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.

revised Documents stored on separate internal drive, Ubuntu doesn't notice on startup
We don't really need the [rhytmbox], [wallpaper] and [document-management] tags as this is a more canonical problem with cross-partition symlinking. Altered tags accordingly. +fstab from comment

comment What is a Linux equivalent to pkzip or winzip or the GUI version of 7zip?
@Bucic A Nautilus right click option is not really CLI, is it? Obviously it's beyond the imagination of many users that essential tools are already installed in Ubuntu. No need to direct people to possible harmful external sources, .deb files or a ppa.
