    Poll: Re: Do You Actually Like Your Job?

    Where are the "sometimes" and "kind of" options? It's often not just a simple yes or no question. I'm a personal assistant, so my job varies and changes along with the lives of people I assist....

    [all variants] Re: Small Ubuntu laptop

    Well, my HP Mini 5101 works perfectly with Ubuntu 11.10 Unity 2D, and the HD screen is only 10 inches. So I guess I would recommend that or its successors.
