comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
yea my issue was: 1) Removed Windows alltogether, 2) Booted to LiveCD, 3) Merged my newly free'd space with my Ubuntu partition, 4) Boot into Ubuntu from my SSD (not LiveCD).... 5 days and maybe 6-7 boots later it was borked. --- not an issue just mentioning it so others can see it MAY cause problems when diddling around with partition sizes.

comment Will installing Ubuntu on one partition affect the files on another?
I have had strange issues after removing windows and re-sizing my partitions.. using GParted from the liveCD everything appeared to work, but then things stopped wanting to mount, and finally I ended up with a borked system (no DE, no Internet, no GUI recovery mode, ect..) - however this all happened in the 5 days following the resize.

the "Yes, Ubuntu doesn't" is confusing.. can you think of a way to re-word this to be a bit more concise?

I find it very confusing that your arrows change color throughout the tutorial. What is the significance of the red over the blue? You should add a disclaimer outlining this information. :P

comment How to move Unity Launcher to a different monitor?
paste.ubuntu.com/844605 that is my monitors.xml file.. I have also attempted to run the listed command sudo xrandr --output DVI-I-2 --primary && nohup unity --replace & and the launcher still remains on my left (smaller) non primary monitor.

comment Why do I sometimes log in twice (instead of once)?
I do suffer from the same problem. I blame(ed) my windows partition. not off logic or sound reasoning... but because windows was buggy and p'd me off. I will try to find out more about what is causing the issue and post.

comment Removing the underlines from menu key words
Those are built into the application(s) themselves.. This is a design feature of the application developer and should be a question to them. Afaik making a change like this system-wide is not possible.

Y U ASK 16 QUESTIONS AND NO ACCEPT?! but seriously, you should go over your asked question list and review to see if any can be accepted yet. This is a community of Q and A. Rep aside, it is nice to know when a answer has actually solved the issue at hand.

comment Best approach to automatically processing .csv --> MySQL
This is a whole heap of questions in one.. To answer your title question. Goto StackOverflow.com, to answer "what is the best approach" you should probably goto programmers.SE... I just don't see what is Ubuntu specific other than "i'm building this app for Ubuntu, how?"
