    [ubuntu] Re: Utopic time constantly wrong

    The 4 hour difference between UTC and US east cost ist correct (NYC is -5 from UTC, modified by 1 hour for DST).

    Re: Going Mad

    It makes sense not overwhelm the relatively small file storages on phones and expecially not considering the potentially high cost of mobile internet access.

    Re: Ubuntu 14.04 Beta - =O

    You don't need to re-install.
    If you keep updating you'll get the same packages as any alpha or beta release.

    Same goes for final release.
    The only reason to re-install is to fix a seriously...

    [ubuntu] Re: Just report about Unity speed on x201

    I can confirm that.

    14.04 feels noticably snappier on my Aus F201E (2 GB version that came pre-installed with Ubuntu 12.04).

    Apart from a Bluetooth regression everything has been great after...
  7. [all variants] Re: Clarify difference between upgrading and re-installing?

    Probably nothing (but didn't check). The drivers get updated with your new kernel anyway and the filesystem laout doesn't change much after the initial design.

  8. [all variants] Re: Clarify difference between upgrading and re-installing?

    The reason that there is no clear consensus is because both sides are right.

    Re: Proposed Ubuntu "pure Gnome" respin

    You got used to it and it works for you - great. No problem.
