    I'd like to know the same thing. I might understand 2 unix systems depending on which ones you installed but Ubuntu and Lubuntu are basically the same operating system. Lubuntu is designed for low-spec systems but not different from Ubuntu.

    Ubuntu: for bioinformatics, and stuff..
    Lubuntu: I wanna check what the weather today... it's 5 a.m. and I have no freaking time to wait for 10 mins till xp or Ubuntu loads (cause compy sucks ) .. kinda that picture :)

    Of course I have a compy which is new and runs Ubuntu 14.04 and W10 (just recently :oops:) and I can do all these things.. but I guess I am parranoid to have another one... plus it was cool gettin' 3 boot to work.. there's that.. I guess nest time I will try 4 :)

    Wrooong! The correct answer would have been "BECAUSE I CAN." Which you basically said at the end of the second post - but still! :D
    And yeah, it can't hurt to have a spare computer, and some alternative OSs.

    Genetic algorithms are used in Artificial intelligence :p but since you don't know what it is, what are bioinformatics?

    And you might want to look up what Kali Linux is used for ;)

    Ugh I hate making websites. There's always something that doesn't work as it should and I never have an idea why.

    I had to make a website for my studies about 7-8 months ago and I remember my computer refusing to put a border with a simple full black line around an element :(

    And it wouldn't have been a problem if the border didn't appear at all but it did appear, it was just dotted instead of a full line ...
