User of Ubuntu since 11.04. Currently running 14.10. Amateur CLI geek. Interested in Javascript and, to a lesser extent, Python and Java.

That's an Iguana, not a lizard. And yes, there is a difference.

Random quotes...

Don't blame me. I'm an interpreter. I'm not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

Okay, so it seems like the problem is a great library for generating PDF files with PHP.
So almost true...

Alice: How do you know I'm mad?
Cat: You must be. Or you wouldn't have come here.

@sbergeron No point in making a new answer and deleting this one (if that is what you were thinking). If you want, just re-write the entire thing.

@muru Technicalities, really. You are right, but try to go beyond my wording choices please ;) Seems like your recent edits are more what I wanted.

comment Difference between Unity and GNOME
@Braiam Yep, apples to oranges. That is what this question is about. Yes, Unity is a shell, you're right. My tongue keeps twisting around all these words that are similar, but not quite the same. And no, we don't need a wikipedia article, just a (probably medium sized) answer that describes what GNOME is vs what Unity is. The difference can be (and is) very confusing at time, especially to new users.

I was really hoping for an answer that explained the differences between GNOME as a project and Unity as a compiz plugin/Desktop Environment, not so much an overview of their visual differences.

comment Difference between Unity and GNOME
I didn't downvote, but it would be nice if you clarified the first section. GNOME is much more than just a desktop environment. Ubuntu uses Gnome, just not Gnome shell (by default). Gnome 3 is a software stack, Gnome shell is a DE.

The question really has nothing whatsoever to do with gnome 2. Braiam: I was hoping you would highlight the differences between gnome (as a project) and Unity as a DE.

comment What are the difference between Unity and Ubuntu GNOME?
FWIW I downvoted because your answer was factually incorrect. You seem to have correct some of that so I have removed my downvote. However, I recommend editing your answer to include paragraph breaks. You also ramble a lot about gnome 2 which really has nothing to do with the question. Neither Ubuntu GNOME nor vanilla Ubuntu use Gnome 2 anymore.

comment What are the difference between Unity and Ubuntu GNOME?
Gnome 2 has long since become obsolete. Ubuntu GNOME uses Gnome 3 and Gnome Shell, not Gnome 2.

comment Why doesn't Match* work in xorg.conf?
Can you edit your question to be a little more clear? I'm sure I could dog through the manpages and figure out what exactly you are talking about, but it would be much better if you could clarify what you are talking about and what your goal is.

comment please help! Windows won't load after installing Ubuntu!
@JohnJoseph You might have, but currently you don't give us enough information to know for sure. Please edit your question to include more information. Did your computer come with Windows 8 installed? What options did you choose when you installed Ubuntu? Etc.
