comment Just recentlygot Ubuntu and have no idea what to do
I wasn't really criticizing the answer. I think the question should be refined to just be the one question. Then the subset of your answer would get an uptick, maybe even a 50 bounty for attention from me.

comment Just recentlygot Ubuntu and have no idea what to do
I like parts of your answer, but I really dislike other parts. Personally, I think you did a great job with the LoL section. I'ld love to see that on a "How do I install League of Legends?" only question. You would have had the upvote there. The skype part of this question should probably be closed as duplicate or edited out. The Java part of the question should be closed as duplicate or edited out. So, good job on the LoL answer, but the other two parts shouldn't exist.

For my asus powerbook, I had to turn off UEFI in bios and delete all the gpt partitions, or it kept TRYING to boot UEFI even though I told it not to.

comment How does Ubuntu run on a Mac
I read this as about 3 separate questions and about 2 statements. 1) How does Ubuntu run on a Mac? - expecting an explanation of dual boot and lots of other stuff I want to run a LAMP stack because that is a lot better documented than Apache/MySQL/PHP on Mac. 2) Is it good to have a separate cheap computer rather than my personal computer to run a development/staging environment? I like the simplicity of the time-machine feature. 3) Can I use version control and private git repos to deploy websites? If so, how?

comment How do I properly install a python app that is not packaged (and without installer)
It's not the answer to your question, but with python3 applications - relative imports work a LOT better. So if it's py3k and has a requirements.txt - being just plain portable and not having to install is nice.

Might be better to install gcc-multilib and g++-multilib.

comment How to install recommended packages
I don't disagree, but I was talking to someone about the question in chat and arrived at: ~"Uptick from me. I wouldn't accept that answer if I were the OP though. I would want someone to point at where in the packaging process you can recommend a category containing packages and let it choose."

comment How to install recommended packages
I suspect it's an interpreting output problem. I don't think aspell would actually recommend ALL dictionaries. I do think it would say "I know you want at least one dictionary, so I'm going to recommend a category of package aspell-dict. I'm not going to actually recommend EVERY package in that category, but I'll try to help you choose one."

comment I'm trying to get started with LXC containers, and I'm getting a permissions problem on starting an unpriviledged container. How can I fix it?
This string of tutorials should get you started stgraber.org/2013/12/20/lxc-1-0-blog-post-series - it's where I ran in to the unpriv container problem that caused this problem.
