  1. Re: Thinking about switching over to Ubuntu from EOS -- minimum size for root partit

    It would help if you told us the hardware specification of your machine. The minimum specification for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is:

  2. Re: Is There a Better Way - Backup Protection

  3. Re: Ubuntu 6.06 to 6.10 upgrade using edgy.tar.gz problem

  10. Re: Gnome Vs others Virtual Desktops

    I go back to the days before desktop environments and before the mouse was invented. Everything was done using keyboard shortcuts. I still prefer Ctrl+c = Copy; Ctrl+v = Paste; Ctrl+x = Cut. Over the...

    Not a chance! :)

    In the past I was able to keep up with the direction Ubuntu was being taken in. But not anymore. Canonical is going in so many directions and it is beyond my understanding to work...
