The names add assonance and recognizability to the otherwise dreary process of version determination; some people refuse to recite numbers that aren't prices, but they'll tell you for example whether spoiler mounts are on the hood.

Otherwise, the meaning is thin on the ground.

I have a single installation of Ubuntu 11.10. How do I remove it and install Windows 7? Have tried from the Windows boot disk but I dont know what my drive letter is as Ubuntu does not name it????


Hi,
You can use the windows disk to over-write the ubuntu installation. Just boot from the windows disk, and when it asks where to install, tell it to format the disk and create a partition from the unpartitioned space. Windows will format the disk and you should be good to go. Keep in mind, everything on the disk will be lost.

I got a computer that has ubuntu 11.04/linux and it has a user name and password set but I can't figure out how to reset it.


When Ubuntu boots, select Esc for the boot menu (Grub) and select recovery mode. Ubuntu will then boot w/o asking you for a password signed in as root. Type passwd USERNAME and it will reset your password. source:http://in.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110608030342AArlwua

How do I access windows applications on the same machine


Linux and Windows I'm sure you know are two totally separate platforms of Operating System's. Meaning their applications and programs are not cross compatible with one another.

However. Ubuntu has over 33000 free programs that are just like Windows programs. They can read and access pdf's. avi's, wmv's and all the other things that you might need.

Since the question isn't completely clarified here. I'm gonna say you can just download Ubuntu's versions of programs.

Or... Install what they call a Virtual Machine and "emulate" a Windows system, download the windows programs, and run it like a standard MS System.

I downloaded VLC for ubuntu but i couldn't install it


The reason for that could be because some of the dependencies have not been met.
You can try these methods:
First the easy one: Click on the link below:
http://ubuntu-tweak.com
Then click on the download now button. Actually this will download and install the ubuntu tweak program.
Once you have this installed, go to System tools and then to Ubuntu tweak from there.
Once ubuntu tweak opens, click on the application center. On the right hand side you will see a list of programs. Check whether VLC player is on the list. If yes. select it and click apply. Most chances are that it will install the VLC.
Else: Move on to the the Terminal.
Open a terminal.
Copy and paste the commands below:
sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/jaunty.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get update
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install non-free-codecs
-----------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2 libxine1-ffmpeg gxine mencoder
---------------------------------------------------------
sudo apt-get install vlc mplayer

------------------------------------------------------------
I have drawn some lines to separate the individual commands. Especially the first one is long and may confuse, where one command starts and end.
Hope this helps. Don't give up on ubuntu. If you are beginner, it may look difficult for a week or so. Then you will find it is way better than windows. Try Xine media player also. And K3b for burning disk.

HP Pavilion w. Vista, am trying to open Ubuntu for first time since install, but it wants a user name and password. Have tried all the combos from Windows, keep getting wrong password or name message. Also...


First of all, try this:
Username: root
Password: root

Second of all, you only specified that you had Vista. If you manually installed Ubuntu, then you must've specified a Username and Password during the setup.

If none work, then go ahead and format the Ubuntu partition, then re-install Ubuntu. This time, try to remember the Username and Password.

Jaunty jackalope 9.04 review


From my personal experience I would say do not do it. I have heard it to be successful from many people, however Ubuntu does not play well with Dell computers. Apparently the latest releases do not like Dell's sound cards or video cards. I have no sound and flash refuses to install on my machine.
Try at you own risk I say.

Jaunty Jackalope Alpha


That will be the new version of Linux. Based on your questions I would say that you should not use it. Alpha versions are still very much under development and should only be used by experienced users. Wait until it is under general release.

Ubuntu security


This issue has been resolved with software updates. As is typically the case with *nix systems, updates to correct vulnerabilities are quickly posted to the software repositories.

So long as you update your system when new updates are available, you should have no security issues to worry about!

Hope this helps,
