comment WIn7 & Ubuntu fail, replaced RAM, now error no. 5 while installing ubuntu, XP install fails & win 7 BSODs
I don't know the specific error description, but based on my personal experience I think your hard drive is physically failing, and no amount of formatting/repartitioning is going to fix it

comment Location-independent Media Player
There is a way to modify what is on the live cd before you create it. Also, some distributions come with a media player already installed, and some even with the non-free codecs installed as well. Finally, a .deb file is an archive with some other data - why not download the .deb files you need and install when needed... it's just as easy as unzipping/untarring a file.

comment Slow MicroSD card
I have a 16GB class 10, and I only came close (around 9.5 or so) when copying a large, 6GB movie file to a card with barely 500 MB used. If I copy over 500 or so mp3s for example, I see about what you have stated.

comment Slow MicroSD card
You even said it's a max... You're not likely to see the max for very long if it all. You'll never see it when there are multiple files being transferred. You might come close if it is one big file and the card is fairly empty (allowing the one large file to fit onto contiguous space)

Home also needs to be lowercase, and you can use html escapes to get the < and > symbols to appear (I edited to demonstrate)

comment Compatibility problems in Ubuntu
As far as printers, most HP printers work fine - HP has software specifically for linux, allowing printing/scanning through USB or the network that works fantastic. I don't know about other brands, but another option is to use Google cloud print - if the printer can be reached through network, you can print to it without drivers/software.

comment How to access an Ubuntu server with an RDP like-program
Haven't tried it myself, but looks like it all should work fine. It's merely editing a config file and using the vnc commands.

You can use VNC to connect multiple users simultaneously, each with their own screen and session. This can load up a server fast however (why many servers don't even have a GUI installed). See golinuxhub.com/2013/02/…
