@DoR: Awesome! It's even in Maverick, you don't have to wait until Natty to get it.

Or just ls -R if you don't want all the details.

comment Does Ubuntu One sync only the changed parts of a file?
I don't think it can be S3's fault, because Dropbox also uses S3: dropbox.com/help/7

comment How do I install Ubuntu?
Doesn't Wubi install permanently as well? I didn't think you still needed to burn a disc/flash drive.

comment Why is the default wallpaper in jpg format, rather than a lossless format like png?
You're probably right, but that's not an answer to my question. There some reason (which I assume is a good reason) that the Ubuntu developers decided to make the default a jpg. I'd like to know if that reason is purely hard disk/live CD space, or if there are other reasons as well.

comment Why does the “Mouse” preferences GUI not allow me to enable two-finger scrolling?
I'm afraid this doesn't work for me. It's ok though--I've got two-finger scrolling working, I just want to know why I couldn't do it from the GUI.

It's Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Studio XPS 16 (but I've had this problem since at least 10.04). You can see the details of my hardware in the lshw output that I posted.

comment Why does Ubuntu Download recommend 32-bit install?
The last point (about memory addresses) can be addressed on 32bit with PAE (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension). At least for me, Ubuntu automatically installed the PAE kernel when it realized I had 4GB of RAM during Ubuntu installation.

comment What Horoscope or Astrology software is available?
Not to be that guy, but I want to make sure you're aware that Astrology has absolutely no scientific backing. It's not my business what you do on your own time, but I hope that you are under no delusions that it's a real science.
