This is, you may have noticed, a sticky thread covering many years. As a matter of fact it has been on LQ a whole month less than 3 years more than I have.

It is a sticky because it is informing you, as an Ubuntu user, where to get the best information you can get for setting up your Ubuntu, or any "family" member, install up.

Expresions of delight or gratitude are certainly not disallowed.

It is, by the way, a great site. I haven't logged in for years, no longer an Ubuntu user, but they will be needing help updating the site for the next release fairly soon. You might try setting up an account so you can help edit in any changes that are needed for that next release, particularly if you are using the Ubuntu-testing version right now.

Potentially, this thread could be very beneficial provided it is organized by Ubuntu version number (13.04, 14.04. 15.04 ...).
Ubuntu, over the years, has undergone numerous revisions that make some the older posts "obsolete".
Additionally, some of the older links provided in the posts are now "broken".
In posting, the website noted in bright red letters: " Please note that this thread has not been replied to in over 6 months. Please ensure your reply is still relevant and timely." Obviously that raises the question of whether this thread should be kept.

Should this thread be kept, I would suggest that the posts (in line with being a Ubuntu guide) reference specific (topical) on-line documentation.

Ubuntu: Fstab
Wikipedia: Fstab
so on.

And: under the appropriate distro sections, including one for Dapper drake.
I could not find any "starterguides" nor any other type of help is searching for help with Ubuntu.

In my estimation, this thread is woefully out of date and of little value.
