Re: Website to Ubuntu (deb)
Making a Unity Web App seems like a vastly easier way to go than rewriting everything from scratch. By adding a few commands to your web page it will be able to pop up notifications to your desktop or display the number of unread messages in the app's icon.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
