    Here is my desktop for the time being. I like the simplicity and the effectiveness of it. What Windows 8 could have been without the tiling/confusing bit.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Suspicious "Untitled Folder" appeared on Desktop? Should I delete it?

    IMO and instead of trying an antivirus through Wine, I'd rather just wipe your home folder clean of the .wine folder and reinstall the wine program.

    Re: Microsoft to release Office for Linux ?

    I run Office 2007 with Wine. It's stable and reliable and the format output is not a cause for worry (unlike LibreOffice). However I regret that the first loading time is always so important (damn...

    Thanks, all. I guess it basically means 12.04.2 is coming VERY soon.

  18. Re: Unity - the underlying shadow is gone and I can't right-click on the desktop!

    I found a solution that fixed the problem, by reinstalling a pure Unity Gnome on Ubuntu.

    Thanks, I did that but it didn't help. I am indeed running the regular Unity session; I'm afraid Elementary configuration borked my system, but I can't seem to see where and how to fix it.
