    Ubuntu MATE Installation

    Try a soft restart (e.g. use Mate's power buttons, open a terminal and run "reboot", Ctrl-Alt-F* into another tty session and run "reboot") after installation.

    Ubuntu MATE Installation

    I doubt it. When you restarted manually, did you do a soft restart from UM or did you do a machine reset in VB?

    Ubuntu MATE Installation

    Probably not. I'd probably just restart the VM and cross my fingers. There isn't much else to do in this situation.

    USB to HDD?

    Yes, it can. You will need to use the installer on your Live USB. What distro are you using?

    Any good recommendation of podcasts, youtube or twitch channels not created by you? Content in both English & Spanish are welcome.

    For the record: TWIL is produced by the Destination Linux Network. DLN has several other podcasts/websites/etc. that are worth checking out.

    JingOS

    Not that I can tell. I believe that it's run by a company called Jingling Tech, although the initial results on Bing didn't dig up any info on the company.

    JingOS

    I'm definitely planning to try it out, since I have a multi-touch, tablet-mode capable laptop.

    Umm... My teacher (whom I converted to Linux) noticed significant speed-ups in LibreOffice launch when he switched his laptop to Ubuntu. How significant? Windows took about a minute to load LO, while Ubuntu took only a few seconds.

    I recently checked out This Week in Linux. It seems to be pretty good.

    New Graphical YouTube Downloader based on Youtube-DL : Youtubedl-gui

    Of course--it's using Qt! (I'm terribly prejudiced.)

    New Graphical YouTube Downloader based on Youtube-DL : Youtubedl-gui

    From the screenshot you posted and the one on the Github repo, I think that the author has the buttons at the bottom of the window pretty short (as in vertically short). Maybe I'll have to fix it ;)

    To Linux or Not to Linux? That is the question

    Worth it? Absolutely. Windows 7 (despite being my favorite version of Windows due to the stellar UI) is no longer receiving security updates. This likely won't affect you; however, it does mean that you are more susceptible to ransomware and the like. As far as your laptop specs, Linux can take...

    Linux phone ?

    From this thread (actually what I posted): Read the thread that I linked to above. It has a lot of recent discussion on the state of mobile Linux.

    Stop google

    Google also locks down your phone and doesn't let you customize it (vendors do this too). A good example is the way that you cannot uninstall Chrome.

    Won't let me install Ubuntu

    Did you just copy the ISO to the USB drive or did you burn it to the drive? Possibly. In order to better help you, it would be nice to have some extra info, such as computer make and model, what app you used to create your bootable drive, etc. etc.

    Stop google

    I think that they actually had some closed source blobs in there, but the community is working on making open source firmware.

    What is the latest News on Linux as an OS base for mobile phones?

    I think that the Pinephone has a kill switch for that.

    Why are you amazed? People want Linux! I'd actually love to have one myself.
