comment Ubuntu 14.04 Nvidia propriatery Driver Install
@Tasos Are you sure not having ability to turn off for now is reason to return it - often things like this will get sorted next version or too. Also, you might consider the preinstalled setups such as this one: dell.com/us/business/p/xps-13-linux/pd

comment Why do most GNOME developers prefer Python over Java for GTK+ programming?
Java (for OpenOffice) is standard in Ubuntu, however there have been more bugs in it than other frameworks (Swing applications with goofy fonts/graphical glitches, for example.)

Why are you booting livecd, not internal drive?

Ironically, you may not be completely safe if you have an older livecd that doesn't have the latest updates. (Firefox or others could be older, unsecure versions).

That's what I guessed, but... what's your source for this?

So Dell doesn't write a driver for this, not even for the XPS 13 Ubuntu edition?

Unfortunately I don't remember any BIOS setting for this, and that link is for Lenovo battery limit system.

comment How to launch a newly installed program
@Jorge It is simple, when you install an app from Software center, the icon jumps to the left applications panel, shows a progress bar, and when it's installed you can click it.

comment When will Firefox have pixel-perfect scrolling in Ubuntu?
I thought Mir was going to replace it sometime after 14.04? BTW I found this bug for GTK3 upgrading Firefox, IIRC all the GTK3 applications have good non-jumpy scrolling. So voting for this bug might be the best way to support smooth-scrolling Firefox: bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=627699
