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.

comment How to run UNetBootin (or similar) on Linux?
Did you try to install it using the package manager (e.g. apt-get install unetbootin) and simply run unetbootin from the shell?

comment How do you stop Google Chrome trying to open RSS feeds instead of showing the xml (which is what I want)
I would love to have it the other way round. Now I see the XML in the browser, but I'd like to add the RSS to my reader.

comment A virusproof (ransomware…) strategy for backup on a NAS?
Do it the other way round. The (possibly infected) clients should not have arbitry write access on the NAS. The backup server (might also run on the NAS) should pull the data from the clients and save it on the NAS.

comment A virusproof (ransomware…) strategy for backup on a NAS?
If you implement an overly complicated solution, as the proposed one, it's not unlikely that you don't backup as often as you should. A backup should be as easy as possible, in the best case fully automatic. A simpler solution would be to export the hard drive and let the backup server simply grab the data via LAN. This way the client (and its malware) does not need to have write access on the backup server.

comment How can I determine if a GPU will play 1080p before purchasing it?
Can you give any reference for “Intel drivers tend to be less optimal”? My experience with NVidia and Intel is just the other way round.
