Medyo naiilang ako sa behavior ngayon sa Unity sidebar. Lagi akong nakakapress ng isang button nyan if I try to reach the back button of my web browser. Nakakainis! Medyo nakakalito yung pang-adjust ng settings nito via Ubuntu Tweak.
Anyhow, I wanted to do a clean install of 12.04 on one of my friend's netbooks, an HP Mini 1000. Pero yung sa kanya 16GB SSD yung primary disk nya. Anyone have an idea paano magkaroon ng medyo minimal na installation nito?
I'm not really into using Ubuntu, but I tried one with Unity sidebar and it looks weird and difficult to navigate and some of the application there is not working.
The one consistent thing I've experienced with any Linux distro is the problem of screen resolution as the max I can get is either 1024x768 or lower. It is really frustrating since I have to run some commands in the terminal or have multiple edits in the xorg.conf file and I forgot the solution when I tried Linux Mint Maya.
Linux group files complaint against Microsoft to EU

MADRID - A Spanish association representing open-source software users has filed a complaint against Microsoft Corp to the European Commission, in a new challenge to the Windows developer following a hefty fine earlier this month.
The 8,000 member-strong Hispalinux, which represents users and developers of the Linux operating system in Spain, said Microsoft had made it difficult for users of computers sold with its Windows 8 platform to switch to Linux and other operating systems.
Lawyer and Hispalinux head Jose Maria Lancho said he delivered the complaint to the Madrid office of the European Commission at 0900 GMT on Tuesday.
Microsoft declined to comment and officials at the European Commission were not available for comment.
In its 14-page complaint, Hispalinux said Windows 8 contained an "obstruction mechanism" called UEFI Secure Boot that controls the start-up of the computer and means users must seek keys from Microsoft to install another operating system.
The group said it was "a de facto technological jail for computer booting systems ... making Microsoft's Windows platform less neutral than ever".
"This is absolutely anti-competitive," Lancho told Reuters. "It's really bad for the user and for the European software industry."
The European Commission has fined Microsoft, the global leader in PC operating systems, 2.2 billion euros ($2.83 billion)over the past decade, making it the world's biggest offender of European Union business rules.
The Commission found in 2004 that Microsoft had abused its market leader position by tying Windows Media Player to the Windows software package and relations have remained tense.
The company took a more conciliatory approach in recent years, settling another antitrust investigation in 2009 related to the choice of a browser in its Windows operating system.
It also lodged its own complaints to the Commission about the business activities of rival Google.
But on March 6, the Commission fined Microsoft 561 million euros for failing to offer users a choice of web browser. — Reuters
I was using Linux Mint LXDE on my workstations but I switched to Lubuntu because Linux Mint doesn't support LXDE anymore. I like LXDE desktop because it's light and simple. But I like Linux in general on my workstations becuase they're easier to maintain and immune to viruses. In fact, Yung mga USB drives at memories na infected ng viruses sa Windows eh nababasa sa Linux.
