well it may not be very advanced but I'm still noobing around. I have learnt about the flexibility of Linux and for my desktop environment i have settled on a hybrid xfce/gnome2 with kwin window manager.

Code:
cd `pwd | sed -e 's/{oldpathlement}/{newpathelement}/g' [-e's/{oldpathlement}/{newpathelement}/g' ...]`
especially useful when working on a server that hosts websites due to the similar but rather deep nature of the paths involved.

I resized my Windows XP NTFS partitions by using Ubuntu's disk manager (GParted?) from the Live CD.
Later, M$ stole this idea, and now it's built-in their newer products.

hello kuser. just wanted to let you know. I've used Microsoft's partition editor on windows 7 and it is inferier to gparted. it limits the amount you can shrink the windows partition. it will also refuse to remove some of windows hidden partitions.
