    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox 'Grays Out' a lot

    FYI Firefox 30 on my machine is using 968 megabytes at this time - so 1gb RAM probably isn't nearly enough.
    On my 32 bit Windows 7 machines with 3gb RAM I have trouble with Firefox bogging down...

  6. [ubuntu] Re: Recovering data from partition after changing NTFS to ext4 - help!

    No sweat - just copy all your important data to your hard drive from your backups. You do regularly back up any important files don't you? To at least two places?

  10. [ubuntu] Re: Sharing printer from Ubuntu server to Windows XP

  11. Re: Which is better: AMD Athlon 64 processor 3800+ or Pentium 4?

    If the price is low enough on the Pentium computer, what's wrong with having two computers? To me computers are tools and I figure that I could never have too many tools (or toys).

    [ubuntu] Re: High RAM usage in Windows 7

    OP said he was using WUBI. I have never used WUBI but I think the idea is that Ubuntu is a program running within Win 7. I would expect to see increased memory usage.
