comment “failed to create symbolic link” error when updating initramfs
Well, in my case, I boot and use Ubuntu off a USB drive, and whenever I do sudo apt-get dist-upgrade, and if it updates packages like linux kernels, I would see errors as such. That is even with the computer having a CDRom Drive

comment What can a Beowulf cluster help process?
I agree with @Fabby that your life will be easier with identical machines to work with. I do not know how old the school machines are, but your progress will be so much slower if these machines can only boot from floppy drives, and not from bootable CD-Rom.

Sometimes, I wonder if remote sharing is actually an after-thought in ubuntu-land. It really should just work right out of the box.

comment Ubuntu slows down over time?
If it is overheating, CPU may simple shut itself down, and cause your system to shut off. I have the same slow down issue on 14.04, and the current workaround is really to reboot.

comment Is it possible to disable the Super+<Number> shortcuts that switch to apps in 12.04?
In 14.04, the setting is now called Key to show the Dash, Launcher, and Help Overlay So if you disable the Super+<number>, you also disable the shortcut to the Dash. It is a trade-off though
