    Re: Haven't Switched Yet Advice?

    The way you've described the evolution of your experiences, I'd say you are approaching Linux properly: with eyes open and a minimum of preconceptions. I am basing that conclusion on the fact that...

    [ubuntu] Re: New user. Ubuntu not shutting down.

    Hi grahammechanical,

    You are of course correct that GRUB is long gone by the time shutdown occurs. However, it does influence how the system is set up for the entirety of the computing session....
  4. Re: What was the oldest computer that you have ever used?

    My pleasure.

    Most people haven't heard of it either. It wasn't very popular. The world of that period was still stuck on big iron. I didn't know anything about its history at the time. Certainly...

    Hi kari2 and welcome to Ubuntu and the forums.

    I'm afraid you're going into this with somewhat unrealistic expectations. Linux is not Windows, and the vast majority of your Windows programs will...

    Hi robi4 and welcome to Ubuntu and the forums.

    There is little that you can do to improve on the OS front. Lubuntu is already one of the lightest weight flavours going. Another flavour is not...

    [ubuntu] Re: Turning off the hover-click on touchpad
