comment Is it possible to install ubuntu FROM a smartphone?
how about this... use dd to backup your sd card,then-using the computer you are posting from, create a bootable 'usb' on the sd, then install. After the install, dd back to the sd card. It will either work, or not, but your data is still backed up after dd.

comment Windows Installer - Does it wipe drive
How is the backup drive setup? Your question is also rather ambiguous.. If you happen to have a LVM currently, you will want to look into the alternate install. Need more info

At the risk of going off topic- try AutoCADws for google chrome. I've used it only a couple times, but did it's job.

comment Turn off display using shutdown menu
This isn't an answer, but seeing your question made me curious... I use Xubuntu,hence xfce and i found out that the menu for shutting down,rebooting is not really a menu per-se but a program called xfce4-session. I'm writing a little test app right now using bash and zenity to see what I can add.

comment how to increase speed of usb install
Depends on how much memory (RAM) you have and how much you swap, writes on flash drives are slow. HD read/write are pretty much the same. All things are not equal here (read/write speed, access times...etc)
