I use Ubuntu 10.04, and recently I’ve had some computer problems. It took me a while to find where Google Chrome installs in Linux. Chrome doesn’t install to the Users Home folder like other programs, rather it installs to “~/.config/google-chrome”.
I use Thunderbird for all of my email. Its easy to backup and move to another computer, and I love the anti-spam option. In the past I’ve been able to backup and move Thunderbird from Linux to Linux and also Windows to Linux. I used these steps to get up and running quickly.
From the release notes regarding the release of Ubuntu 10.10 on Sunday Oct 10, 2010 (10/10/10)
Some time ago a group of hyper-intelligent pan dimensional beings decided to finally answer the great question of Life, The Universe and Everything. To this end, a small band of these Debians built an incredibly powerful distribution, Ubuntu. After this great computer programme had run a very quick 3 million minutes…or 6 years the answer was announced. The Ultimate answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is…42, and in its purest form 101010. Which suggests that what you really need to know is ‘What was the Question?’. The great distribution kindly pointed out that what the problem really was that no-one knew the question. Accordingly, the distribution designed a set of successors, marked by a circle of friends…to ultimately bring Unity to all things living…Ubuntu 10.10, to find the question to the ultimate answer.
