comment Windows 7 doesn't boot after Ubuntu install
ow, sounds like your windows 7 may have some system volume info issues. You should partition vista and windows 7 drives within their computer manager. do you have your windows 7 install dvd? You might be able to do a repair.

comment Blank screen after Switch User or Resume
what is the output of lshw and lspci? need some information about the graphics hardware. the logs from when your system returns from this problem would also be helpful (if you know where they are, if you don't, then no need to stress over them. additionally from the fact that xp also had this problem, sounds like faulty hardware. have you had this system checked?

comment How do I listen to song samples on the iTunes website?
ohhhhhhhhh.... well in that case my suggestion to trouble shoot this one is to see if they can play in VLC. To test that, try flashgot in firefox (to download the preview) and then open it in VLC. If no sound comes out, then there is a REAL BIG PROBLEM.

comment What is the current status of the performance of nVidia vs ATI video cards?
certain ATI cards are not well supported either =)... The best bet is: if the card is > 1000HD series -> get the proprietary driver. If it's an nVidia and it's newer than 2yrs, same thing.

that still doesn't put most common users at risk, or require antivirus software. In fact those vulnerabilities are getting no where fast on linux.
