Just installed Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit from disks included with Ubuntu magazine alongside Windows 7 and dual boot works perfectly.

I'm on an Alienware Aurora R3 system, 8 GB RAM, Two HDD of 1TB.

I can run Libre Office, Firefox, etc. However Thunderbird crashes upon startup. The text screen goes by quickly, but I do see a red warning that jetty failed to startup. How do I resolve it?

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! What is specifically the error that you get? Could you add a screen-shoot? You can upload it in Imgur and link it into your question. – Lucio Mar 11 '13 at 23:59

Use synaptic to check if jetty is installed. If not, sudo apt-get install jetty.
