comment Installing ubuntu on laptop via second computer
Yeah, that's what I had planned, but it's an old IDE/PATA disc, and I have only SATA laptops to 'spare' sadly. leaving my only connection option the external USB-connector for the moment.

that's a real good option and I think I'll do that! But that still needs me to install grub on the thing :)

comment Why is the default swappiness 60? What would be the effect if I lower the swappiness value for my desktop PC?
(by the way, the best thing to do is keep stuff like this default, untill you have a reason to change them. If we are talking about a desktop situation that is working fine, your default is probably fine :) )

(and at your specs: the most important thing if you are talking the memory you have and you, but no specific need to add it here: we could talk for days about all sorts of specifics, the best thing to do is to read the highest answer on that unix link you gave, and continue on with testing how it works in your environment.)'

Impossible to say. Depends on a lot of things, as also stated in that answer -> some databases might do their own caching, but some might not. It depends on the programs and on your hardware. There is a default and the best thing you can do is test how your system performs under what situation. As said, I have added enough mem to my systems, and I know what they require, so I can have swappiness at near 0. But on healthy systems some swapping can be a good thing. there is no easy 'god for all' setup advice here, read the best-upvoted answer. Also: it says "may be", not "is" in that 2nd answer

comment Is sublime legal to use?
Your argument is that it conforms to the shareware definition, so therefore you call it freeware? Freeware is not Shareware

comment How can I add more disk space to /boot for update
there's probably some leftovers from earlier upgrades in /boot, images and the likes. Some things you can do: use df -h to check harddisk space. You say you have plenty, but the partition /boot still can be full. Then, check out what is actually in /boot, the message is quite clear the problem is there. Maybe we van find something you can remove there? like old initrd stuffs?
