comment Google Chrome Command-Line Notice
I fail to see a notice that would be in context of dash-based launch here, do you mean when you launch from the command line

comment Recent Java 8 update and now +PrintAssembly crashes on 14.10
For the record, Java 8 breaks things, unless you need Java 8 you may want Java 7.

comment How to install ATLAS
Clock rate probably varies based on the throttling done. As the installer mentions, you have CPU thottling enabled which makes clocking unreliable. Consider reading ATLAS/INSTALL.txt like the error message says.

comment SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol when trying to access HTTPS URL
Somewhere along the line, you're trying to negotiate in SSLv2/SSLv3, based on those errors. In most cases, SSLv3 is now dead and you should be instead using TLSv1/TLSv1.1/TLSv1.2. This is because SSLv2 is now LONG dead, and SSLv3 is dead recently due to the POODLE vulnerability. Provide us a copy of the Apache2 site configurations.

comment “Intel(R) Graphics Installer for Linux” for Ubuntu 14.10
I'm pretty certain that unless your network drivers are proprietary you don't need to update those as frequently. As for your graphics drivers, you could try to use the "Graphics Installer for Linux" for 14.04, but I believe the reason they support 14.04 and not 14.10 is because 14.10 has a much shorter lifespan - it is only supported for a very short period of time, as this diagram from the Ubuntu LTS Wiki shows and since 14.10 EOLs in July, that's probably another reason.

comment “Intel(R) Graphics Installer for Linux” for Ubuntu 14.10
My question is why do you need to update your Drivers? If everything is working, why do you need to update? The problem with updating is that you could very easily break things if you aren't careful. (In theory, software supporting 14.04 supports 14.10, but for the reasons above, I question why you need to update in the first place)

comment Commercial Edition and Free Edition
@SatyanarayanaDhaveji Security is not just on the OS itself. Ubuntu has regular security updates for both Server and Desktop variants, and so long as you have regular maintenance periods where you update software and such to address the updates, you're fine. But security is not just part of the OS - it's a process of only exposing services that need to be exposed, actively and effectively defining policy for services being exposed, setting up DMZs for Internet Facing things, etc. "Secure" comes from the policy and management, not just the OS.

comment Why latest version of packages in Synaptic is different from developers website?
This is already answered in the duplicate question. This gives the general answer but doesn't necessarily detail the why.

comment Why latest version of packages in Synaptic is different from developers website?
Also consider you are asking two questions - you should split them. To answer the second one: you can only update to the latest versions if you compile the software yourself or find a PPA or a repository that has the newer versions (short of upgrading to the latest release of Ubuntu or the latest Dev release which I do NOT recommend).

put the complete output into your question as an edit, NOT as a comment.

comment Can't expand Ubuntu VM's hard drive space
Look at sudo fdisk -l and see what the actual partition scheme is and whether you have any free space at all.

Followup: No currently EOL releases have any open bugs at this time.

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
@Seth that's probably the case, but as I said two comments ago, the parent wiki pages for Importance and Statuses is a good bet for what statuses to set.

@Tim I do not know - that may be a different question you would post.

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
@labyrinth ONLY look at EOL releases that have Open Bugs (see my comment on my answer). There are no bugs that are Open that are against Hardy. (Invalid, Won't Fix, Fix Released, Expired are all considered "closed" and should NOT be touched.) Only look at release series' targeted bugs which have "Open" statuses (New, Incomplete, Triaged, Fix Committed).

comment Can I pause YouTube in Chrome from the command line?
@Tim it'd still be a Chrome thing - if you want to control it in Chrome then Chrome and the Flash plugin would need to have an API that listens locally, and running a youtube and chrome window shows no kind of API starting up. You'd probably need an offline YouTube client with an API to do that, but it probably won't have Chrome intergration...

comment Can I pause YouTube in Chrome from the command line?
This would require some kind of API call to the HTML5 or Flash video player through Chrome - I don't think there's any kind of setup that exists that can do that.

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
@labyrinth there's no open Hardy bugs. Your triaging Hardy bugs is irrelevant then at this point - move your triage focus to a release that recently went EOL or is EOL and have open bugs. (The URL pattern is https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/CODENAME/ to find open bugs, where CODENAME is the release codename, such as hardy or lucid)

comment How should I deal with bugs that are for unsupported versions of Ubuntu?
@drkokandy I believe this is already listed in the triage guide, if not then we can certainly add it, but I leave the documenting to others - typically, you should refer to Bug Importance and Bug Status documentation instead (related questions: Importance and Status; read their parent wiki pages as well!!!) since that's usually updated more often.
