comment Replacing Windows 8.1 with Ubuntu 14.04
Consider the question: If I chose replace Windows with Ubuntu, do I lose the other partition too?

comment “Not enough space” - while there is A LOT of space
What do you mean by "I decided to install a game on another USB device." Please edit the question and indicate if this is a Windows game and how are you trying to install it? Native Ubuntu programs and games cannot be installed in any location other than the default.

comment Select account based on password instead of username
I don't have an answer for what you want. However, I have a suggestion. You can disable the predefined user names, and make the system prompt for you to type the user name first and password second. If you do this, you can create two similar user IDs with different passwords, for regular use and panic use. The userIDs need to be different. The two names can be identical to confuse others. See How to change unity's default login screen to allow users to type in their login?

comment How to upgrading to new release automatically or download the release iso once it's released?
I agree with @Braiam. I have done many upgrades over the years I have used Ubuntu. I can't remember a time, when the upgrade completed without any user interaction. There is always one or more config files I had changed, that the upgrade wants me to look over and decide whether to replace of retain.

comment Install other version of Ubuntu from an x86 12.04 LTS live flash
You can't do what you want if you don't have access to another computer (with and OS) or if you have another USB flash. If you have a running computer (connected to the Internet) or an Internet Cafe nearby, you can erase and recreate a 64 bit Ubuntu LiveUSB in the existing flash drive. If you don't have a second computer, you will need a second empty flash drive to create the new 64 bit LiveUSB into.

comment Is Wine what I think it is?
You ask the same question as the duplicate except, you provide an answer and ask is your answer correct. As far as performance loss question goes, it should be a separate question if at all. Your last sentence of the first para notes there is very little performance hit. Then you ask for other's opinions. AFIK seeking opinion is off topic. I am not saying there is no value added. The two questions should be merged.

comment Access files from my nas
You need to setup auto mount your NAS. This will depend on the brand and kind of NAS and the protocols it supports. If you edit the original question add your NAS make and model and the protocols it supports, someone may be able to help you. See askubuntu.com/search?q=auto+mount+NAS for a list of questions on this topic.

comment unable to install ubuntu 12.04 over windows 8
@Web-E, thanks for pointing out the error. I have Retracted the duplicate close vote. The question is not clear. The title says "unable to install." However, the main text indicates "...but after installing it is showing only single one partition."

comment How to reinstall Ubuntu in the easiest way?
This is hard to say. In general Linux does not become slow over time in my experience like Windows. However, I have experienced slowdown at start-up and shut-down after I had installed something. So it is possible removing all the old stuff will make it faster. If you search for upgrade versus fresh install, you will find many prefer a fresh install to reduce the accumulated junk. In any case, 14.04 is supposed to be faster than 12.04. So it will be hard to say in the end.

comment How to reinstall Ubuntu in the easiest way?
@mrSuperEvening It depends on how you installed cinamon lubuntu etc. If you had installed just the cinamon desktop environments (DE) and the LXDE on top of Ubuntu via Ubuntu Software Center, or the apt-get command, then yes. Either method will delete them. If you installed these from their own LiveDVD/CD/USB in separate partitions, then no. In that case you will have to remove those partitions first and reallocate the empty space to Ubuntu during the Something else stage of reinstall.
