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.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 LTS desktop on a virtual machine
Graphics 3D support depends on the virtualization software you are using (which?). Here 14.04 runs without issue on Virtual Box.

comment Linux server guest and Windows host shared folder virtualbox
Try with steps in my answer there: askubuntu.com/questions/30396/… - for a server host/guest I'd recommend to use network shares (Samba) rather than the VBox shared folders.

they are called guest additions. They entirely depend on the guest OS.

What VNC server are you using? Is sharing enabled for the session you's like to view remotely?

comment Ubuntu installer doesn't see my partitions, neither wubi nor usb stick. What to do?
In case your partitions are "dynamic" or the drive is hibernated (incl. fast-boot) or encrypted then Ubuntu won't be able to read them.

To try out Ubuntu, and in case performance speed is not critical, let me suggest installing it in a virtual machine.

comment Not formatting a partition while installing Ubuntu but still data getting lost from that partition!
This should not happen. Did you tell the installer to also mount your HOME partition to mountpoint /home?

You could try if you have more luck with LVM: askubuntu.com/questions/149140/2-hard-drives-one-partition - but it's more a guess, haven't tried that on such small drives.

What we do here is we created a shared media directory for all users using ACL, nicely explained here: askubuntu.com/questions/82628/… or (command line) there: askubuntu.com/questions/52584/shared-folders-for-all-users

Is this two pyhsical drives or is this (more likely) two partitions on a single drive? What do you get when choosing "someting else" on installation?

Erm - what was your actual issue? Can your DLNA client access the media files (from what we see here it should)?
