comment Why is canonical choosing QT over GTK for Unity's next generation?
@VassilisGr Qt has been GPL-compatible for some time now (which makes it as free as other GPL things). However, for Qt to take a code contribution from the community, that contribution must be granted under a dual-license allowing whatever company that owns Qt today to sell a non-GPL license to the code if somebody pays them. Which in the Stallman definition of "Free as in Freedom Software" is not a problem (as long as we only consider taking software from the people who didn't pay and thus are using GPL...) Ubuntu wouldn't be paying, and thus be GPL, which Linux is anyway...so fine.

comment Why is my perfomance too bad in Virtual Box?
FWIW: I tried this and it had no effect on the graphics speed. (Ubuntu in VirtualBox 4.3.8). The extra CPU core suggested by @9ler helped a little bit, however...enough to be sort of tolerable?

comment How to fix virtualbox's copy and paste to host-machine?
+1 as I too had this happen right after taking a snapshot of an Ubuntu 12 installation. These two lines did the trick for me!

comment How to activate User after changing UID with usermod?
+1 Worked for me! (Although I also got a user showing up named "vboxadd", where if you're running the VirtualBox guest additions it adds such a user at ID 999 by default. Of course you can just move that out of the way, too...)
