Battery Life Ubuntu Vs. Windows
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2009
I've always just accepted that my battery life is pretty crap on my laptop, but I booted windows the other (hasnt been done in about 3 months) and when I usually have about 35 minutes at 40% charge, I had an hour under windows. Does anybody know why this could be?
Google Chrome CR48 Ubuntu Battery Life

I am finding conflicting reports of Ubuntu's battery life feature on the CR48. Is anyone familiar with how much the battery can be maxed to on Ubuntu vs the Chrome OS 48?
Wubi and full installation
location: linux.com - date: December 11, 2011
Okay, right now I'm using Wubi to try out Ubuntu. I really do enjoy it, but I'm skeptical to completely leave behind windows. Can someone tell me what is the real difference between using Ubuntu through Wubi, and using it simply as the main OS?
Are there any FULL Ubuntu/Kubuntu 13.04 DVD Releases?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 30, 2013
A while back I was inquiring whether 12.10 would get a full DVD release. I'm needing to download Kubuntu 13.04 specifically, and I want to download a version with built in repositories and not the 900 or so MegaByte DVD ISO.
The Edubuntu Repo still lists these images, so I know they exist at least for that distro, the question is, do they exist for Kubuntu as well?

12.04 has your battery life improved?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2012
One thing I have seen touted in regards to 12.04 is improved power management.
Since Oneiric, I haven't seen any improvement at all and battery life is still much shorter than either Windows 7 or Kubuntu.
HTML 5 / TIZEN : Life, the Universe and Everything ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 19, 2012
According this article HTML 5 / TIZEN is going to be THE next 'hype' :
As HTML 5 starts to become the foundation of everything, itís us, the user who wins. Those of us that comprise the %1 of desktops users using Linux now have the same choice on our mobiles. Many of us use Android, but there will no longer be a reason to be bound to it. We can choose to use Android, Tizen, iOS, WebOS, or whatever we want. We will have the same level of access to productivity apps, games and entertainment, as anyone else.
HTML 5 will be the technology that completely eliminates the need for an Ďecosystemí. Itís an enabler of freedom.
Full server backup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 24, 2013
I need to back up a client server running Ubuntu Server 12.04 ( I think...) to an external drive. They had someone in the past set up a command for them that tars the entire drive to a backup file then they move that file to a backup drive. I'm asking for help on a few items:
Please review the backup steps they take now and tell me if they are sufficient to accomplish a bare metal restore assuming the server hard drive fails or we move it to another machine altogether. I'm trying to test that now, but at 100GB, the backup file takes some time to move around and attempt a restore. (more below)I'm going to attempt restoring this to a virtual machine in VirtualBox. That should work, right?What is the best long-term backup strategy for this. My priorities are minimal down-time, but a few hours is alright. My feeling is I should be able to get incremental backups set up using three or four external drives they'd cycle off-site weekly. A RAID1 mirror is on my list too. So, what's the best
Thinkpad X220 short battery life with Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 12, 2012
Apparently Ubuntu 12.04 was meant to support the laptops better and allow a longer better life.
On Win7 I get 7 hours battery life with my 6 cell battery. Same laptop on Ubuntu is around 2 hours. Thats too much of a difference.
I have tried PowerTOP and switched some entries to GOOD in order to save battery life, but without a big success.
Any idea what to do?
HORRIBLE 11.10 battery life fix anytime soon?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2011
I updated from 11.04 to 11.10 earlier this week, and though I'd heard reports of increased power usage on oneric, this is crazy.
I have a relatively new Lenovo x220 (core i7) with a 9-cell battery. With screen dimmed a bit and intermittent wifi use under Windows 7 I can easily get 8+ hours (and could push it to 12+ using Lenovo's power-usage tweaks). On Ubuntu 11.04 I still got a decently respectable 6+ hours. On Oneric, I'm getting around 4 hours with wifi turned off - that's a third of the battery life I can get on Windows. This is unacceptable.
What the heck is going on? I've heard this is somewhat kernel related, but even so, this seems insane to me. I've been on Ubuntu for six years and hate the prospect of having to turn back to Windows. I opted for this laptop specifically for the battery life, and the insane power consumption is making 11.10 practically useless for me. I'm tempted to revert all the way to 10.10 to see if I can at least get 7 hours with gnome2 and an
