comment How to prevent Thunderbird from updating automatically?
All software is updated centrally via the Update Manager in Ubuntu. As already stated, you can use Synaptic to lock the version, but i wouldn't do that (let yourself have the latest and greatest version if you can!). Instead, hit "Don't Check" when that window pops up again, and make the decision on compatibility yourself. If something plays up, disable it, if not, you can make the choice to leave well alone.

comment How to install last version of Opera without losing opera-unite?
It may be possible to do so from source, but as they will be disabling their hosting of it soon, it would all be for nothing.

comment Will long-term use of ubuntu via wubi harm my PC?
@Linux-Fan I too have a recovery partition that i (originally) wanted to preserve. If you launch GParted (included in the Ubuntu CD) you will find a much nicer way of managing partitions, you can just drag them to where you want them, and leave the free space to select in the install.

comment What is the way to get the latest version of LibreOffice?
I don't know, that PPA doesn't have anything listed for Oneiric (11.10). It is whoever maintains the PPAs decision as to what versions (of libreoffice) are sent out to what versions (of ubuntu).

Question: What is wrong with not having the propriety drivers? Does it just lack 3D support and the card sits idle or what?
