Clean install Ubuntu Linux on PC or laptop

Ubuntu is probably the easiest Linux distro to install and comes packed with fantastic free (Open Source) software, rock-solid stability, support and excellent documentation. Important! 1: Remember that a clean install will overwrite your current operating system (ie. Windows) and your data (photos, video, music etc) unless you backup to another storage device before installing (and in a Linux compatable format). Windows Backup & Restore or System Recovery Discs are NOT compatable with Linux, you need to manually copy or move your files and data to the external storage device, like a USB flash drive or external hard drive (see below) before you begin the installation. 2: You will also need a DVD burner to (1) burn the ISO image to a blank DVD optical disc and then (2) to install Ubuntu.

New Designs for Learning: A Conversation with IDEO Founder David Kelley

Decades ago, he founded a design firm that dreamed up the computer mouse as we know it today. That firm has since evolved into IDEO, a global design company that has left its unique stamp on everything from consumer goods to social innovation. IDEO's work has probably touched your life in ways you don't even know. For years, Kelley has brought his passion for design into the classroom as a professor at Stanford's famed Institute of Design (or D.School, for those in the know). More recently, Kelley has set his sights on the K-12 classroom. Public School Insights: Let's start with a big question. Kelley: To me, design thinking is basically a methodology that allows people to have confidence in their creative ability. So design thinking is hopefully a framework that people can hang their creative confidence on.

While it may not sport the latest USB 3.0 standard or come with Blu-ray options or switchable graphics, the HP G42's feature set is competent enough for most users who just want an inexpensive portable with decent hardware performance. Upside: One of our key gripes is with the use of glossy surfaces for thin-and-light as well as ultraportable laptops. If the machine is designed to be portable, why add an exterior layer which picks up fingerprints and requires regular cleaning?

But what really attracts consumers to the G42 is the price.
