I don't think this is possible but I thought I ask:
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on one laptop and working fine. I have many programs installed that would take a while to reinstall on another machine.
Would it possible for me to copy the contents of the Ubuntu partition and drop it into a new partition on another laptop? I know I would have to do fix the booting issues. But besides that, would it work?
I think this is not possible in Windows. But perhaps linux is different.
