comment What specifications indicate the speed of a fast gpu?
Which is better? It depends on what you want to do with them. Find a published benchmark that does similar actions to those of concern. If the (probably small) differences are important, write your own benchmark and do your own tests.

comment Difference between print as grayscale and black and white
It could be monochrome vs orthochrome. That is, grayscale is actual shades of gray while B&W is pure black or pure white, with some halftone screen to get shades of gray. What's your printer's capabilities.

comment In what way does non-“full n-key rollover” hinder fast typists?
You have to be very fast for six keys to be a hindrance. At some number, though a touch typist will see a hindrance. Remember, it's not when you're trying to push multiple keys simultaneously, it's when a finger is pushing a key before the other finger has fully released. If you try 'asdf' repeatedly with less than four key rollover, you will drop characters. Six keys should be fast enough for almost everyone.

comment In Tails, how long should it take to wipe 16gb system memory at shutdown?
I wouldn't worry about powering down interrupting a memory wipe. A few seconds without power will guarantee dynamic rams are wiped.

comment Why are the number of cores in a processor normally even
Actually there are an awful lot of processors with 1 core. Last I checked, 1 was an odd number.
