    RE: Curious chromebook user
    One can't really install a full Linux distribution in place of Chrome OS. The ChromeOS firmware (BIOS) restricts the user to using the Linux kernel that is part of Chrome OS. It is possible to run some Linux distros on top of Chrome OS. Ubuntu, for example, can be run in a chroot environment using something called Crouton. You can read about it at this link: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/install-linux-chromebook/ If it was me, I would use a Chromebook with the ChromeOS it came with. Everyday Google announces more features and apps that can be used with ChromeOS, so, have a good look at the app store and see if it suits your needs.

    RE: Unable to connect Wireless
    In NetworkManager, checking "Connect Automatically" and "System Connection" starts my ethernet and wireless connections at boot.

    RE: notebook freeze when in desktop mode
    You need to explain more. When and what exactly were you doing when the desktop froze? What video card are you using and how much memory does your laptop have. It's hard diagnosing a problem when the only clue we have is "the OS is always freeze". Also searching the end of /var/log/messages might give you a clue as to what's failing.

    RE: Steam for Ubuntu
    I really like what Valve is doing with Steam. I'm really curious to see what this turns into. http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/

    RE: convert video files
    ffmpeg is the program that you need. If your not comfortable with the command line, WinFF is said to work well, though, I've never used it. It is said that "audacious" and "audacity" also use the ffmpeg backend.
