[all variants] I can't do nothing. Stupid root permission bug.view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi! I have a disturbing bug with root permissions in this? I installed xampp through a normal graphical user interface, it ran fine. However it's useless if the whole crap is locked. A web application requires files to be editable in order for it to work. How can a php content management website run in this locked system?

Not a problem, just a newb progress reportview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – First I want to thank the linux community for being here. Not trying to blow sunshine up anybody's butt, but my disgust level with Microsoft just continues to elevate. I remember linux from the days when Nessus was free and Netcat was new (yeah I'm that old). I drifted away, and now I'm back. But clients still want Windows, so how to deliver? Answer: free virtual environment. (Hardware)

Partitioning hellview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I had a 500 GB HDD (and spare for monthly clones). I was going to upgrade to 3 TB drives but found that my motherboard BIOS does not support GPT as no matter what I did it locked up after checking for bootable media. I ended up buying 2x 2 TB drives and used CloneZilla to copy the data from the 500 GB drive to the 2 TB drive. (Hardware)

http://forums.anandtech.com – I got some great help out here recently with a new build. It's been 8 years since my last build, and I'm using XP, someone suggested I wait until Windows 10 came out to upgrade my OS. Is there an easy way to tell if I will be able to put my current hard drive with XP into a new system (motherboard and CPU) and have it work properly, until Win 10 comes out? (Hardware)
