My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

you have 8 GB of swap assigned to your virtual drive. In case you need more space see: askubuntu.com/questions/88647/…

comment Using Ubuntu as a main OS on my Netbook Designed for Windows 7
Lubuntu certainly is a good choice of a lightweight desktop if you don't need much of other applications that come with stock Ubuntu. Nevertheless personally I did not experience that much of a performance boost as compared to any other flavour.

comment Using Ubuntu as a main OS on my Netbook Designed for Windows 7
We can not give you any hardware recommendation, as the performance experience is highly subjective and depends much on applications you use. I can only say that until a few months ago we had stock Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit running stable (though not really fast of course) on an Atom single core Samsung NC10 2GB RAM.

"cable is so hot" appears to be a hardware issue (broken cable, wiring, broken jack) unrelated to Ubuntu. Did you try to replace it?

comment How to access the router UI when it's IP address says “the webpage is not available”? Its not just plug and play as in windows?
Two possible issues: 1. How is your router connected to your computer? Try with an Ethernet cable. 2. Did you disable IPv4 in Network Manager at any time? It only shows an IPv6 address for eth0.

comment problem in installation of ubuntu in virtualbox :(
The error you mention should only occur when booting a 64-bit kernel. Your Ubuntu .iso probably is 64-bit.

comment Installing Brother MFC scanner drivers, on Ubuntu after 12.04 / Status of Brother scaner support over USB?
This is only for the brscan driver for old to very old devices. These may be supported natively by Sane. Newer scanners are well supported by the native >= brscan2 drivers. Do you have any issues?

comment No audio over display port (adaptor) - hdmi
After Editing GRUB we also need a sudo update-grub and a reboot to work, but it obviously will only work on an ATI-card driven system. Please also do not put your user to the audio group (who told you you should)?
