Here is Chris upgrading my old computer to Ubuntu Linux, a free operating software that is just as handy as anything Microsoft has. At least, Chris thinks so, and I've been using it for the past couple weeks on Chris's machine just to try it out. My old operating system was Windows-- the one that Microsoft is going to stop upgrades for next month. Thanks, Chris!
I configured my new VPS with Ubuntu Linux + NGINX Awesome performance. For the first time rather than Apache I am using NGINX ... Now my server responses faster than ever.. If you do not want to compromise with fast loading performance then use NGINX.. But if you can't jump from Apache to NGINX because need of some features of Apache then use NGINX as reverse proxy along with Apache... NGINX is really incredible
How To Fix Any Computer Will your computer not boot? Is it running slow? Are viruses corrupting your PC and causing it not to work? A lot of people ask us, "How do I fix my computer?" One sure way to fix all software-related problems is to do a full factory restore. A factory restore will wipe the hard drive clean and restore the computer to it's factory state. The computer will look and behave like it is brand new, and will have no "memory" of it's previous state. More specifically the computer will format the hard drive and reinstall windows, and then will install the proper software drivers for your computer. By starting the computer over just like it was out of the box, all problems will be fixed unless they are hardware-related. Even if you believe the computer is having hardware-related problems, it is always a good idea to do a factory restore before you start to replace any parts. Besides a factory restore, there is also a Windows System Restore where the computer is restored to a previous date. T ...
Welp, back on Ubuntu Linux after a very disappointing Windows outing. I swear this machine is driven by demons.

What to do if you love Windows XP and hate Windows 8. The impending expiration of support for Windows XP leaves users who still depend on the ancient OS with a handful of viable options. . Unless you’ve been living a Luddite existence in a cabin off the grid in the Rockies somewhere, you’ve probably heard by now that Microsoft will officially stop supporting Windows XP in just a few weeks on April 8. The question that Windows XP users need to answer is how they intend to handle the situation — particularly if they’re part of the crowd that isn’t fond of the new Windows 8 / 8.1 OS. At face value, the choice seems binary — either switch to Windows 8 or keep using Windows XP. In fact, there are a few other alternatives that lie between those two extremes. The best way to determine the best solution for you is to address the prevailing issues and figure out which option addresses most or all of them for you. Let’s take the issues most often cited by Windows XP loyalists and/or Windows 8 bashers ...

I finished my switch to Ubuntu Linux, as was quite happy to find State of Decay runs flawless ala Steam under WINE...then I realized WHY...SoD is a Quake engine game..and ALL Quake engine games run like the wind under Linux even if they are made for Windows. Gotta love the foresight of Id Software. Those guys always made sure their stuff was developed for cross platform support, and supported OpenGL to its fullest. Its also why so many Quake Engine games are still among the most played of all time (like Team Fortress 2, Half-Life series, L4D series, Garry's Mod, Counter Strike, etc) Plus happy to find NWN2 also working well, not to mention SWGm and my Open Source games all have native Linux versions (like Oolite, FreeCiv, etc)
The quest began when my own notebook computer became incapacitated due to a hard disk failure. We have moved from Thailand to Bacolod and then move again to Laguna, so getting a new hard disk was out of question. My sister Joy offered to lend her notebook computer for use as she was lent an Apple MacBookPro by her employer for use. I tried installing my usual Linux distribution, Ubuntu Linux but the latest version would not run on the venerable Compaq Presario 2000. The notebook computer was more than 6 years old. The problem was the updated Ubuntu runs the latest kernel version with the PAE feature for the CPU turned on. The venerable Compaq does not have that kind of CPU it's just a standard Pentium Celeron. So I have to get a Linux distribution that works with it. The quest began. I first tried the other version of Ubuntu, Xubuntu 10.04 LTS. It did not work, still the PAE. I even tried the alternative installation CD, it will not complete the boot process, it just crashes. I then tried the Slackware 14 ...

Securing XP PCs after Microsoft drops support Susan BradleyBy Susan Bradley All good things must come to an end; in less than four months, Microsoft will officially end support for Windows XP. Here are the steps I'll take to ensure that my remaining XP machines are as secure as they can be. (Note: Many of the following tips can be applied to newer versions of Windows, too.) What does "end of support" mean? After April 8, 2014, Microsoft will — among other things — no longer release security updates for its 12-year-old operating system. Third-party hardware and software vendors might also take a cue from Redmond and drop development of XP- ...
Hi there! I'm from Argentina and my MBP 15" broke 3 months ago. I started to follow the threads in the Apple User Forums and was using the different workarounds until no one worked any more. So, I installed Ubuntu Linux and was able to tell the boot manager to switch off the discrete GPU, so the system would only see the integrated graphics card. Now the computer works, some tasks can be done with it, although I use a lot of OSX apps that don't exist on Linux. Just wanted to share my experience, it's not a solution but maybe will be useful to someone.

NEWS FOR EARLY RISERS: TECHNOLOGY NEWS: Acer is planning to roll out an all in one Desktop PC, anytime now. nothing unusual about that you might think, but there is because the TA272HUL does not run windows, and obviously it doesnt run MAC OSX either because that is restricted to Apple computers. that may make you think it runs Ubuntu Linux, but it doesnt run that either! but what it does run is Google Android jellybean, and although android is actually based on Linux its quite obviously not a desktop operating system which PC advisor think is a little odd for a Desktop computer. its a rather large all in one boasting a 27 inch screen with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. it uses the new nvidia tegra 4 quad core processor, with 16gb of storage, a 2 megapixel webcam, and a usb 3.0 port. connection wise it has HDMI, display ports and the onboard system ram is expected to be 2gb. so not only does this computer run a mobile operating system, it also has the same internal components as a high end tablet com . ...

Ten Tech Heroes of 2013: 4: Mark Shuttleworth Mark Shuttleworth wound up in the center of controversy within the Open Source community. Many in the community pointed fingers of blame at Shuttleworth for moving away from the Wayland X Server to an in-house solution. Nearly everyone was up in arms. But Shuttleworth had a vision, one that could easily skyrocket the usage of Linux on the desktop and mobile platforms. I give Shuttleworth this nod for sticking to his plan and continuing to make Ubuntu Linux one of the most user-friendly Linux distributions on the planet. If Shuttleworth has his way, Linux will become a household name.
Ever try to fix your computer without the recovery disks? A Gateway laptop running Win 7 64 bit went South on me this week. I should have made those recovery disks. I did get the recovery partition option to reinstall the OS and save my personal files. All the programs would be wiped out which was fine with me since they are mostly cloud based SaaS apps, and easy to install. Besides, the machine was really getting bogged down. The biggest problem was the recovery option didn't work the first time and failed to come up after that. I thought to myself, "Do I really want to keep messing with this?" So many different ideas online for resolving the situation, but here's what I did - I downloaded UBUNTU Linux at another station and used a freeware app that creates an UBUNTU installer on a USB stick. I booted the failed Windows laptop off the USB stick, created a partition for UBUNTU, installed Linux and on reboot, I got a boot options menu that included the Gateway Windows recovery partition, the Windows parti ...

Ubuntu Linux Desktop for PC's. More and more businesses are looking at ways to decrease their spend on "arm and leg" software licence fees. Ubuntu Linux Desktop offers a stable and secure desktop experience for most users. So what do you get? Natively, Ubuntu Linux will give you a base operating system with all the gadgets required to get your PC up and running. In addition, it comes natively with LibreOffice straight out of the box. How does it all come together? With our growing dependance on the cloud and cloud computing, most of the tasks that we perform on our PC's, Laptops and Tablets are browser based. Hence, Ubuntu Linux Desktop is a good fit into your organisation as it provides you with the ability to connect to remote, pooled or shared resources with perfect ease. Add on Mozilla Thunderbird and you have a fine email client. Its the perfect small footprint productivity platform that all businesses should consider.

Okay, something a lot of people say to me about Linux is this. "If more people used Linux, there would be viruses like their is on windows." This I laugh. There is about 20,000,000 people that use Ubuntu Linux. (Not including the other kinds which can have millions too.) That is far more than enough for people to start making Viruses for Linux, but the fact is that Linux was just made secure from the start, while windows just sorta added that, not having that in mind. Windows virus count : 1,000,000+ Most still active. Linux Virus count: 47 Most depreciated. (no longer work.) 20,000,000 people using it, and I am not seeing tons of viruses.

INFORMATION ABOUT TORRENT _ What is a torrent? A torrent file stores data about files for use with BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer file-sharing protocol that enables users to send and receive files in small pieces to and from computers across the Internet. Hundreds of millions of people use BitTorrent globally, as of January 2012, according to the protocol's creator. Because of the distributed nature of BitTorrent sharing, and the fact that small pieces of the files are downloaded and then reassembled by the software, BitTorrent uses less resources than direct downloading of files, resulting in faster speeds for the downloader and lower bandwidth costs for the file provider. For this reason, companies such as Blizzard, makers of World of Warcraft, and Canonical, makers of Ubuntu Linux, use BitTorrent to distribute their software, as of February 2012. How torrenting works All torrenting takes place using a torrent program. Examples of torrenting programs include uTorrent, Azureus and the original BitTorrent. Th ...

Like I have promised and we voted for, it's time for a Kernel Compilation Tutorial Kernel Compilation: Introduction: why the necessity of kernel compilation?? The kernel in an operating system is the most important part. All the functionality of a system lays in the kernel. From the most important functions of the kernel we can remember : -allocating resources(CPU, memory) -starting stopping processes -it contains the drivers for the hardware -operations on the filesystem (every filesystem based operation has an associated function in the kernel) -firewall and routing Upgrading the kernel can be done in 2 ways: 1. using an already compiled kernel for a specific distribution and architecture This method uses an RPM or DEB file. It has though a lot of disadvantages ( the kernel is compiled for a generic architecture so it's not optimised for our computer. This brings performance losses. The facilities a compiled kernel offers are generic, which means we will only have the facilities a general user will us . ...

** Basic Computer Terms You Should Know Before Buying A PC ** Have you decided to get rid of that old paperweight and buy yourself a new computer? Good for you but before you go running out to buy the latest and greatest machine, there are some basic computer terms you should know. When you are looking to buy a computer you will hear basic computer terms like the following: ~The Processor This is the brain of your computer. It can also be referred to as the CPU. Processors come in many different varieties. Processor speed is measured in gigahertz or GHZ. The larger the number of GHZ the faster the computer. ~The RAM The RAM or memory is what your computer uses to store information while you are using the computer. This can also be referred to as Random Access Memory. I personally would not buy a computer with less than 2 GB of RAM. ~Optical Drive The optical drive in your computer should be able to read and write CDs and DVDs. If you have not purchased a computer in a while some of the newer options might ...

Ubuntu Linux and Windows 8: Head-to-Head at Last Canonical may have ultimately changed its mind about "Avoid the pain of Windows 8" -- the slogan that accompanied the original launch of Ubuntu 12.10 "Quantal Quetzal" earlier this fall, but like so many deeply compelling notions, it seems to have staying power here in the Linux blogosphere. That indeed is why more than a few Linux fans have viewed Windows 8 with jubilation rather than dread.

Dell ships lightweight XPS 13 laptop with Ubuntu Linux
My mom turned 81 today (JFK assassination date). One year now running Ubuntu Linux on a wireless HP laptop I only got a couple of support calls - once when a flash player upgrade was required to watch Coronation Street. She clicked through the process and it upgraded and she watched the show. She called me out of sheer amazement that it worked. Another time I got a call - Software Update is taking a long time, it's been going all day. We wait it out and it finishes the next day, it was the upgrade from 10.x to the current 12.04 - so Mom is migrated from Gnome 3 to the current Unity Desktop. I don't know it at all - so I visited and we went through a bit of a discovery process and now she's about 3 months into Unity. She recently submitted edits to a book - the author is running Word/Windows. Mom uses Libre Office and her edits integrated just fine. Modern Linux distros are great for seniors

GEEK ALERT: I'm not upgrading to Windows 8. I *am* upgrading to Ubuntu Linux (another operating system). The price is right (free) it works great but it's not for the fainthearted. Works on PC or Mac, by the way. Even older less sophisticated machines. If you have your geek on you really should give it a look.

Logged onto my Silicon Valley linux servers for the first day today. Hew! That's one small step for man.. The client I'm using is apparently command line interface (CLI). Yak! So my next challenge is to work-out how to GUI into the *** thing. I'm getting all kinds of help from the Hewllett Packard US team, which owns the servers in the first place. I'm also tapping in Ubuntu resources. Incidentally, my servers run Mark Shuttleworth's Ubuntu Linux. So get this: While researching on how Ubuntu works, via the Ubuntu website, I found out that they have a new component named Juju. I have no idea what it does, but it's the thing that I wanna download and learn before anything else. So, here's to spending tonight with Juju.

For the primary operating system on my computer I use Ubuntu linux. My computer is ancient, and can barely run a 3D interface. I use various 3D screensavers, and one of them is a molecular visualiser whichi expos various molecules in rotating 3 dimensional form. I love how the screensaver can very quickly and with sharp animation display things like LSD, VX Gas, Atropine, Water, Nicotine, and Cocaine. However, when it gets to DNA of a human, it kinda gets overwhelmed. So many base pairs and such, the graphics card becomes bogged down. Newer cards have enough memory to give a smooth animation but its sort of a compliment towards are on construction that not to long ago it was quite hard to just visually render our DNA let alone sequence it. Complex little critters we are...no?

To anyone who is running the binary Nvidia driver and believes it is slower do the following - this gives me a 50% boost in fps in all games/openGL apps. At a guess anyone who finds this slow I think you'll find its related to changes in the Nvidia driver - not Ubuntu well as enabling 'unredirect fullscreen windows' you should also disable 'sync to vblank' (openGL settings) with nvidia-settings That improves all openGL performance - I am talking about multiple different computers with different nvidia cards.. Ubuntu 12.10 is faster and snappier after doing this than any other release These 2 options needs to be the default or people are going to say Steam on Linux ***

Another reason why i'm switching to linux instead of windows 8.
so I decided a rainy day would be a good time to play around with operating systems and give the latest Ubuntu Linux a shot...I have to say I'm impressed. Unity is really polished and coming along very nicely. However, Netflix seems to not like Linux. I will be playing around with that for a while, if I can't get it to work I will be going back to windows
Linux better for games than Windows 8.
Will 2013 finally be the year of the Linux desktop? Betteridge's Law of Headlines gives 'no' as the answer, but access to modern video games has been one of the biggest reason people stick with windows.
This could be the big break that Ubuntu (and Linux) needs to finally be truly relevant.

Windows 8 looks like a lousy toy. We are supposed to move, dance, and jiggle to run it, and throw away the mouse? Forget it. I will not upgrade, and if needed, will switch to Ubuntu/Linux or perhaps Apple.
Valve has posted a Linux Beta survey which they will use to select the 1000 users who will firstly test Steam for Linux.
One of the (many) reasons why you may want to go for a $199 16GB Nexus 7 over the $329 16GB iPad mini is the former’s ability to be radically customized in ways Apple devices just can’t be.

I promised myself that when Windows 8 came out, I'd load Ubuntu Linux on my computers. I'll try a dual-boot system first before I decide to ditch Windows entirely. I'm open to any suggestions and/or tips.
Valve Corporation, based in Bellevue, Washington, makes computer games such as Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source.
DILEMMA: I've been running Windows 8 on both my computers for a few months, and I'm very happy with it. But I've also been testing Ubuntu Linux on my laptop, and I really like it also. Each option has only 1 con, Windows 8 cost money, I can get it for $40 (legally), but Ubuntu, has no Photoshop (but plenty of alternatives), and won't play Netflix video (which I don't watch on the computer anyway). Decisions, decisions. :/
Alright. So, I'm doing a triple boot. I have 4 partitions set up on my 640 GB Drive. In order: Windows 8 (125 GB) Windows 7 (125 GB) Ubuntu Linux (90 GB) Documents (300 GB) The 8 and 7 OSs will use the folders on the Documents partition for Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc. so everything is the same, all the time.

I'm still angry from yesterday. I had an elderly (75+) gentlemen come in with his relatively new Toshiba laptop. He had one of the local mobile techs working on it. It came in with windows 7 32bit running in notification mode, status of “non-genuine copy”. Stupid tech, it had 4 gigs of ram. 32Bit Windows can only use 3 gigs. Should have been 64bit. He asked if we knew of ubuntu (linux), because he had been watching it's development for a long time. He said he'd like to try it sometime. Then he said he wanted windows xp on it. I told him if I can find the drivers for xp (new laptops usually do not have xp drivers) I can do both ubuntu or xp as a dual boot install. So I determine that I can get the xp drivers and I prepare the job as dual-boot. I go to install xp and the laptop shows it only has a 60gb hard drive. *** is going on here?? The laptop is supposed to have a 320gb hard drive not 60gb!!! Somehow this beautiful laptop has had it's hard drive replaced with one that is 1/5th the si ...
Last Christmas I purchased a custom built media center computer to use with my hd TV. About 4 months ago the Windows 7 home media center edition began giving me error messages, saying that my trial period had expired and that I needed to purchase a key from Microsoft. I was not aware that the builder of this Windows 7 media center computer had installed a trial edition of Windows 7. I was not going to pay $200 or so for a key to keep those error messages from coming up every time I boot the computer. So today, I loaded the latest stable build of Ubuntu Linux. And it works GREAT!! I will add the various pieces of software in order to use the fancy media components, however, the computer screams. Thank you Ubuntu.

Ok, So here's my short review of Ubuntu Linux 12.04.1 LTS. It took just under 20 minutes total to install the newest release of Ubuntu. That's including the time it took to install the DVD player codecs which are not packed in the distro because they aren't open-source. But once it was all slapped together, I was left with a robust, feature-packed OS. It's still using the "Unity" desktop environment which really feels homey and familiar, especially if you frequently use MS Windows. It came pre-packed with the entire Libreoffice suite of MS office compatible utilities, the firefox web browser and more built-in apps than you can shake the proverbial stick at. I test-streamed some online TV and movie sites and of course youtube, for lag and clipping and even the 8 year-old PC I chose for the install performed quite well driven by Ubuntu for the purpose. DVD playback was gorgeous and seamless. Noticeably absent still, is any support for Netflix. Which is a bummer. Not a dealbreaker... But still a bum ...

Canonical adds a 'kill switch' for Ubuntu's Amazon search Katherine Noyes27, 2012 11:26 AM print The new integration of Amazon search results in Ubuntu Linux 12.10 has stirred up quite a hornet's nest of controversy over the past week or so among observers unimpressed by Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth's calm assurances that users' privacy would be maintained. According to two separate investigations over the past few days, in fact, Shuttleworth's explanation was not entirely correct, and users' information might be more exposed to Amazon servers than they might realize. Ubuntu community manager Jono Bacon followed up on Tuesday with news that searches will be encrypted, but today he also announced that Canonical is working on a kill switch for the Amazon search results feature. Revenue for Canonical For those who missed the original story, Ubuntu Linux 12.10 “Quantal Quetzal”--a second beta version of which is due today--now integrates Amazon results into searches conducted through the Unity desk ...
