comment How can I know how long `dd` cloning will take?
@LuisAlvarado, yes, you can clone a disc like that. Mech has used another partition as the output, but you could also output to a regular file named like "sda.img"

comment How to install rgdal on Ubuntu 12.10?

comment What are disadvantages if I use Ubuntu 10.10?
I agree with K.K. and To Do. You don't want outdated software that isn't supported by third parties. You want to go with 12.04, possibly with a xfce/xubuntu desktop.

You're not new to askubuntu, so is it safe to assume you're not interested in xubuntu or lubuntu (a lighter desktop environment)?
