comment Korean text display issue
@Ashwin: Start->Control Panel->Display->Appearance You'll see a window which lets you customize the current theme including colours and fonts. Maybe try resetting the theme if you've made any changes to it or installed any custom themes.

comment CentOS - difference between ssh -X and startx, and starting a gui
@hatorade: Yeah, XDM is one of the preferred approach for a full desktop, and ssh -X would be preferred for running individual apps. You could use a full-screen X11 window (see the link in the answer) and run a full desktop environment there. It might work over ssh -X. But the default mode for Apple's X11 is to manage the windows as if they are local apps and this does conflict with parts of the gnome or KDE desktop.

comment CentOS - difference between ssh -X and startx, and starting a gui
@hatorade: X programs (technically called clients) such as firefox require a display, technically called a server. startx starts the server, or display, locally on the physical video card. ssh -X tells the remote computer that you have a display on your local system, and instructs programs running remotely to use it. You always have an X server if you are displaying an X client program.

comment LG R500 Notebook crashing
I bought a notebook cooler and that, combined with the thermal paste change, seems to have totally fixed the problem.

comment Single Monitor act exactly like dual monitor?
What are you trying to solve? It sounds like you are trying to fool Windows. There might be a better way.

+1 for solving the real problem instead of introducing a hack.
