Ubuntu backup awesomeness

Filed under
Ubuntu
Humor

Twas a night before Christmas it was the 12th to be exact at 3 am beside my computer I did sat.

My ubuntu did stall, I had pondered and pondered and did a fresh install.

Swiftly I got to the the manual partition, then suddenly I had a fine apparition.

What I had saw in my wandering minds eye was my home directory gone arye.

And never again would I have to stay awake so late instead I shall be sleeping (isnt that great).

I jumped and I yelled with vigour and excite “Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night”

(ok im stopping with the poetry its too hard to make everything rhyme)
What that meant was my lucid install broke because of multiple issues with Xorg because I use the Nvidia drivers. The straw that broke the camel’s back was trying out the RGBA stuff thats coming in for lucid.

Long story short I had lots of problems

Rest Here

That being said, Chinese OEMs have been known for pretty poor quality products for quite some time. Many of them still are, but a number of China-based OEMs improved in that regard, a lot. Manufacturers like Xiaomi, Huawei and Meizu have great hardware, and they’ve also improved a lot on the software front, but some other, smaller companies have real issues on the software side of things. Don’t get me wrong though, not all of them have such issues, but a number of them just can’t get that part right. Many of us in the tech business actually appreciate stock Android and what it brings to the table, and luckily, many of these smaller companies don’t skin Android all that much. Why is that a good thing? Well, the performance tends to be good for the most part, and the UI also looks really great. So, what’s wrong then? Well… read on. Read more
