    Re: CMS? Wiki? Suggestions needed

    It is basically a wiki with different levels of access depending on user groups.
    There are obviously...
  3. Re: Request for advice on choice of portable device

    If you want to receive calls on your Nexus 7, any sip provider should work with 3G. Not quite the same as Google Voice with call forwarding etc, but depends on what you need.

    Re: LibreOffice vs MSOffice compatibility

    Why do you say you need to save in .docx at all? If you've been using LO for 2 years, why not just keep using it?

    [ubuntu] Re: best way to do "mac" style in Ubuntu?

    I'm hoping so too... I've installed Elementary on my Netbook and subsequently put Pantheon on top of Ubuntu on my main computer (which was a bit of a struggle)... Wouldn't want to have to take a step...

    Re: Is it cruel to keep pets?

    This represents cruelty.

    The human interest in keeping "purebred" pets has ensured pets have been bred with siblings, parents and children over repeated generations (incest in humans).

    I remain a fan... But be warned: Pantheon interferes with other DEs, so it can be troublesome if installed on top of another Ubuntu / derivative OS (from personal experience).

    [OtherOS] Re: JoliCloud OS - Problem - Please, help me!

    Why do you need JoliOS?
    As far as I am aware, it is based on an out-dated (pre 2012) Ubuntu, so probably has no drivers for newer hardware.
    You might be better off installing a recent (usable) OS...

    Would it work? Yes.

    There are many specialised Linux distros / other OS that are designed to act as a router. Ubuntu has that capacity if configured correctly.

  12. Re: Basic web security question: what should I do to secure personal web server?

    This is a bit misleading... There is no genuine "free" tier - only a 12-month free period. And credit card details are still required (therefore, only available to over 18s).
    So this is only really...

    It seems pretty simple to me:

    Clean shaven is better in some industries

    My brother thinks Ubuntu is bloated, since it includes drivers for things that his computer doesn't have; his choice of Gentoo foregoes that.
