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.

Ubuntu doesn't really help speed up your games... just an FYI. Also, if this answer helped, and you don't need any answers anymore, please mark this answer as accepted.

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.

comment Notepad++ - cannot launch Firefox
@user288901 OK. That's fine, you can do that. (As an FYI, you should probably close this question if it answers what you're asking, and you can do that by selecting this answer as the answer that helped, if it is indeed the answer that helped.)

comment Notepad++ - cannot launch Firefox
If I may ask, why do you want Notepad++? gedit which comes with Ubuntu is a native program in Ubuntu that does pretty much everything that Notepad++ does.

comment How to split currently used partition on Ubuntu server?
Is this a server install (command-line), or a desktop install (graphical interface)?

comment How to split currently used partition on Ubuntu server?
For those of us who don't audit all the edits, it looks to others like no changes were made. I added a (clearly visible!) notice that gparted can't safely resize active partitions, and that this will need to be done from a LiveCD. Note that the server tag on this question makes me think this still doesn't answer the question, gparted requires a GUI.

comment How to split currently used partition on Ubuntu server?
gparted can't safely resize an actively mounted partition I don't think, and it looks like their /usr is mounted there. We'll need to see what their actual partition table layout is once they post a screenshot of gparted as it shows on their screen.

comment How to open the ports on firewall in Ubuntu?
We need more information. What device are you trying to access, where does it reside, and where does the device you're using ot try and access the system that is running Uubntu reside in relation to the Ubuntu system?

comment No confirmation prompts when deleting a file or a directory
Also note that 12.10 is End of Life, and you should probably upgrade to something that still receives updates and security fixes.

Beware the security risk here - 1.5 is ancient and has a TON of vulnerabilities that can be exploited...

comment Ubuntu 14.04 game problems
@Philebbs Spelling and grammar checking usually helps. Having said this, what you're describing is kinda vague and not really easy to be able to track down what exactly's going on. These games don't keep any kind of startup logs do they?

comment I need advice on partition sizing/placement, please
To clarify, you want to shrink sda5 (your linux partition), expand your swap, and create another partition for everything else you might want to store?

comment Postfix not sending mail, returning “Network is Unreachable”
Network is unreachable is the key error in Postfix. Something's up with your networking, in that it can't reach the internet, or resolve the connection to that IP (it's possible they've blacklisted your IP from sending to them, but it's ultimately a networking issue). Just a pointer in what direction you need to look for the problem is all. (It doesn't look like a PHP problem since the error is a postfix "can't reach network" error)
