  1. Re: Good projects for someone new to Linux?

    My first home project with Ubuntu was a HTPC. I started with Plex & XBMC (Kodi now) and just grew from there. Since you are hands on I suggest you use the command line as much as possible. For me it...

    Not sure if this will work for you, but I needed to flash my BIOS on my Acer C7 Chromebook to get Ubuntu installed. It has been about 2 years since I did this, so if you have questions I might be...
  5. Re: Question for Dual- Booters (Which OS do you use most)?

  6. Re: Do Chromebooks Make Good Linux Laptops?

    I am actually running 14.04 32bit on a Acer C7 Chromebook. I use this as my daily driver. Personally I don't mind the performance issues. I am not trying to play games on this. Most of the servers I...
  7. Re: Do most routers use open-source or proprietary software?

    I think most routers tend to be closed source. I think it comes from the mindset of security through obscurity. Since people don't have access to the code, the router will be more secure.

  8. Re: I think I saw a version of ubuntu in virgin airlines

    It doesn't surprise me that airlines would be using Linux. They need to reduce cost anyway they can, and reducing software licenses can save a lot of money yearly.

    Re: Which "Windows" (7, 8, or 10)?

    Your plan should work. I did something similar with my home PC to try Windows 10. I didn't have any issues running Win10 on VirtualBox. I realized that Windows 10 wasn't for me and deleted the VM.

    Re: Which "Windows" (7, 8, or 10)?

    If you are going to be dual booting, I say stick with 8.1 if you can find it. If you are going to wipe and start fresh, get the latest and greatest. MS is doing a huge push to get everyone to Win10....

    Not sure if this is an option, but can you build a VM with 15.10? My daily driver is 14.04, but I have a few VMs with 15.10. This way I can test the OS to see if my apps will work, issues I might run...

  16. Re: Is there some restriction for upload speed in Ubuntu server ?
