  5. [ubuntu] Re: Preserving list of installed software on upgrade

    If you want to do a clean install, you have to reinstall all programs. Thats what a clean install means - to start from scratch.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: What is the best version of Linux OS?

    If you have to ask, you want a newbie friendly distribution such as Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Dont think they are not good because they are easy. Its quite the opposite. They are REALLY good.

    If you know the hostname, you can just ping it:

    That runs the nano command as you. Your user will always run all commands you...
  20. [ubuntu] Re: What do I have to do to add some lines to "~/.bashrc"?
