comment Large recovery partitions
I stand corrected. I've never found them useful before, but just having all the drivers in one place is worth keeping the partition.

comment Large recovery partitions
If you're knowledgeable about computers and your computer is out of warranty, there's no harm in getting rid of the recovery partition and reclaiming the space. You'll never need it.

comment Linux, how to know the current boot disk
grawity is absolutely right, once you solve this you should switch to using UUIDs instead, which prevents this sort of problem.

comment What are the differences between Lotus Symphony and OpenOffice.Org?
Go for LibreOffice over OpenOffice.org, LO is a fork that almost all of the devs went to. I believe that OO is no longer updated.

comment Create a hyperlink to an email address in OpenOffice/LibreOffice Writer
hmm... I just realized I actually used the most recent version of LibreOffice, - I mentally edit OpenOffice into LibreOffice these days. This sounds like a bug. This might not be the solution you're looking for, but if you can you should upgrade to LibreOffice <libreoffice.org/>;. It's a fork of OpenOffice, essentially the same thing but it's being currently updated and OpenOffice isn't.
