Here are some very helpful things for Ubnutu (and somewhat Mac) users.

Step 1: Delete a whole word in 2 keypresses

Press Ctrl+Backspace.
<p>I now have 14.10 and am glad</p>
<p>how do i speed up ubuntu 14.04 </p>
<p>I am going to have Ubuntu 13.10 running so I have a question how do I download a program on Ubuntu using wine and a game or program installation disk?</p>
ok so i have 9.0.4 jaunty working with compiz fusion and all of that but, i do like your desktop theme, how do you get that to work?
Mods. Don't remember how. now have 7
This is a little skimpy, work on grammar and add some mare info On another note, are you using 9.04 yet?
No, An ISO of 8.10.
You should upgrade, Jaunty is faster and sleeker. Anyway, nice Job!
I`m changing to XP acusuly...
I mean actually.
Why? not to try to force anything on you, but Ubuntu will always run faster and more stable than windows. Also, you can try dualbooting.
I <em>am</em> dualbooting! (I hope...)<br/>
yay!....UPGRADE....and on that note, why do you want XP (better then vista and 7 though)
Cus` I loooooooooooooooooooooooooove batch.
you should lurve virtual box then...
1. I download it. 2. I play Hide-And-Seek with the file. 3. I click it 1000000000 times. 4. It messes with the groups. 5. It proves worthless.
Desktop Effects crashing when I try to enable my NVIDA graphics card... Firefox going slower than a turtle... Add & Remove crashing for no reason... Crazy Not Responding errors... Everything crashing just because of my Matrix shell script... So I ask you... Really?
Not always smoother, and it can take a while to set up drivers. But it is in my experience always faster
UPDATE: When the New Updates (or whatever) dialog popedup a few days ago, It asked me if I wanted to upgrade to 9.04 and when I clicked Yes it froze.
This is the best I can do.
I am always eager to learn about Linux versions. I have been using Puppy Linux from a Live disc on my laptop. I love that I can go onto the Internet with no virus protection and not need to worry about a thing. I also love the speed of loading and shutting down. When I need to use a Windows program, I just reboot without the Live disc. One day I will try Ubuntu or something like it, maybe in a dual boot configuration. Thanks.
Try Wubi. It installs Ubuntu on the windows partition, so there is no worry of losing work/hdd failure. When you want to uninstall, just use Windows Add/Remove. What to do is put a Ubuntu live CD in, while Windows is booted, and a menu will popup.
You can boot to a Ubuntu live cd. Or put it on a <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.pendrivelinux.com/category/new-usb-linux-tutorials/">USB drive</a>.<br/>In Windows, you can setup a <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/sharedaccess/default.mspx">steady state</a> user to browse the net without worry.<br/>
Can't wait for version 2. I'm sure it will be even better ;)

Um....on Mac to delete a word is Option + Backspace. Just to let you know.
Sorry... Haven`t studied the Mac keyboard yet. I have Ubuntu.(But my mom has a mac.)
Windows... *sighs* I might have to corrupt Ubuntu to get XP. (or Windows 7!!)<br/>
lol What? You mean XP doesn't like sharing? Ubuntu has a disk partitioner, and XP is too dumb to see the rest of the harddrive, so XP will never know it is there.
My dad might help me. (I talked about at dinner.)
