comment Raise all grouped windows on Windows 7 taskbar
Incorrect. You can right-click on a program which has multiple windows open and get the same menu. It will then only apply that action to those windows. If you click on an empty section of the taskbar, it will apply the action to all your open windows.

comment Are processes launched by elevated processes themselves elevated?
Read his full answer, it's highly relevant to the OP. He is specifically concerned about a web browser inheriting elevated status, which as jrista explains, it probably won't be inherited for a browser.

comment Windows similar to *nix “at” command
Not really. If you want simplicity, you're stuck with at. If you want complexity, you're stuck with schedtasks. It's unfortunate, but that's the case. There may be a third party tool out there to make it easier, or you could just write a batch script to do it.

comment Install Firefox 4 Beta alongside Firefox 3.6?
Using firefox portable might be your issue. I'm not sure if it has the same command line parameters as regular firefox. Try it with a regular local installation of each browser.

Are you sure you're typing firefox.exe -no-remote, not firefox.exe no-remote? You need to have the first dash. Also make sure you're using the path to the right installation and not getting those confused. Check those and it ought to work.

comment looking for a nice PCI express x1 or x16 video card with hdmi out for debian lenny
I have also heard it said that Nvidia's linux drivers are superior to ATI's. You might be better off with an Nvidia card. However, in recent years it sounds like they've improved their support for Linux. And very good point about the power draw. If you can afford it, get a better PSU - it will still use only as much power as it needs.

See the information I added about profiles. Using that with no-remote should let you choose multiple profiles and multiple sessions at once.

comment Windows 7 license keys
It is a bummer, I agree. One way to get Windows 7 cheaper - if you are a student, check out the Ultimate Steal (google it), and a lot of companies which have software agreements with Microsoft can sell their employees Windows for a very discounted price. Check into those.

comment Windows 7 license keys
The difference is that Microsoft isn't charging you the full amount for your OEM license. A retail Windows 7 Professional license is $260, regular folk like us can buy an OEM license for $140. Big OEMs pay a small fraction of that, though the exact amount isn't publicly disclosed. Under Microsoft's EULA, you can ask reject the EULA and demand a refund from the OEM, and you then have to destroy all copies of media they sent you. People rarely exercise this right, and it's really a pain in the neck - the OEMs make it hard to do on purpose.
