OK so over the last few days I've done some stuff to my Ubuntu that have taught me a few things I'll list and explain two:
1. Broken dependencies
OK I downloaded Firefox 3.6 and tried to install it but I got a dependency issue and then went on to get the debs for that lib only to damage my system.
What happened - I had to uninstall Firefox 2.X that I had on my system and some other stuff.
Now - Well i used Opera for 2 weeks and then returned to Firefox the 3.6 version now its quiet easy to use that thing and pin-ing to the applications-internet menu was also easy.
1. Open a terminal and type sudo -s then enter your password.
2. Extract this http://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-3.5.3&os=linux&lang=en-GB to your home folder.
3. Go to the application thing and right click it and select 'edit menu'
4. Select internet and click add.
5. Click on the picture and choose you favorite picture either from the shown icons or you can click browse.
6. Save that.
7. Type a name like Firefox and then on command select browse and then got to that Firefox file you extracted and select the file named Firefox.
8. Save that and DONE!!!

I recently had school holidays and decided to fix my some what old Intel Pentium 3 with 3 GB hard Drive space and 128 MB RAM and a 933 MHZ processor. The problem was that I could not boot from CD-ROM and so I had some working to do but it hit me that I could use my other PC to install the Ubuntu OS.
Now the thing is I have tried this before ( installing an OS on one PC and using the hard drive on another) and it had not worked but guess what with ubuntu it worked perfectly.
Why is this great, well say you want to use a new release or change your OS but you do not have the necessary system tools required by the release then you should now get new hardware not with this.
Note since you do not meet system requirements you will have a slower computer but hey its very nice to know this kind of stuff.

hey look at this am playing super mario on my linux Ubuntu machine aint it cool.
How-just download and install wine and all is well after that.
then use the terminal to intall any windows application well maybee its not all but most, like microsoft office,flash games,and the likes!
so get a super mario or any other flash game and place it on your desktop then open the terminal and type:cd Desktop
after that type:wine thenameofyourgame and put the .exe efter that.
press rntre and you are done!
oh if it does not work try other games/application most will work sooner I heard the guys are working on that.
comment on this: Is wine like having windows XP,vista, 7, 2k or anyother. Keep in mind that you can apply windows themes on wine! for me hell yes its the best most legal way to rip Gates!
