I enjoy using Ubuntu (sans Unity) and think open-source software will, and should, play a more dominant role in normal people's lives, but I am far from a Linux advocate. Or to put it another way, I'm more like a Linus than a Stallman.

Perhaps I'm the only one amused by this, but my most popular answers relate to opening magnet links from a web browser.

I like using the Awesome window-manager. Many questions about Awesome can be resolved by perusing a more experienced user's rc.lua file.

Most recently, I've been trying out i3, but I think I'll stick with Awesome as my main environment.

It sounds like you chose to erase over your old info... and that's what the install did. There are recovery programs and such you can try, but this isn't really a linux problem anymore.

comment How to watch Apple keynote videos from the website
@MarcoCeppi I'm baffled as to why Apple wouldn't want as many people to watch this as possible. It's probably more a web development issue than a decree from Apple to bar Linux users from watching their streams. Anyway, it's not hard to get around; see my answer below.

comment Awesome WM menu missing Firefox
I'm also unsure whether there was ever an item for sensible-browser in the original Debian menu. In any case, the issue is how to get items onto the Debian menu; it is not an Awesome issue.
