Your argument is, "If it's not in use, why disable it?" Mine is, "If it's not in use, why leave it enabled?" I hope you see that this debate can't be resolved, and as such I'm not going to continue...

I haven't touched iTunes since. I think that's completely ridiculous, and quite frankly, harmful for the end user. iTunes didn't do this before, but I went a year or two without it before trying...

Well, all I can say is that I've disabled plenty of services in XP and 7 and have never experienced anything bad, or at the very least unfixable. One of those services is Superfetch, for what it's...

I'm sorry, but that's horrible advice. There are so many extra services that the average, or even advanced, user doesn't need that letting them have any sort of activity is just ridiculous. Do I have...

I'm an Opera shill. IMO the only bad thing about Opera is that it'll hit 250mb of RAM usage periodically.

Last time I had iTunes, I added some music to the library with the intention of converting the bitrate (I like 128kb/s). iTunes complained about those songs not being purchased through the store,...

Please don't insult me. I haven't said a thing about you.

No, Windows does not lack that feature. You can have a single power user, aka., root.[/QUOTE]

Single power user = nothing above initial account.

I know that's configurable. My point is that Linux has a built-in superuser above the initial account. Windows' lack of this feature is what allows apps to run with admin privileges, and thus Windows...

The difference with Linux's "UAC" is that even when you create the first account at installation, you're not root. You're an admin, but admin isn't the highest class. Windows doesn't do this. If I...

Assuming your drive has enough free space, yes, you can use Disk Management to shrink it. When I do this, I format with the Ubuntu CD so I can use ext4.
