    Re: Python 2.5/2.6 vs Python 3.1?

    If you are teaching/learning a language why start with a legacy version? Most new programs will be using the newer version and you will only have to relearn it sometime anyway.

    Re: Wine unable to open EXE. Blocked in Lucid ?

    IMO this was a terrible decision - making it impossibly obscure to run applications is no substitute for security. The current state is completely unworkable.

  3. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot boot into Windows 7 after install 10.04

    Ok, it does not sound like a virus. Could you just try right clicking on your main hard drive in Windows Explorer and selecting the check (or fix errors, etc) option.

    Re: default font size

    Note that if you want files to appear as-if on either partition when they are shared, you can use links. You could also mount the shared directory as a subfolder of your home if this makes things...

    [SOLVED] Re: Problems writing to ext3 partition from Vista

    It really is not a good idea to continue using that driver as it is designed for older filesystems - if you need to share files then an ntfs partition is probably the easiest way to do that.
  7. [SOLVED] Re: ubuntu 9.10 can't change screen resolution from 1440x900

    Does it work on 10.04? That should include substantial video driver improvement, amongst other things.

    If not I suggest you report this as a bug.

    Most probably it won't make a difference performance wise, the main reason is flexibility.

    [ubuntu] Re: Manual Partitioning Benefits

    It is only worth it if you want to separate home and the rest of the filesystem. Also, you should generally just use ext4 for everything (it is usually faster).

  15. Re: Two things i have hated about Ubuntu. Do you share my frustration?

    Yes, Ethernet ports get used in servers so they have to support Linux - it is just a matter of waiting for progress.
  16. Re: Two things i have hated about Ubuntu. Do you share my frustration?

    It is great when support genuinely does move on. I personally pointed the developers to the correct firmware for one of my wireless cards and now it is supported out of the box.

    Re: Does anyone else hate Grub2?

    You should only change stuff in /etc/default/grub , trying to edit the other files will feel broken because, well, it is - they are not designed for editing.
