Fun fact: I don't actually use ubuntu. Currently, I'm on arch, but I hop occasionally.

comment Triple boot win7,Ubuntu,Kali
Just have an ubuntu cd or usb in case things go wrong. As long as you don't delete or otherwise damage your current partitions, you will be able to recover your PC ;)

comment OpenJDK - Oracle is better?
Also, the benchmarks show little difference between the two. It is possible that if the guy did the tests again, openjdk would win by some miliseconds. Performance differs from system to system, and benchmarks aren't as accurate as you might expect. Therefor, I suggest relying more on your experience than benchmarks.

comment OpenJDK - Oracle is better?
Back when jdk6, the winner was hands-down oracle. Now, I tried running minecraft and intellij with both, and there is no noticeable difference. The only "proof" you can have is trying it yourself, the fact that openjdk is the reference implementation, and this blog post: weblogs.java.net/blog/robogeek/archive/2009/01/05/…

comment OpenJDK - Oracle is better?
@Alex Java (OpenJDK and Oracle) is split in two packages: The Java Runtime Environment (JRE), and the Java Development Kit (JDK). If you just want to run some java programs, the JRE is all you need. If you want to compile some java programs (javac, which stands for java compiler), you'll need the JDK. Install the JDK with sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk.

comment creating wine shortcuts
Or, you can use quotation, which is pretty much more readable. wine '/home/user/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Some Program with many spaces/program.exe'

comment How can I boot into Windows from GRUB rescue without a CD drive?
@LordLoh.: He's talking about grub rescue. Grub rescue drops you on a console without prompting and that console doesn't have a chainloader command. (not even a help command for that matter)

comment How to install Minecraft (Client)
Instead of using a .exe launcher/downloader to get the minecraft.jar, you can just download it from: Here. You don't need anything more than that jar and lwjgl to run minecraft, all the other files are created/downloaded automatically (Even if you haven't bought the game). Note that that's the url from which the official launcher downloads it.

Thank you! I still don't understand the reason for removing that option from the control panel :/
