comment Easiest way to setup Ubuntu as a VPN server
@Jamie There's a ton of other documents and entries here on Ask Ubuntu on connecting to a VPN not to mention documentation inside Network Manager. This question only covers setting up the VPN, and the server side. NOT the connecting to it part.

comment Updating 32-bit 13.04 to 64-bit 14.04
The other issue is you're not on an LTS release. Assuming you don't switch architectures, you can upgrade to 13.10 and then to 14.04. BUt you will not be able to upgrade to 64-bit 14.04 from 32-bit 13.04, the architecture change would require a clean install. (Also, see the duplicate, which is the most relevant question you're asking.)

You can't switch architectures with an upgrade. You have to do a clean install for an architecture switch.

comment How to install Tomcat7 in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?
Unfortunately there's not enough details here. What exactly makes you think that Tomcat7 is broken from the repositories? What symptoms suggest this?

comment How to install g++ compiler?
The other alternative is to install build-essential, which also includes build libraries commonly used, rather than just g++, but if all they need is the g++ compiler, then your command is accurate.

While this technically answers the question, it may be better to add the key points to your answer, in case that link goes dead.

comment How to get nginx with spdy on Ubuntu without having to compile it?
@btobolaski as the one who maintains nginx in main and the NGINX team PPAs, I need to correct your post, as it is wrong as it currently stands. Spdy was only recently enabled in nginx-extras and nginx-full in Debian. As of 14.04, with the introduction of nginx-core as the nginx variant in Ubuntu Main in 14.04, it also builds spdy. The default nginx source code from upstream does not build spdy. In Debian, -full and -extras build spdy. In Ubuntu, -core, -full, and -extras build spdy. Nginx upstream does not and probably will not ever default-build spdy.

comment Installing Ubuntu Question
@New2Ubuntu You're welcome! Note your key might not work for Windows with the standard installer, too, so that's another reason why I'm suggesting you stick with a dual boot for now. Unless you know for certain you will never use Windows again, dual booting is a better idea

comment Installing Ubuntu Question
@New2Ubuntu Yes, but this is why dual boot environments exist, so both operating systems can exist on the same system, and you can choose which to use at boot time. In my case, I have to have such an environment, as some of my IT security courses I'm taking require Windows for the utilities, and the utilities don't work with Wine (which can run some Windows executables). But that's kinda why dual booting can be a good alternative - so you don't have to really get rid of either, and can switch between them when you want to use one or the other.
