Brasaro has spoiled my DVD RW, all types, Blanking them has left them unusable again anywhere.
Would not read USBs, USB mouse hangs every now and then, i have to unplug and plug again and again in different USB ports, suddenly in one of them it will work for some time.
Browser crashed often, after the latest update.
Machine makes a lot of grinder noise, when i insert an ordinary movie CD or DVD to play,
It is its wim and wish, to read or not to read any CD or DVD.
I have been not been able to install my nVidia graphic card, when i activate it the system would not start. It simply hangs, with a curser at the right corner of the screen blinking happily forever. I have to cut the electric supply and retry again to the same effect, forceing to start with live DVD and reinstall all over, formatting my hard disk. It is pathetic i cannot use my graphic card.
Lot of Java problems. NSEindia.com.
I am afraid , the forum is not for people like me, but only for experts in software.
By paying some money i get a Fit it and Forget it OS in Windows, am i wrong.
I may be asked for details, only to be rediculed, about my lack of knowledge.
Most of the applications MAY be updated and not supported or certified by Ubuntu. For Windows, there are any number of Free software for any task.
My children can not play any of the game demos even.
I may be called childish, but for a simpleton like me, do i have a choice.
Rbv, You are not childish or a simpleton. This can be hard if you are not software savy at least in the beginning. It is worth the starting hassle. Once you get it working you will still be agravated at times as I am. IF I were you I would buy Windows and get the help to to dual boot system on your computer. You can fall back to windows when you are trying to get some project done that is temporarley over your head in linux and you don't have time to learn. As you gain experience you will find you will go back to windows less and less and you will feel alot of pride as you become more proficiant with Ubuntu. I am 76 years old and learning comes hard at my age. It's not about being smart it's a matter of hanging in there. In Ubuntu you have the advantage of using every concivable kind of program to do almost anything that can be done on a computer. You have a program that is safe and a program you don't have to buy a virus program for every year. I have Cinelerra on my computer and I did not pay one red cent for it. though I think I did offer make a small donation. I guarantee you it will be continually upgraded not become obsolete. I had Premier on Windows it cost a pile of money and a few years ago when I up graded to XP it would no longer work. Every time I get hot around the colar and even concider going back to Windows I think about that. Not only that it is a wonderful thing to use software that users have helped to write, many of them as a hobby. If were you I would do what I need to do to get done what you need to do, but I would stick with Ubuntu and for that you will be paid back many times over in satisfaction and good service from it.
