    Me again. Thanks for the replies. Honestly, I gave up on Ubuntu and never followed-up to resolve my original problem. Instead, I began using Ubuntu as a not-so-pleasant diversion at times--but...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Tired of fighting Linux/Ubuntu. Uninstall help?

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Tired of fighting Linux/Ubuntu. Uninstall help?

    I'm not certain by what you mean in saying "trying to run Windows software on a Linux system," but there is a Linux version of Second Life at the official web site. That is what I've attempted to...
  4. [ubuntu] Re: Tired of fighting Linux/Ubuntu. Uninstall help?

  5. [ubuntu] Re: Tired of fighting Linux/Ubuntu. Uninstall help?

    First, the concept. How would you like it if the heart surgeon performing open-heart surgery on you had his one bad day on the day you were having surgery?

  10. Poll: Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience

    Nothing but problems. I won't even go into them b/c Ubuntu has already wasted far too much of my time today.

    Market share? Ubuntu made no friends, but *LOTS* of enemies, today at my company. In...

    Thank goodness I'm not the only one with this opinion. In fact, I came here to say the very same thing. This upgrade was the absolute worst experience I've had with *ANY* operating system across 35...

    Re: HowTo:How to Install Java in Ubuntu/Kubuntu

    Re: Problem installing on either drive

    Should you attempt to reinstall on your primary drive, I have found it best to optimize the drive before installation.
