Ubuntu Linux & Windows 7 Dual Boot or just use Windows in a Virtual Machine?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2013
I'm looking at making the switch from a laptop with Windows 7 to one with Ubuntu Linux (my HP Pavilion is dying a slow but unrepairable hardware death) but I have a couple programs I'm probably going to have to run with Windows. A few games I'd like to keep but mostly my Scrivener novel writing program that only has a glitchy beta version for Linux, plus I already own the Windows version and can put it on a second machine. Disclaimer: I've never actually used Linux. At all. But because I frequently have to live off public WiFi due to travel, I'd rather have something more secure, and nothing makes a writer swear more than having to do a hard restart in the middle of a chain of thought because of a freeze.
I'm looking at a System 76 Pangolin Performance laptop which comes with Ubuntu installed. I can get a legit copy of Windows 7 relatively inexpensively. So my questions are: 1) Do I need dual boot? Or will most things run ok in a virtual machine? Since my writing program integrates
Going 100% Linux (Ubuntu) from Windows 7
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 24, 2013
Hello everyone. I enjoy the linux community and the linux OS. However, I have been a Windows user for as long as I have been computing. My question today is: "If I decided to go full Linux (Ubuntu) from an along side installation with (Windows 7), would I gain the disk space of my computer or would the partition from the USB still be the only memory I have?
I decided that I wanted to run Linux on my computer but I understand the unfair recognition when it comes to vendors like Microsoft, Apple, and others. Nevertheless, I decided that I could run Linux along side Windows and have the best of both worlds. Now, I am curious about this disk space and partitioning. I want more disk space and I want to go full Linux. (I am comfortable with the CLI termal: Information Systems Major) What I don't know about this situation is if I go full Linux, will my disk space still be limited or will it be as if i was running Windows (no disrespect) and have way more diskspace to work w

I would like to install Mint or Ubuntu alongside windows
I have three drives , there are three Drives C,D,E. i tried to install LinuxMint using the live DVD in E drive problem is linux is not detecting the installed version of windows , it is showing all as single unallocated HD. so if i proceed with that i would loose all my data. I earlier tried in another system in which i successfully installed Mint OS in a separate drive. i also tried by converting the drive to ext4 file system still the linux installer couldn't detect the drive.
Any help would be more helpful....
[SOLVED] java and "app inventor" vs. Linux Mint12 (Ubuntu 11.10)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 10, 2012
Neither "java" nor "app inventor" are specific to any distro or even linux. Regardless, I cannot get "java" running in ways that satisfy the "app inventor" pages.
Can anyone help me sort this out?
I'm running Linux Mint-12 (Ubuntu 11.10) and have all of the various java packages installed. I'm trying to use the Chromium browser with MIT's "App Inventor" tools for building Android apps. I need something really trivial on my 'droid, and App Inventor seems a light weight approach to doing a prototype.
Thanks in advance,

How stable is Arch Linux?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 16, 2010
I installed Arch linux and I've been using it only for a few days, so I don't have much experience with it. I see that it is one of the most bleeding edge distros, with always the latest packages. I think that this can cause stability problems, so my question is does it really cause? So how often does it happen that after an upgrade something doesn't work?
I know that only one version of a package can be installed, so if something goes wrong, the user can't do anything else, but waiting for the developers to release a fixed version. How long does it take?
