comment How do I increase the total size of my storage devices?
Besides this not about Ubuntu but about hardware... really? You really believe a 16Gb usb has actually a 128Gb flashdrive in it? You really think manufacturers would accept less profit since a 128Gb flash drive is far more expensive to make.

comment Can't put windows on a flash drive, even with dd, winusb and unetbootin
If you have problems with moderation please visit META ( meta.askubuntu.com ) and post a coherent well thought out argument. Editing the question and commenting it NOT the correct way. By the way: "How can i install my windows 7 iso to a flash drive" Windows 7?! Why should AskUbuntu care about W7? Seems OFF TOPIC to me.

comment Using Ubuntu 10.04, is developing sites in my home folder instead of /var/www a significant security risk?

comment What is the difference between ext3 & ext4 from a generic user's prespective
@jpmc26 because it was unstable and now it is stable (that is rather typical for filesystems: features to a filesystem tend to get added when the feature before that got proven to be stable)
