comment Is clean formatting a pre-installed Windows 8 system and dual booting Windows and Ubuntu in Legacy worth it?
I would rather run my non-primary OS as a virtual machine. I think the dual boot thing is an artifact from days long past when VMWare hadn't yet existed.

Thanks, the Tweak tool allowed me to set various fonts to my favorite "Serif-9". It looks much better. Thanks!

comment Is there a standalone version of soapUI for Linux?
Not quite. If your using Oracle JDK, you'll need to uncomment a line from the soapui.sh to make it work, otherwise you'll get a gui related error. Also, I run it just fine with a 64-bit JVM.

comment How do I make java default to a manually installed JRE/JDK?
I am noticing the same thing: that the update-java-alternatives command does not work with a manually installed Oracle JDK, such as '/opt/java/jdk1.7.0_25'. Very annoying.

I am noticing that the 'update-java-alternatives' commmand from the java-common package doesn't work with Oracle JDK. Anyone know why?
