    [ubuntu] Re: Opera slow when using facebook

    Maybe Opera isn't top notch any more. Try Konqueror (which actually doubles as a file manager)

  8. [ubuntu] Re: Please, Help Me Get Rid of Windows 8

    I know what this is. It's that stupid 'secure boot' thing that all new PCs have. Ubuntu needs a cert to boot, and I bet it doesn't have one yet.

  16. [ubuntu] Re: can downloaded ubuntu programs be saved on dvd/cd?

    I know in Fedora you can make a Service Pack with the apps you have.
    In Ubuntu, you have to go to /usr/gnome/share/apps and copy 'em to a flash disk.
