Excellent Ubuntu tutorials
 
I stumbled on to this site. Really clear tutorials for some enhancements etc that one can make to Ubuntu.
Clear instructions and helpful screenshots:

Thanks for this. As a relative newcomer to Ubuntu myself, Just what I needed to go with Jojo's tips on the main site :)

Yes, also very long :) I haven't found time to get to the last page yet although there do appear to be some duplications.

Noted the same. It currently has about 8 pages to go through. Some are guides for using Ubuntu, some are more related to installation of useful free apps.

Could be better if it has an index table in a single page to show all titles without the need to browse through all pages to get them. Or have I missed out something? Nevertheless it's resourceful for reference.

I have installed applications that never worked on my Simply Mepis platform. For instance I can now use TeamViewer from Ubuntu. This allows me to help others I know directly from their system. It also allows me to check up on my rascally 12 year old son :D

Just a question. Which firewall would anyone suggest "gufw" or "firestarter"? Same question for AV's. Avast or BitDefender. With Avast it seems to be a on demand scanner only . With BitDefender, it has a drop zone, but again its appears to be a on demand scanner.
I know linux is inherently safe. However its not 100% immune either.

Any thoughts on the matter?

Firestarter has more "action" in that you can see the logs in real time instead of having to delve into the system files but mostly where I read folks recommend gufw because unlike Firestarter it is still supported.

I adore the BitDefender GUI which is a revelation considering what you normally get with Linux but it only has value if you think you might be passing on bad stuff to Windows users. As of course this could still be you via a dual boot or shared network then in this context it is useful :)
