I've been teaching CS for more than twenty years in Italy... mostly C, C++, Java, PHP, bash and general topics. Recently I "met" Ruby and Rails and I'm trying to learn it from the ground up.

I started using Linux back in 1996, and from about 1998 it' my main OS. I've been using Redhat, Suse, Debian before switching to Ubuntu in 2007.

I speak Italian, English, German, French, Japanese in this order of expertise.

comment Recommendations for restoring accounts after replacing a disk drive?
Well, if the HD itself has damaged sectors, you might end ub with corrupted FILES, but the filesystem as a whole should be OK.

comment How do I remove Ubuntu to install Windows?
We need some more info, such as: a) did you WIPE your previous Windows8 installation? If so the only way is to reinstall everything from the CD, but you have to put the CD in the reader, THEN reboot (sometime you have to press F8) b) if not it might be able (but somewhat complicated) to erase ubuntu and reset everything. Regards, Marcello
