comment Should I disable swap file if I have lots of RAM or should I move it to a virtual RAM drive?
Does windows really always preallocate writable private mmapped files? On linux I don't think anyone would do that with huge files - MAP_NORESERVE and MAP_POPULATE are options that give you some control over the reservations and early population of pages. But also allow you to virtually mmap files bigger than physical memory+swap. Sure, you can run into situations where you SIGSEGV on access, but that's a known tradeoff.

comment Xubuntu stuck after login
@Bram My silly mistake, thanks for spotting it. Corrected to "The login screen is delayed correctly.". It's a completely new system, clean account was affected.

comment Backup system for a slow network
I've seen rsnapshot, but I'm a bit worried about it really. I'm quite sure there's something they could improve since 2008, but there doesn't seem to be any new version since then.

comment Ways to have audio output without wires
I'll go with this option probably... it costs just a bit more than some proper wireless audio transceivers and gives me much more features.

comment Ways to have audio output without wires
Maybe I missed it in specs, but I couldn't find any interesting plug computers which have standard jack audio output. Do you know of any? (or if tonido will work with usb soundcard, it seems like the most interesting option to me).
