comment Is programming on ARM a good choice?
@lhk They'll never be quite as thin, but that's because they've got a keyboard. I can't stand typing on a screen. I'm typing on an Acer Aspire 1825PTz

Use a laptop that converts to a tablet. They're normally quite portable and run Ubuntu with only a bit of hacking :P

comment Ubuntu not booting after removing linux partition
I should probably mention that I can boot into my main Ubuntu - though only through the Ubuntu I installed from my livedisk 30 mins ago. That's not what I want, as it takes up disk space, and time when booting up (it means I have to watch the screen util GRUB is up then use the arrow keys to select the main Ubuntu).

comment Ubuntu not booting after removing linux partition
The partition I formatted had GRUB installed, and it was Android-x86. I think my GRUB is installed to the MBR, because as mentioned there doesn't seem to be a /boot/grub/stage1 inside my main Ubuntu partition. So, effectively, there was only GRUB on that partition. My Ubuntu is, thankfully safe.

Woops - I got the script working in the new kernel :). At least this question will be a resource for others trying to find this out.

Thanks - I thought I had tried that but obviously something stopped the installation. Works now.

comment Is there a way to share resources of a machine by running a program on one machine, but display it on another?
Just tried it. Ran Spotify from my desktop, displayed it on my laptop, and controlled the sound that came through my big speakers remotely! All that comes next is the final bit of what I said - to make the computer automatically start a program on a second machine if the resources are running low.

comment Are there plans to remove the mouse cursor in uTouch?
Not as far as I know - It doesn't seem to be that wanted. I currently use unity on my tablet, and, due to the "desktop-ness" of the OS I would rather have a cursor showing.

comment Get Window size in shell
Understandably, yes. But there are workarounds! Using wmctrl, a package from the repo, you can move, resize, minimize and even change workspace!

comment Make long click act like a right click?
Thanks. But in Win7, if I press and hold then drag, it allows me to drag with the right button down... is this possible in GNOME?
