  5. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 installation, additional login security?

  11. [ubuntu] Re: Can't boot back into Windows 8 and trobule with Ubuntu booting

    We do need to be clear on your set up otherwise we give inaccurate advice. I am guessing correctly? First hard disk (sda) with Windows 8 with a Wubi install of Ubuntu. But do you also have a second...
  12. Re: Which LTS version would you use in an SMB? 14.04 or 14.04.2?

  17. [ubuntu] Re: why are there 2 LTS versions on the go at once

    The newest versions of Ubuntu come with the latest stable versions of proprietary video drivers. Which, as has already been pointed out, do not always support older video adapters.
