The Nvidia Linux team released the Nvidia driver 190.42 RC a week ago, which were very stable and have now been officially released on Nvidia’s website.
The NVIDIA 190.42 driver is the first official release in the 190.xx Linux driver series. It has been in beta for months with many updates and releases.
Ubuntu Tweak is a freeware that allows you to easily tweak your Ubuntu by letting you configure hidden settings and you can customize your desktop environment like showing or hiding Computer, Home, Trash or Networks icons, change power or secuity settings on the fly or change the splash screen. You can also use it to quickly adjust settings for GNOME Panel and some more advanced security settings.
There are several ways to install Ubuntu on your system, and those methods have proved quite handy. For instance, if you don’t have a CD/DVD-ROM, you can use your USB stick to install or run Ubuntu. Methods for installing Ubuntu through hard disk or a computer on another network are also available. But the best method I like is to use a bootable live Ubuntu USB stick.
This is a new method and is being adopted and used by many, since it’s more easier, faster and portable way of installing Ubuntu on a computer. You only need a 1GB USB stick and Ubuntu already installed on a computer.
