    Re: Windows defender or AVG free

    After some digging around, I found that it cannot be uninstalled. I found it as a "Service." I stopped the service, but then clicked on properties and disabled it. It was the first time I did...

    Re: Windows defender or AVG free

    Hmmm.... I did say it. The version I'm using now is Win7.



    A built-in Windows component can be uninstalled? Really? You don't really mean disabled, no?

    Re: Nasa uses Ubuntu for Curiosity rover!

    I'm not a detractor. I just don't like Unity. It's why I went with Kubuntu.

    Re: Linux Malware Released

    Likely there will be a patch to plug that security breach within a few days. It would be hard to sell an exploit software that would be patched out before the buyer of said exploit could use it. ...

    Re: Windows defender or AVG free

    Well then. Since I use Avast! on my Win7 box. How do I disable Windows Defender? I guess I don't need it. Right? For the longest time, during updates, I'd uncheck the box for Windows Defender...

    Re: Nasa uses Ubuntu for Curiosity rover!

    Well, the frame of the screenshots has the Ubuntu logo but I can't tell what's on the monitors the JPL/NASA guy is using. Yeah, I believe it's possible for NASA to be using Linux, even the military...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Can't Install 'buntu 13.04 on External HDD via eSATA

    O.K. Here's what's happened. Thinking that it might be the Marvell SATA controller, I took a look at it and found that it's settings were correct: AHCI, bootable Yes. Correct for Windows, but ...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Can't Install 'buntu 13.04 on External HDD via eSATA

    The RAID is in the Vantec external HDD enclosure. The RAID is built and configured in the external enclosure. It's a JMicron SATA RAID controller built into the external HDD enclosure, outside of...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Can't Install 'buntu 13.04 on External HDD via eSATA

    You're saying that the problem might be with the Marvell SE9120 eSATA controller on the motherboard, and not the JMicron RAID SATA controller in the Vantec HDD external enclosure? I've tried other...
  10. Re: What was your start with Linux, and then Ubuntu?

    I started with SuSE Linux, before Novell bought it. I kept using it for a while after they bought it, but they started playing funny with the open source community with their licensing, or...

    Re: Who here uses KDE

    KDE and Kubuntu, forever! (Unity killed it for me. I miss Gnomebuntu).
  12. Re: Does anyone use fancy Compiz effects any more?

    I love those effects. But I gotta get a nice set-up before I try adding the fancy stuff later. Sometimes I'll re-install 'buntu a few times before getting it just right. Then I'll add the fancy...

  15. [SOLVED] Re: Can't Install 'buntu 13.04 on External HDD via eSATA

    Based on the question you posed, I surmised that would mean that my hardware is supported - since I din't have to install any drivers in Win7 to get it to work. Since you asked that, I answered...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Can't Install 'buntu 13.04 on External HDD via eSATA

    No drivers. Win7 saw it during installation without any need to install additional drivers.
  17. [SOLVED] Can't Install 'buntu 13.04 on External HDD via eSATA

    I have a Vantec HX4R external enclosure. It seems to be using a hardware SATA/RAID adapter by JMicron. I can only find it listed as "JMicron H/W RAID5 ATA Device", in Win7 Device Manager, and during...

    I couldn't stand Unity... I use Kubuntu, now. Cannonical is a business, so they have to make business-like decisions. They're trying to sell products and services to companies and corporations...

    Re: What browser do you use and why?

    I use Firefox. It's reliable, it's friendly, and Mozilla isn't datamining everything I do online to sell my activities to third party advertisers, or anything like that.
  21. Re: ... But my cynicism is just too overpowering...

    I guess I'm just jumping at shadows, then. Perhaps from Canonical's point of view, they're making lemonade from lemons... (making the best of a bad situation). You're right, my in-boxes aren't...

    Did it have to be Ubuntu 1 for the login? I mean, wasn't it so very convenient that in the course of restoring the forums, they got us to use Ubuntu 1 login and, perhaps, got us one step closer to...
