@JohnMerlino my guess would be that the PPA allows for automatic updates when new versions are released.

Outlook and Internet Explorer usually. I would like Outlook to have its own icon, and Internet Explorer to have its own icon.

Unity makes a VMware window for each window open in the guest OS. Are you familiar with VMware and unity?

comment How to disable the grouping of windows on the launcher?
What is more productive for you is not necessarily more productive for me. After having used 14.04 for a month, I've found that - as I did in Windows - that I strongly dislike the grouping of windows and that it makes me less productive.

comment Computer crashes (segfaults?) after upgrading from 1GB RAM to 2GB
"Everything works fine with Windows" - the usage pattern in Windows is different than in Linux so the problem may not show. You should run a program like memtest86+ (check the boot menu on the Ubuntu CD) to be certain.

It is just a file, not a directory, which is why you cannot move a directory to it.
