I got home last night and started to get a message that my data drive is out of space. A quick look and my 750GB drive is currently using 99.98% of space. I find this weird since the last time I checked I had over 600GB free. I look through all the files and nothing is adding up to 600GB until I check the hidden logfiles. There lurking in the home folder is a 600GB logfile. A couple clicks later the file has been deleted and I’m restarting my machine. Login screen comes up and I type in my password and nothing happens. I can’t log in, I broke Ubuntu again.
I have had it. I don’t really have the time to support a system like this and I don’t really want to. I’m sure that with time and training I could have this system up and running just like I want it, but not at this point in time.
I am done with Ubuntu, for now. I am moving on, end of line.
I would like to try out ChromeOS (http://chromeos.hexxeh.net/) but the USB drive I have today is not big enough to make a bootable install drive. Tonight I start a Windows 7 install. It’s not ideal, its not fast, but its easy and solid.
