    The Redmond folks don't want you changing Vista because, as far as they
    are concerned, Vista is the best thing since sliced bread. If you're
    interested in an operating system that allows you to take control, check
    out Ubuntu at Order the free Live CD which you can run
    without installing to see if your hardware is compatible. It's free and
    they will even pay for the postage to send it to you. It comes with
    access to over 25,000 free programs and you can install it on as many
    computers as you like.

    Here's a little video to show you the difference between Vista with Aero
    and Ubuntu with Beryl:

    What menu? On what computer?

  6. However remember that just because a computer can run a Ubuntu live CD does
    not mean Ubuntu can be installed on that PC.
    In my case my vaio pcg fx101 will quite happily run the live CD but Ubuntu
    will not install on it.
    The installer on the live CD hangs and the alternative install disk (which
    is not a live CD) also fails to install the boot loader.

    I have previously run Suse Linux on the same PC BTW so it is a Ubuntu

    Also when you get to the disk partitioner be extra careful with what you
    choose or you will delete all of your windows, programs and data and when
    Ubuntu pops up the warning screen it is identical whether it is going to
    delete your windows or if it is not going to.

    This from someone that lies, insults and blusters in every post and has
    openly admitted he's too stoopid to install Ubuntu.

    Ubuntu isn't really meant to be installed on ten year old machines. Can
    you install Vista on that machine?

    More usual? So what's new?
    Who do you think you're fooling...other than yourself?

  10. Not long ago you were recommending Ubuntu to run on old machines.
    I have no idea.
    It would probably want more RAM.
    IIRC M$ say 512M is the minimum.
    On the other hand Ubuntu is supposed to work in 256M.

    The ALT+SPACE shortcut is an alternative to clicking the icon in the
    upper-left corner of an application window. In programmers terms, this
    is called the "System Menu" or "Application Menu". It has been around
    since Windows 1.0, and will probably still be around for many more years
    to come. (at least until technology has advanced enough where we won't
    need keyboards and mice, anyway).

    The options that this menu provides allows for applications windows to
    be moved, resized, closed, minimized and maximized by using the

    such that this menu does not appear, but you cannot remove it after the
