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.

comment How to install Lubuntu Desktop Environment and ONLY the desktop environment?
I would start by just installing openbox. This will create an "openbox" option in lightdm. Then just install the individual parts of LXDE, of which there are only a few and configure your openbox to use them. Then use the openbox session to use your LXDE-only setup.

comment DATA LOSS V V IMPORTANT
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.
