Ubuntu: request to move the Canonical IP policy web page

Filed under
Ubuntu

I'd like to request that the Community Council moves the Canonical IP
policy off the Ubuntu website.
http://www.ubuntu.com/legal/terms-and-policies/intellectual-property-policy

It was revealed last week that is policy breached the GPL and still
leaves open numerous gaps in the ability of people to freely share,
copy and modify Ubuntu. It is hurting the reputation of Ubuntu as a
welcoming and functional free software project that respects the
licence of the upstreams we depend on.

Ubuntu

For basic office tasks, the ProBook 455 Ubuntu isn't a bad desktop replacement, and Ubuntu has made big strides from niche project to a rounded OS that most people will adapt to comfortably.
Nonetheless, every one of this laptop's strengths seems to be countered by some related weakness. It's spacious and filled with ports, but clunky and heavy. Its operating system is feature-rich, but buggy. It's secure for now, but won't be in two years' time.

Will an upgrade to Windows 10 on a dual-boot system mess GRUB up?

If the setup is on a computer with UEFI firmware, with the boot files of all systems on the EFI Boot Partition, then I don’t see anything that will mess GRUB up during or after upgrading to Windows 10. That’s because the EFI Boot Partition is like a public park, where the space occupied by each operating system’s boot files is respected. So the Windows 10 upgrade script will only update the files and directory that pertains to the Windows boot manager. That this is true has been verified by none other than a Microsoft employee in this blog post. The same goes with the upgrade script of the installed Linux distribution(s), but you knew that already.
