comment Are there tools to help reduce Excel spreadsheet file sizes?
Depending on the complexity, you can export to tab or comma separated value type and look at it in a text editor. Otherwise you can try Gnumeric, open/libre/k-office etc... I prefer mtcelledit for simple tasks.

comment Launched application does not stay on the same desktop
It depends on your window manager, you can set up groups to launch certain apps on certain pre-defined desktops. Another way is to use xnest or xephyr to run a second nested X server on 1+ of your desktops Then launch it with DISPLAY=:1 command args ... and use the -display arg if the command has one, but usually it is enough to export DISPLAY. Also if you have multiple monitors (Xinerama displays) you can use :0.0 or :0.1. Can you give a bit more detaill?

comment uTorrent causes DNS to stop working occasionally
I have had similar issues that resolve by adding a question mark at the end of the url... And redirecting google adware sites to 127.0.0.1 in my etc/hosts ... Speaking of etc/hosts , you can add the actual ip address for the root domains of sites you visit often.

comment Panning screen on eeePc 701 with Ubuntu and Xfce
Maybe I'm mistaken, but doesn't the desktop size need to be larger than the screen resolution for panning to make sense. Did you want virtual desktops instead?
