comment Gradle finds wrong JAVA_HOME even though it's correctly set ubuntu 13.10

You should try it out first with Wubi, and avoid wiping your Dell disk. You'll probably find enough driver annoyances that you'll want to go back.

comment Laptop not responding after hibernating
I saw something like that when I close my W510 lid, hook it to my Lenovo dock with 2 monitors, and then try to wake it up. I had to reboot the computer completely to get it to work. As long as I leave mine off the dock, it works fine for me so far.

comment How to create a URL link on the Unity desktop
I disagree. Dragging from Firefox to desktop does not work in Ubuntu 13.04 . If I am incorrect, then to do it is a non-standard method (on the mouse) that I have not yet discovered, despite the video link you provide.

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.

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

comment How to open files from other machine running ubuntu
While this solution is a cute answer its not really a "Linux" solution to the problem. I don't think it would qualify as a solid answer.

comment What Can Be Done To Secure Ubuntu Server?
This looks similar to the SELinux system that you find on CentOS/Redhat but I bet SELinux is more modern.
