comment RDP Equivalent for Ubuntu 10.10
It is definitely more network friendly. Its not sending pictures like VNC and its not raw x protocol messages. Great for accessing through VPN's.

comment Which Linux distribution is best out of the box for battery life on netbooks?
Check out Jupiter or Granola. They're a couple of apps that should help extend the battery life. They're basically ondemand cpu clock controllers.

comment Does it take longer to download a zipped file than an unzipped file?
You should consider download rate, not time. In both cases, the rate is the same...in the end you downloaded a limited number of bytes in a given amount of time. Like Toby hints at, downloading a compressed files gets you more data uncompressed in the end, which effectively increases your uncompressed download rate.

Sounds like your partitions were not set up correctly. You may need to sudo fdisk -l to see the partition data.

comment How do I remove files downloaded to a directory that are now mixed in with other files without deleting the other in Linux
Careful here though...what if your downloaded files has a filename or directory name of the subdirectory you put your second copy in? Poof the newly downloaded files disappear too. Using -rf can be dangerous. The original answer didn't use it though, which is safe.

comment how to execute command after current running command in bash?
Consider using && and || instead of ;. && and || check the return value of the previous command before executing the next command...just in case wget fails, you may not want to shutdown.
