    Please be aware the language on this video is very ‘colourful’.

    Should be most amusing to Linux users, but everyone should find it highly amusing.

    The best thing is, he does raise a few very good points!

    Nope, that’s just how he is.

    Watch quite a few more of his ‘reviews’ and they’re all pretty much the same.

    I THINK that it’s an act, because SURELY noone is THIS stupid:

    Guesses in a post as to WHAT his problem was (never mind swapping hard drives physically to change OS instead of through bios or GRUB).

    Cranial-rectal inversion?

    I think he needs an abacus…

    OH, wait! The Linux install failed on that too…

    americans.

    who tf uses CD’s? wonder if he checked the hash. tell you whats more ‘king annoying – trying to download a 4GB+ ISO in windows. (even in FF etc)

    i hate having to write a DVD for OS installs (whotf wants optical discs in this era), but ive never had any probs writing in linux. not that id touch ubuntu.

    something i need to experiment with if i ever get round to, is writing an OS ISO to a usb stick so its bootable. not sure how to go about converting the boot sectors. someone should prob start a little project ‘ISO to flash converter’. doubt it would take much.

    i hate when people talk about ‘burning’ dvds. maybe might not have had burn enabled? otherwise write speed?
    so, guesses: american, hash, burn, speed. in that order.

    ps: im just kidding. united statesers are a highly educated people. envy of the world. (present company excepted)

    Done already at:
    http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

    There are other ways, including ways to make bootable windows dvds and cds. Yes you can use the cli. 😆 😆

    If he is not smart enough to burn a cd/dvd iso in windows or Linux, then unetbootin is over his head too.

    However, for those who are it is a “killer app” and if the target computer is bootable from a usb stick you can easily install an operating system very quickly as the read rate is much higher!

    thanks irish. i’ll try that next time i do a fresh install. prob won’t help with windows, though. perhaps if there were some kind of similar app that could mount a straight iso from whatever location and present it to the system as a bootable dvd. ‘bootable usb/iso wrapper’? got a link for me on that one? : )

    : ) its nice to see im not alone with the need. i really wish theyd introduce a proper solid state film/game distribution medium.

    blu ray is the minidisc of the 00’s. am i right? obsolete before it went mainstream. dyou know theyd been developing that crap for about 10 years? (blu ray)

    ps:
    lets have a little less mockery of the american laptop. i think hes kind of cool.

    That’s what I use for my *nix installs.

    It does work for windows ISOs however I’ve only found it to be <70% reliable with them.

    Oh and my thought on why he’s having trouble with burn the disk.

    I reckon, he’s burning the disk just fine, but he’s burn the .iso FILE firectly to the disc rather than burning the contents of the .iso to disc.

    Or the download was corrupted and a hash check would have shown this.

    Whatever the cause, after 2-3 burns (depending on whether the burn was successful for failed prior to completion) you’d surely try to diagnose the prob.

    Breaking the discs then blaming Ubuntu for covering you in disc shards is not classed as diagnosis btw 😀
