How to use your true type fonts on Linux:

Simply copy them from your C:\WINDOWS\Fonts folder to the ~/.fonts/ folder on your linux system (or to /usr/share/fonts/truetype if you want them available for all users).

Very useful when you need to, for example, transform your Word files to pdf files by through Open Office.

How to clean up your GRUB:

1. Remove old linux kernels (save the two or three latest):
1a. List the ones you have: ls /boot/vmlinuz*
1b. sudo apt-get remove linux-image-<version>-generic, e.g. sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.32-36-generic
1c. (Can also reinstall an old one with apt-get install ...)
2. If needed, re-generate the ram fs images: sudo update-initramfs -u -k all
