For some time now, there has been much talk about the Raspberry Pi revolutionising the teaching of computing in schools. Linux User & Developer has devoted much space and attention to the growing number of Jamborees and the increasing attention teachers are giving to the small, £25 bare-bones machine. It is, say advocates, the perfect way to introduce children to the world of computing, allowing them to see and actually interact with the innards of the machines they are using. It is, they add, a great platform for programming and for creating all manner of electronic wonders.
But for former journalist Alex Klein, it doesn’t quite go far enough and – simple as many believe it is to use – he believes the Raspberry Pi in its vanilla state is still too confusing for some. He points to the Raspberry Pi For Dummies guide which, at 400 pages, he feels is far too long and impenetrable. This is the reason why he began a Kickstarter project called Kano: in order to produce a user-friendly computer and coding kit, asking for $100,000. By the time the project was successfully funded on December 19, 2013, 13,387 backers had pledged $1,522,160.

Isn't it illegal? Isn't it abusing monopoly to enforce the fucking UEFI Secure Boot and locking me out of my own hardware. I don't want the piece of shit called Windows. Its a plague, it is something that should be wiped out of the earth.
Fuck you, Microsoft. Fuck you, Balmer and sodomize yourself with a baton up your ass.
TL;DR: Please help me on how to install Unity Ubuntu on a 32-bit processor with UEFI.submitted by neutron_
