I route the packets that make the Internet sing.

I have been a casual Linux user since Slackware 3.0 (Hello Walnut Creek!) and an Ubuntu user since around version 6.06 or 6.10.

My primary professional skill set has been focused on the design, implementation, operation, and daily management of enterprise networks.

This includes the configuration and operation of network hardware as well as the care and feeding involved in the network monitoring systems supporting them. The hardware includes routers, switches, firewalls, wan-optimizers, and occasionally load balancers (mostly Cisco, Riverbed, and f5 systems).

@pts I would recommend submitting a new question referencing this specific question as I haven't looked into any 32 vs 64 bit issues. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

comment Why are old distributions not partially supported indeffinetely if this is very inexpensive?
Do you have a specific problem to solve? 10.04 is End of Life(EOL) and we generally don't provide support for that.

comment Running Rosetta Stone in Wine
Glad to hear that you resolved that. Please add your comment as an answer and accept it, when you get a chance as I have noticed a couple of other Rosetta Stone questions that don't have good answers and this question might be able to be used as a future reference. Additionally, you could possibly add this report to the WINE database to help others in the community. That's how this open source stuff works. ;-) Sorry about your initial frustration, but glad to see you reporting back on your solution. Good job!

comment Running Rosetta Stone in Wine
What version of Rosetta Stone are you trying to use? If you look at The Wine Application Database for Rosetta Stone it might give you some pointers as you haven't provided enough details on what you have already done. Additionally, you could edit your question and give us more information on what you have tried and what error messages that you have received. That would go a long way in helping us to help you. Right now, your question has a good deal of rhetoric and is lacking in technical detail. Hope the link helps.

comment What does the message “Publishing has been disabled for this archive” mean for a PPA on Launchpad?
That is what it seems like, to me as well. Does this also mean that one cannot install the PPA in question? Or, can you also run a sudo add-apt-repository against the PPA even though the warning exists?

comment cannot find import; DLL may be missing, corrupt, or wrong version. Wine kernel32.dll error?
What is the specific software that you are trying to install? Have you looked at the Wine application database to see if there are suggested workarounds or if your particular software has a garbage rating?

Nice Answer. Note that this PPA doesn't have 1.0 backported just yet. IIRC, 1.0 is available in the Saucy repositories, however.

comment Installing C compiler, JDK etc. in Ubuntu
Asking how to install "C Compiler, JDK, etc" is rather broad. It would be preferable for you to specify exactly what you are trying to do and ask one question at a time.
