from 32-bit OS to 64-bit OS

Posted 06-19-2010 at 08:57 AM by ionraedt

I am working with Ubuntu for quite a while (now 10.4 / 32bit).
As I have a 64-bit processor, I'd like to try a 64 OS.

You find enough meanings on the net about "why" and "why not" to change over to an 64-bit OS.
However, you don't find a lot about HOW to do it preserving as much as applications, settings and data from the old 32-bit system.
In short, what is the best way to upgrade your OS to 64-bit ??

Any comments are welcome...

Moving ubuntu minimize, maximize, & close buttons on Ubuntu 10.04

Posted 05-15-2010 at 10:04 AM by jkzfixme

As I drink my scotch after a long day of golfing I ponder life's great philosophical questions, such as the direction that Linux is heading, and if the wife is going to yell at me for that new scotch stain on the couch. Are we men, or are we mac users ? I mean seriously, whats with the buttons on the left ? Is it some insidious plot to ruin my optimistic attitude in life, like the KFC Double Down ? Is it a new direction that Ubuntu is going if it has already been trodden down by turtleneck wearing...

Migrating from WinXP to Ubuntu 9.10

Posted 03-01-2010 at 01:08 PM by SrDorothy

Finally!...I'm spending most of my time working in the Ubuntu half of my computer (multiboot). I gave up wishing the GUI networking stuff would work, and mounted my docs from the server using the command line; then automounted by editing /etc/fstab I had heard about this in my Linux group, but got the details by searching on the Internet.

I also have changed, mostly, the applications I use to those I can use in Ubuntu 9.10. There are still a couple of newsletters I am doing in Windows...
