comment What is the difference between upstream and downstream when referring to who to go to as a developer?
Likewise, if you were to report a bug to an upstream app (like Firefox) that was caused by something in Ubuntu, not Firefox, they would refer you to report the bug downstream.

comment Is possible to make symlinks that 'follow' the file?
msw is right, for some reason not using -s with ln scared me for a while, I never thought it was appropriate to do. In reality, it's not an issue unless you have crazy partitioning schemes and move files across them alot.

comment How to log out without having to confirm?
Just to play devil's advocate, being a list of actions "log out, switch user, restart, etc" it's not very hard to miss and accidentally select the wrong item, especially with a trackpad.

comment Wireless not working after installation
It should be noted that you need to plug into a wired connection when you do this. I had a similar problem ona Levovo S10 and Hardware Drivers couldn't find any drivers for it. Then I plugged it into the network, ran the hardware drivers wizard, and it found the relevant drivers and installed them no problem.
