comment Are there any Spreadsheet apps that are as easy and powerful to use as Vim?
I don't quite get what you're after. Customizable keyboard shortcuts or different modes?

What about using your favourite editor (vim, emacs, …) and a custom macro?

comment How to uncompress a 9GB file in Windows FAT32
True. Instead of split you could pipe it through ffmpeg. But that's not within the scope of this question. This answer should show an alternative way which does not involve resorting to NTFS. The OP is responsible for doing something useful with the split files.

comment security of lubuntu VM
Since you already use a VM it's easy to create a snapshot and start from this snapshot every time. Even if VM is compromised, it lasts only for that session. That way you cannot avoid malware, but you can easily get rid of it (unless the malware already spread to the other computers).

“Does it shorten?” Of course! All writes shorten the life. The question is if it matters.

comment git setup for local development
I don't use Windows. But I hardly believe that the git syntax changes on Windows. You can try using ssh://<user>@<machine>:22:~/somerepo. Do you have shell access?

comment Why 100MB ext2 boot partition recommended for linux?
It depends, exactly. If you want to save space and don't need much the initramfs has a few MiB. If you are like me and don't care about space and build the initramfs with all bells and whistles then you end up with 10 - 20 MiB. There's one exception: When you do a build with debugging symbols you'll easily surpass 100 MiB. But that was not the ordinary user scenario I was describing in my anser. A developer knows how much space is necessary and how to partition the hard drive.

What is faster? The random access time, average read throughput, maximal write throughput, boot time? How much faster?

comment Windows 8 + Linux Dual Boot under UEFI BIOS
You don't need grub when you have UEFI. UEFI is capable of selecting the OS loader on its own. Information about how to set up Debian on UEFI

comment Why 100MB ext2 boot partition recommended for linux?
How comes your kernels are that huge? My kernels are all around 4.5MiB + 11MiB initramfs. That means in 100MiB you can store six kernels including initramfs. I don't see any reason to keep more than one or at most two old kernels on the disk. If you really need to switch to a very old kernel, restore it from the backup.
