comment Advice on partitioning 11.10 at Installation time
From a technical end, I don't know what the implications are, but from a usage standpoint, I've had the same: 1 swap, 1 primary, several logical, and have had no problems with it.

comment Do I need same monitor sizes and resolutions for multi monitor support
For me, the ease of setup depended far more on my video card than on which distro - my Nvidia card was very simple to set up, ATI/AMD card was not nearly as smooth. (Obviously a sample size of 2 can't prove anything)

I can't speak to 12.04, but I have used both 10.04 and 11.10 with dual monitors of differing resolutions.

comment Get xfce desktop back
Ah - yeah, I never used those. I do the majority of my interactions with files from the commandline anyway, so that's no loss for me. Thanks for solving this mystery for me!

comment Get xfce desktop back
I do have use dopbox and hasn't seemed to be hampered by the lack of Nautilus... So far at least, this has prevented the behaviour.

comment Get xfce desktop back
I suspect you're right. I generally do use Thunar. I just removed Nautilus completely - we'll see if that fixes it. (I'll accept this answer if I can go a few computer reboots without it happening again)

comment What features does vim-tiny have?
Wouldn't it be far simpler to just install vim than learn a new set of restrictions, limitations, and short cuts?

Whoohoo! That did it. Not sure why the gnome mixer worked when the others didn't, but thanks!

comment Is using a VirtualBox safer than using WINE?
Depending on how you got your copy of XP, you might be able to purchase an install disc for a reasonable amount of money. For example, I needed to re-install Vista on a laptop for a family friend, and I was able to get an install CD from Dell. (Likely only works for OEM from the manufacturer. Either way, you must have a valid key already)
