Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

they basically are destined not to forget sthg. I do not see really the difference
Reminder- "Remember to kill the mother in law"
Note- can also be something you write to someone else. "Cascade rang earlier, and is looking for the chainsaw. Can you please ring him and tell him where it is". Sometimes that is also counted as a memo.
Memo can mean a few things. It can mean 'summarizing the items of an agreement'- "In section 2, clause 15 of the contract it allows me to kill my mother-in-law if it doesnt rain for a month".
I've often seen this type of phrases (for example when commenting a picture on flickr):
I love the mood to this picture
Coming from a Spanish speaking background the next phrase would sound more natural to me in this context:
I love the mood in this picture
So, my question is, is any of these phrases better than the other in this context, or do they convey different meanings? What I understand is that the person who says it loves the mood the picture in question has.
"I love the mood in this picture" makes sense and indicates the idea you proposed, ie. the person who says it loves the mood the picture in question suggests or implies.
The other phrase, "I love the mood to this picture", while such a construct can sometimes be heard and the speaker generally means the same and the previous phrase, it is grammatically awkward at best and improper at worst.
Thanks for the clarification, NyteOwl. I've seen the first type of phrase written so commonly on the net, that I started to think it was the right way to say it (though as you say, it sounds really awkward).
