    [ubuntu] Re: :cry:Ubuntu hangs on boot

    Try holding down shift key after post, so that you can get into the grub menu. Look at the available kernels, and try booting into an older one if you can. Then you could try re-installing the new...

    [ubuntu] Re: Random Freezes and Black Flickers

    But of course. You're using cmd.exe, in Windows. Your problem is with screen flickering in Ubuntu, correct? If the same problem happens in both Windows and Ubuntu, it may be a hardware malfunction.

    If you have something new to add that hasn't been said already, then I see nothing wrong with it. If, on the other hand, the entirety of your post is "bump", then I hate you.

    Re: Make Terminal look like Unix terminal

    Do you want this to apply to the system TTY's (when Xorg isn't running) or to a terminal emulator (i.e. gnome-terminal)? If it's the latter, and you're never going to be touching the TTY's, then it's...

    Poll: Re: Fastest web browser???

    I'll throw in my vote for Chromium (it uses far less memory and multithreads), but it ironically has had some problems with Google Docs (page becomes unresponsive). Also, the way it renders/displays...

    [SOLVED] Re: Want OS selection help/advice

    Plain old Debian is pretty good and, in my experience, is far lighter/faster than Ubuntu. The only annoying thing about it I've run across so far is that the GNOME power manager inhibitor applet...

    [all variants] Re: Open source projects in c++

    It would be good to start with Python. GTK is largely written in Python, and functions within its API can very easily be invoked via Python, though there's C/++ in it as well.
