  1. Re: Removing Ubuntu and going back to Windows Vista?

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Virtualbox Ubuntu on Windows 7 Home Premium....

    Also, you don't need to use the extra application to mount the .ISO image. Unnecessary step. Just point Virtual box to the .ISO file and it will do the rest.

    I've owned 2 of these machines, but it's been 5 or 6 years ago. Almost positive it has a Broadcom in it.
  9. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to install Ubuntu 13.04 alongside Windows 7

    the process you're describing sounds like wubi, which is a windows installer. It doesn't create a partition, the install program runs in Windows. It creates a huge file, and treats it like a drive....

  12. [ubuntu] Re: It there a LTS version of linux that looks exactly like OSX

    It's not exact, but Xubuntu can themed up pretty close, using avant window navigator (in the repos) for the dock, and Slingshot menu for a pretty good imitation of Launchpad....
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Re-install windows 7 without removing Ubuntu

  17. [ubuntu] Re: Installing Ubuntu on Dell with No Linux Experience

    I think he meant dual-booting with Windows.

    I put my vote in for Bohdi. Either that or Lubuntu. Bohdi is a lot prettier and more fun to use.
