Start Menu right-click “Properties” option does not work/missing in Lubuntu 14.04view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – In Lubuntu 13.10, when you right-click on any Start Menu program entry, such as Firefox or Audacious, you have two options: "Add to Desktop" and "Properties". In Lubuntu 14.04, the "Properties" option does not work. When you click on it, nothing happens. In fact when I click on the "Properties" option the entire Start Menu freezes. (Hardware)

Is a Samsung 840 EVO an upgrade to an Intel x25-m?view story

http://hardforum.com – My current OS/main drive is an Intel x25-m 160 GB. For space reasons, I bought a Samsung 840 EVO 500 GB. I'm wondering, is it worth moving my OS to the Samsung, or should I just keep my OS on the Intel and install games and other things to the Samsung? Would there be a noticeable enough difference moving everything--OS and games--all to the Samsung? (Hardware)
