comment Why doesn't Ubuntu remove old kernels automatically?
@PaddyLandau I'm using the last LTS release. Maybe that implies more caution and by default configures different behavior? I had three kernels left installed, but they were not consecutive versions (something like 35, 51, 52). I assume those are the last three I booted, but I'm not sure. I don't use this machine daily, so I'm not updating that regularly. Maybe there's some quality measure that your kernels failed and mine did not due to my low usage?

@PaddyLandau: See @andrewdevans' answer. I just did autoremove and dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall | grep linux shows three kernels installed.

comment How can I improve Ubuntu overall system performance?
Buying more memory won't help you if you aren't getting near 100% memory usage unless you follow other steps (ramdisk).

comment Chromium 34 and later cannot detect flash plugin
On 14.04 I closed all chromium windows, but there were still chromium processes in the background. So if this doesn't work, try rebooting your computer (or go kill processes if you know what you're doing).
