    Upgrading Lubuntu to the next version is really not that different from applying an XP Service pack. In fact it may be easier. Windows XP without a service pack reached end of life back in 2005. The...

  10. Re: If MS made a linux version that ran Windows programs natively

    Why not simply run Windows in a virtual machine under GNU/Linux? For a very large number of Windows programs this is a very simple and effective solution. Wine is of course also an option.

    Re: Install Windows 8 after Ubuntu and Windows 7

    This is a simple way to tell what is happening. While the hard drive may be un-bootable there is a very good chance that the files are still there. Ubuntu does read NTFS so unless the files were...

    On the surface this looks very much as a double edged sword for Microsoft. One thing to keep in mind is that the margins for Windows in the OEM channel are getting razor thin as the price of hardware...
  16. Re: Will Gimp and Inkscape work on Windows 8 RT (surface)?

    No. The reason is that Windows 8 RT is a censored operating system where only those applications approved by Microsoft via their store can be installed. It is very much the same as IOS in this...
