How to fix file extension wrong definition ubuntu 10.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2013
I have a file with extension .hal which is seen as a CAD drawing file, i have draftsight installed, the .hal file it's actually a text file so i need to open it with gedit, but if i set to open the .hal file with gedit, then all my .dxf file cannot open to draftsight, but they'll try open with gedit.
I would like to remove ubuntu from thinking .hal files are CAD drawings, because they are not, .dxf files open with draftsight, .hal files with gedit.
I hope there is somewhere to set this extensions settings, please help!

Definition of Ubuntu, Lubuntu and so on
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 28, 2010
I'm thinking what the definition of these desktop environments is. It's a Lubuntu if it's installed from the Lubuntu image but what is it if an official installed Ubuntu changed his desktop environment afterwards to LXDE? Is it then an Ubuntu or a Lubuntu? I want just to know this to give the threads a more correct prefix.

Ubuntu 12.10 Cinnamon vs Mint 14 Cinnamon
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
I'm switching from a Mac to Linux and am still in doubt as to which flavour I'm going to be using.
Ubuntu seemed like the obvious choice but after trying out several distros (many of which Ubuntu based) I decided that Mint Cinnamon was going to be it.
Until I found out you can install the Cinnamon desktop on ubuntu. Which I tried.
Hmm. It looks equally nice as it does on Mint but still, I've got the impression it runs just that tiny bit better on Mint (i.e. more fluid - and I tend to ditch something at the first sign of even the slightest hint of 'jerkyness').
Ubuntu would seem like the logical step when coming from a Mac : it's the most popular distro out there and the Unity interface in some ways is very similar to OS X. But, I have to say, I 'dislike' Unity with a passion (not going to use the word 'hate', seems a bit too strong - it was OK I guess in 12.04, terribly slow in 12.10). Mint Cinnamon touched me right away (although I'm currently trying out OpenSuse 12.3 KDE and I must
Ubuntu vs Mint

Just when I was about to install Ubuntu, I had a "why not look at Mint" question thrown at me. The reasons, my friends said, is that the Mint desktop (Cinnamon) is more like Win 7 plus the fact that Ubuntu has "lost its way" like Microsoft did with its illegitimate child Windows 8, in trying to be both Desktop and Tablet Operating System. True or False?
1) I am a Desktop only user - for business, no gaming whatsoever
2) I never have used the Windows Start Button except to shut down the computer. I never start programs from the Start Menu. I Do Not Need a Start Button.
3) I prefer to organize my icons with a program called "Fences"; and would like my Taskbar on the bottom of the screen(s) and absolutely not on the side of the screen
4) I need to network with Win 7 workstations and a file server.
2) Which of the two is faster? Ubuntu or M

Let's compare the latest versions of the two. What are the differences? Real differences, not mint is green. Things related to 64 bit, flash, codecs and other technical distinctions.
