    Re: To many people bad mouthing Ubuntu and Unity

    My (old) computer runs faster and with fewer bugs under 11.04 compared to 10.10.

    Unity is way better for me. Cheers Canonical!

    Re: Your Favourite (obscure/old) Sci-Fi TV Shows?

    Space: Above and Beyond was very difficult to watch in the UK, as Channel 4 changed the time it was on pretty much every week. I don't think they ever re-ran it, either.

    Re: Wubi Doing Damage?

    You should run chkdsk /f /r otherwise it won't repair the damage.

    Chkdsk corrects disk errors only if you specify the /f command-line option.

    You wear suits to interviews. If he doesn't know to do that, it's a worrying sign.

    Just one stick, but it runs Windows fine. I've tried two Ubuntu versions now, 10.04 and 9.10 - I don't think it's that... thanks for your thoughts though!
