comment sudo access for desktop actions in Gnome/KDE?
On desktop Linux all the programs that need root privileges (package manager, login settings, printer setup and so on) will ask for the password when required. If you're trying to explain to your mum how to edit system files with sudo commands you're doing something wrong and she'll likely mess up her system, similar to if you tried to have her edit the Registry on windows

comment Backup services that allow remote rsync
Thanks, however the problem with all of these is price. I currently pay $10/month for plenty of bandwidth and space (so far as they don't close my acct.). rsync.net and the VPS solutions I looked at are well over that for the bare minimum of storage I need. bqbackup is a bit more reasonable. Still the Amazon/Rackspace cloud related stuff seems a lot cheaper, has anyone had good experiences with that and Linux+rsync?
