comment Ubuntu or Windows for home file server?
Asking if windows is a good OS for something on a site dedicated to Ubuntu is never a good idea. What you want to do is possible with lots of OSes. The question more important ... are you willing to invest time in learning a new OS for this?

"+10 days" works too. So does "+2 hour". Of course you could also add a method here to make minutes from 2.5 hours ;) I never found a full list of words you can use...

That is because Pear OS seems dead too. I would suggest using another OS ;)

comment Can't Install or download anything in Pear OS 8
Yes it is. We only support official releases though. Since we basically are the support channel. Oh and you might be better off here: pearlinux.org

Pear OS is not an official Ubuntu release and is off topic on AskUbuntu. Please use unix.stackexchange.com for questions regarding Pear OS.

I assume you then also need to move all users to the other group?

You need 2 tabs in the 1st line. The middle text is touching the same distance as the next tab.

comment How to replace Linux Mint by Kubuntu?
It is always with a bit of risk. I normally delete the partition from Windows and install Ubuntu in the "unallocated" space. Easy to identify during installation. Plus you can choose the "manual" partitioning. Is a bit more safe for me.

comment How to replace Linux Mint by Kubuntu?
Now the main question you get in return... why do you assume it will be any different than when you installed Mint?

comment Ubuntu 14.10 ignoring Nvidia settings
"I can't seem to save the settings" did you start it up as "sudo" or as a user? The latter might silently fail to save.

That is not the actual error notice I would assume?

comment how to set up a connection without using ssh
You need to focus on fixing this: "and not able to install openssh after many times". If you are told to jump through A hoop why choose the one that has a bottomless pit behind it?
