comment Go back to original version of Firefox in Ubuntu from beta version
Hi Joe. I think you just lose the Ubuntu bookmarks, search engines and themes. I haven't noticed anything else.

comment My computer won't do POST when switched on. Is there a way to determine which component is the culprit without replacement parts?
Cheap power supply units are a false economy. I'd try to borrow a spare machine. Might be cheaper to take to a repair shop, as they will have spare parts to hand.

comment Opensolaris or debian as dev and file server?
Someone else will have to help you there - I'm afraid. I recently listened to the recent FreeBSD podcast of FLOSS Weekly. They were talking up FreeBSD's simplicity and stability.

Have you tried Filezilla? It displays the local and the remote directories at the same time and shows the full number of bytes of all files.

comment I need lightest simplest windows tool like combination of notepad and calender in a fashion of sticky notes?
@Nathaniel It doesn't matter how a respondent gets the information. Many questioners here don't know how to use Google properly, so I try to put the source of my information into my answers - even sometimes a link to the Google query.

comment PDF printer without user intervention
A few years ago, I had a problem where PDFCreator required a reboot after install. I emailed the developer and he fixed it. He also fixed a few other minor bugs I pointed out.

Strange. PDFCreator has always been stable for me. I have tried plenty of unstable, buggy commercial software. Opensource is better - IMHO.
