There used to be an article about Windows 8 here

Unfortunately the Xubuntu 13.04 live DVD ate it.

I was trying to run Thunar with gvfs to open a file over FTP in the Mousepad text editor. The thing crashed and wiped out the data in the file.

So my Windows 8 post is gone.

No big loss, I suppose.

I'm rebuilding it (as a Xubuntu post).

To see if Mousepad is the problem, I installed gEdit in the live environment. You can do things like that with Linux: Try whole systems out with live media and even add software until your memory runs out.

It's fucking awesome.

If you see these words, it worked.
