    Red face Several simple questions.

    Hello there!, i am a past Ubuntu user and im thinking about coming back.
    I currently only use 4 programs


    • Rift
    • Photoshop
    • Minecraft
    • Google Chrome

    Now the reason im thinking about switching from windows xp to Ubuntu because i have more ram than it will accept

    I have 4 gigs and its only using 2

    I also know the reason this is (because its 32 bit not 64)

    Ok Now to my questions

    Code:
    1. Is it possible to play Rift on Ubunutu?
    2. Is it possible to play Minecraft on Ubuntu?
    3. Can i run Google Chrome on Ubuntu
    4. What is the ram limit for Ubuntu?
    5. Can i run Rocket Dock on Ubuntu or does Ubuntu have a similiar built in feature.
    6. And is there a possibilty of Rift and Minecraft running worse on ubuntu than they do on my crappy xp os?
    7. How do you install ubuntu without a disc?
    8. How do i duel boot windows xp x32 and Ubuntu?
    Now for some helpful Links

    1. Is it possible to play Rift on Ubunutu?
    1. Maybe, I'm not sure
    2. Is it possible to play Minecraft on Ubuntu?
    It will probably run
  3. Can i run Google Chrome on Ubuntu
Most people use the independand chromium browser here, it's just the same as chrome. Chrome works also btw.
  • What is the ram limit for Ubuntu?
  • For ubuntu, you need at least 512MB, but Lubuntu can work with 128MB. The maximum limit is some terrabytes I think, for the 64-bit version.
  • Can i run Rocket Dock on Ubuntu or does Ubuntu have a similiar built in feature.
  • There are lots of docks like Docky, AWN, GLX-Dock ...
  • And is there a possibilty of Rift and Minecraft running worse on ubuntu than they do on my crappy xp os?
  • That depends on how good wine works with that game, I don't know
  • How do you install ubuntu without a disc?
  • you can use an usb-stick, google Unetbootin.
  • How do i duel boot windows xp x32 and Ubuntu?
  • the installation wizard will help you, it's the default choice.
