You should have read the rules for posting. Your URGENT is not really important.
Good Luck.

i wonder if the moderators of the LQ forums have considered removing these 'URGENT' posts as soon as they are discovered, that depending ofcourse on the individual situation the OP finds themself in.

if, for instance, they have just hosed their HD then a degree of sympathy may be shown and the approperiate help offered, but i wonder if threads like this should be delt with zero tolerance and removed as soon as they are found?

people should not start threads in this way

You might try Ubuntu Studio. Also - hold your breath - Adobe has recently joined the Linux Foundation and will be porting their software to Linux.


No. However, they will rename them. LQ tries to remain friendly and helpful in any given situation. Threads are almost never deleted.

Hi Yuva3d,

Welcome to Linux Questions, whilst there is nothing in the rules that states that you cannot post with a subject of "Urgent", most members tend to avoid posts with these titles, as we are volounteers and therefore not being paid to resolve your issue.

If you have a requirement to have problems resolved on an urgent basis (especially for corporate use) then you should contemplate taking a support agreement with your distribution provider.

Please take time to read the LQ rules:

Additionally please take some time to read Trikykid's post at the top of the Linux Newbie forum:

When posting a question, please try to give all relevant information, for example: I know that you have a Dell Workstation, however I don't know what model it is, what chipset, amount of installed Ram. Is this for home use, work use? What have you tried?

I would suggest downloading some "Live Distro's" and checking to see which one suits your needs.

Check out Distrowatch:

I will answer threads marked "URGENT", but I automatically think and type at 1/4 speed......

The "getting started" link below might help also.

I think the OP has been beaten up enough. One last word on the whole "Urgent" matter - we ask that threads have a descriptive title to assist those who would provide help and also anyone who searches for help. The more descriptive, the better. Also, everyone must now read this tutorial on question asking. Not mandatory, but there will be a random test and a suitable punishment for failure

Any distro should be fine, but you will probably have to do some work with either Wine or with Crossover Office to have them work in Linux.
