If you message me on any of the following, and I don't reply, please don't assume I received it.

I'm Occasionally Asked For My Comments (but not in the way you think ;-) )

Please feel free to use my pro-forma comments, most of which are derived from the defaults or the ones shared here rather than being written from scratch by me (some are even identical):

  • Import/access them in plaintext or jsonp (last updated 2 July 2013).

I do not claim original authorship of them, but if any of them turn out to be wrong or not very good, that is possibly my fault. :-)

comment Will overheating of Dell Inspiron N5010 stop if I remove the graphics card
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.

comment Will I lose all my files from XP OS if I install Ubuntu?
If you want to keep Windows (and even sometimes using Windows), see How can I install Ubuntu without removing Windows?. You'd tell Ubuntu's installer to install alongside the current OS. If you want to get rid of your Windows system, then (assuming Windows is currently the only OS on the disk and you don't have any separate data partitions on the disk that you want to keep), you'd tell it to use the entire disk in which case your files in Windows will be destroyed (so, copy stuff off first). See also How do I install Ubuntu?.

comment Why DO the People who can help answer a question question the OS
Assuming you're asking why problems using unofficial derivatives of Ubuntu are are off-topic on Ask Ubuntu, we should migrate this to meta.

comment What are virtualization and KVM?
@Danatela Since KVM is a virtualization solution, these are hardly separate questions.

comment Computer will not boot into Ubuntu 12.04. Message “Input signal out of range”
To close reviewers: if you don't want to dupe this to that canonical question, it can still be closed as off-topic now (with the "cannot be reproduced" sub-reason).

comment Problem in installing Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit
"installation came to halt throwing some log error" Without knowing what the error said, it's unlikely anyone could suggest a specific solution, but as Danatela says, that question may help.

comment Dell XPS 13 Ubuntu 13.10 built-in display not working
Though this might be separate from that question since here one monitor works and another does not, it would be helpful to include information about whether or not any answers there helped (with details about what happened even for possible solutions that did not). This might still be closed as a duplicate--or as unclear--without that information, but if you edit your question, it will be automatically considered for reopening.
