Cinnamon 2.0 was released on 10 October 2013. From this version, Cinnamon is no longer a frontend ontop of the GNOME desktop like Unity or GNOME Shell, but “an entire desktop environment”. Cinnamon is still built on GNOME technologies and uses GTK+, but it no longer requires GNOME itself to be installed.

The Ubuntu Desktop Installer did not work for me so had to do it manually from the command line. I can confirm those commands do work. If you’ve ever re-installed Android onto your Nexus 7, its a virtually identical process.
So, what to do with an old, clunky Toshiba? Hmm. Well, the Mau-mau wanted a computer. And what the hell; both boys have one, more or less. So — why not? I decided I’d bite the bullet, and set up the old Tosh Sat with Ubuntu Linux 12.whatever the fuck the latest long-term stable release is.
Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core processor is one of the fastest ARM Cortex-A9 chips on the market. But up until now if you’ve had a tablet, TV stick, or other devices with an RK3188 chip, you’ve probably only been able to run Android on it.
For months, my ThinkPad collected dust in the closet because the prospect of rebuilding my old Windows 7 system from scratch seemed like an ordeal. That’s when I decided to give Ubuntu a try.
This week, we’re going to lay the initial groundwork for doing just about everything complicated with TurtleBot, and that means getting Ubuntu set up to coexist with Windows 7 on our desktop computer.
I messed up the Windows 8 boot partition on my laptop last night while trying to install Ubuntu in a dual-boot situaion. I wasn’t going to keep Ubuntu on for long. I had booted it from a USB stick previously. So why wasn’t booting Ubuntu from a USB stick good enough, and how did I wind up stuck in Linux land? I’m glad you asked; it is a bit of a long story.
The following tutorial was created in order to teach both Linux newcomers and existing Ubuntu users how to install the Ubuntu 13.04 operating system on their personal computer or laptop, even if the Ubuntu installer is pretty self-explanatory.
I’ve recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 Long Term Support (LTS). The main advantage of a LTS distribution is that once you clean it up, it stays like that for two years.

Majority of the developers stick to developing ROMs and mods with better features but some of them deviate to develop some things we haven’t seen before; one developer successfully ported the Native Ubuntu Linux operating system to ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700.
One of the biggest complaints I hear from new Ubuntu users is how easy it is to mess up an existing Ubuntu installation. Whether the issue stems from an update gone wrong, the hard drive crashing (which is actually a hardware issue) or simply the user deleting a directory best left untouched isn’t the point. The fact of the matter is, having an indestructible Ubuntu installation does have its benefits.
The Zealz GK802 is a little device about the size of a chunky USB flash drive. But unlike a flash drive, the GK802 is a fully functional little computer with a quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It ships with Google Android software, but it can also run Ubuntu and other Linux-based operating systems.
So, you’ve decided it is time to make the switch, or maybe you just want to see what you are missing out on. With Steam for Linux on the way, and most of what we do every day moving to the browser, maybe it is time to give Ubuntu a shot? We can help you try it out and then install for yourself.
The only problem was that it comes with Windows 8 preloaded, but I figured I’m going to have to bite the bullet and have a go at Windows 8 sooner or later, so why not. The good news was that I checked the specifications very carefully, and there was no mention of “UEFI” or “Secure Boot” or “Made for Windows 8″, so at least I shouldn’t have to fight with that yet.
