comment Can I legally build and sell desktops with Ubuntu pre-installed?
iusmentis.com/trademarks/crashcourse/limitations says "Also, trademark rights are exhausted when a trademarked product lawfully enters the market. The trademark holder then normally can no longer act against resale of the trademarked product.". OP should probably ask a real lawyer, though, particularly if he has any intention of doing this without getting permission.

Does the branding within the OS actually count as "using" the trademark if it's not mentioned in any of your marketing materials?

comment Low disk space: home/user folder occupies 94GB
@tedtoy It seems absurd that a simple log file could grow that large. You should run fsck just in case this is an indication of something wrong with the filesystem structure.

Instead of baobab you may want to look at the tool "gdmap" - it shows space in a more visual way [you'll get a big rectangle for your big file]

comment What are the FOSS solutions for partition merging?
"Partition merging"? Like, making one partition with all the files on it from two partitions that each have their own files? I don't think there is a way to do this.
