isn't it? ...and then got sacked/resigned when it all went pear shaped?
I found it!
It's toward the bottom of the list - a 1.6gig iso
Yep. Very odd.
I can't find it there or on the main Ubuntu pages, but i definitely had one once - may have been a later point release than those i've checked - but it was certainly an oversized...
Yes i'm aware of that, but there used to be another larger iso available that included it and a lot of other apps (12.04 had one - i downloaded it from the Ubu website), I think it also had all the...
Speaking of not being able to find stuff: ....is there a BIG '(what was) DVD' iso available anywhere? Like they have with 12.04 - with Gimp and all the extra stuff?
Same here, though darned if i recall when we last had one ...12.04?
Was there no countdown page for this release?
...now i think about it, when was one last used.
I may be getting a little senile :)
I've no idea why they are still promoting BLAG at all. It is a dead distro that was based Fedora.
I believe the BLAG folks decided that it was easier for folk to BLAGify normal Fedora releases with...
Unity 7 is faster and more configurable OOTB than Unity 5 is :)
Plus of course, as others have noted, you get later versions of kernel and programs.
Cool! All the more time with the lovely Unity 7 :D
The shortcuts are listed in the default Conky right there on the desktop, and there is little that cannot be accessed through the Openbox menu.
IMO #! is a great distro for lighter or...
The new 2.2 is looking good :) Spatry reviews it above 'Right now!!!' :)
And that's all i was trying to establish. Thank you :)
Not at all.
All my machines are running up-to-date Debian derivatives.
Rather than trying to encourage others to use unsupported OS's I was hoping to help assure them that their old XP machines...
Works fine here.
Right. Thanks to all.
From all the above, i gather that - as long as a user surfs safely and conscientiously - an unsupported old version (eg 10.04) is perfectly fine to use on older machines that...
13.04 was generally very well received by most users. Are you sure it isn't a hardware issue?
I wasn't aware that pcmanfm even generated thumbnails, turns out it does(!).
This might help:
'lxde' you mean! ;)
and WacoJohn meant the lower left blue button (where thge windows 'start' would be)*
But yes, Lubuntu is just the thing for a machine of those specs.
In essence that was what i was asking about.
With the impending EOL of Win XP there will be a lot of hardware that won't be capable of running newer releases (due to driver support in newer...
Closing the thread is a bit harsh, let's just lay off the Unity hate. This was never about Unity!
The new kernel folks, let's focus on that eh?
Is Linus 'aving a larf or what? ;)
The purpose of this thread is to enlighten both myself and other users about the frequently mentioned dangers of running versions of Ubuntu that are past their 'end of life'.
Many folk (myself...
