Also I would like to ask you to refer this official guide if you run into any troubles!

There's a website, called, "The Linux Counter," where you can register as a Linux user and also register the information about your system. No mailing lists or anything, it seems, if you choose to register. Once you register, you get a cool little Linux logo, showing you as a registered Linux user, with your registered user number.

From the website, you can see a breakdown by country, state and city, as to how many registered Linux users there are in each place. Also, you...

LQ should come up with a smarter way of ranking users

Posted 05-29-2009 at 05:39 AM by rob124

I have looked at how LQ ranks its users. I was astonished to notice that users are simply ranked by the number of posts they have. While this is a good way of recognising long time members, I find that misleading to especially new users. Of great concern is the title "Guru" that is given when someone reaches 5000 posts. I would have OKed it if only 'Addict' was used.
Most new users (even old users, and indeed everyone) know and believe that 'Gurus' are well knowledgeable, experienced...

Posted 11-05-2009 at 02:56 PM by Lufbery (The Slacker's Blog)

Recovering Windows boot after deleting the Linux partitions

Posted 08-30-2011 at 02:32 PM by TobiSGD

So you tried Linux in dual-boot with your Windows installation and after you deleted the Linux partition(s) your Windows won't boot anymore.
There is a simple fix for that, you have to just re-install your Windows boot-loader.

Windows XP:
  1. Boot the system from your Windows XP-CD, just like you booted the Linux-CD/DVD before.
  2. Start the recovery/repair console (not the repair installation).
  3. Type
    Code:
    fixmbr.exe
    and press Enter.
  4. Reboot.

Windows Vista/7:
  1. Boot the system
