    Have any of you guys have any experience with this? My windows machine won't boot. I have a Windows 7 product key, but no disc. I am on a computer running Ubuntu 14.04, I have a Windows 7 ISO and I have a 16 gb thumbdrive. I have tried using Unetbootin (which just gets stuck at 52%), and...

    Hey guys, I have an old PowerEdge 2850 server I've been messing around with for some time, but I have yet to decide what distro I like best. I just loaded Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS on it, and I'm wondering if anyone here uses it, likes it, hates it, etc.. I'm trying to get away from GUIs :flex:.

    I thought some of you might find this interesting. There's probably someone here that knows more about this stuff than I do and I thought this might be fun to talk about. Ubuntu supports bit perfect playback. That means that the audio is decoded by your DA converter in it's unaltered state. So...

    So, after much fighting, i remembered how to get my goddamned network card running on the command line! My only issue now is that it doesnt run on boot. The driver probes automatically, etc etc. To get it to run all i have to do is either restart networking (etc/init.d yadda yadda, which is...

    Seriously? Fucker wont even install right over my 10.10 install, right? Once i get the cockgobbler running, it gives me an interface that looks like this: Its like my desktop is a giant fucking smartphone. Im sure there's some way to uninstall this fucking cumdumpster of an interface and go...

    I feel like i could install Windows ME and XP (before SP1) and all related updates with fewer interactions. Holy shit. Seriously, this is more involved than openSuSe server, and openSuSe makes everything more complicated than finding Chris' wang. In other news, once it is installed...

    Alright, so here's the deal -- I am currently running Ubuntu and, am for the most part happy. I have vista as a dual boot (Since i had the disc that came wiht my computer, it was the most readily available version of windows at the time). However, Vista is doing a bunch of bullshit and I want...

    I don't understand why you're making me install a dozen packages, all of which have various public keys that I need to get before installing, when all I want to do is uninstall the fucking print service. :mad:

    I have a fresh install of 10.10, and I have the network proxy configured system-wide. Everything can get to the web just peachy, but Update Manager can't download any updates - I get the usual 'failed to fetch blah blah' error that apps throw when they don't have a proxy. I can't, however, seem...

    I loved it so much on the netbook I had to try it on the desktop. In terms of user friendliness linux has come so fucking far. I'm falling in love with it all over again :) Fortunately, most of the software I use is cross-platform. :D I'm still not sure if I would give up OS X because I love...

    Ok so I bought a computer not to long ago and the HDD took a dump on me the other day it was running windows and I know that there is no way to get my win7 install off of the drive. I dont have the extra cash to go out and get a new HDD right now but I had remembered hearing that I could run a...
