I am running Ubuntu Karmic Koala on my laptop for the last 5+ months. Initially when I installed ubuntu, I did a dual boot. I was skeptical about my transition to ubuntu so just gave 13ish gigs to my ubuntu box (can't remember the memory I assigned). However, as it stands, I've been loving the transition and have not gone to windows in last 5 months.
Now the problem is that I have only some Megs of HD space left and I think because of this, my ubuntu box is running extremely slow. Even minimizing and maximizing windows takes time, if I have lot of tabs open on chrome then things tend to slow down ..etc..etc
What is the best way for me to just increase the HD space assigned to my ubuntu partition or completely wipe down the windows partition and let current ubuntu partition take over the whole HD. At the same time, I do not want to lose any of the settings or work on my current ubuntu partition.
What is the best way to get through this? Any tutorials I should follow?
