comment When would you use apt-get remove over apt-get autoremove?
I can see that unused libraries can be an attack vector, but it seems to be a very minor issue to me, relative to the significant pain of improper removal (which I've seen happen more than once). Thank you for the info about usage however... I have actually been describing autoremove improperly (I don't use it myself, so didn't realize), thank you for the correction.

comment When would you use apt-get remove over apt-get autoremove?
That is absolutely correct @PeanutsMonkey. Autoremove will also remove other packages that the named package depended on, if they are no longer required by anything and were not installed separately on purpose.

So Metro IE operates on a 'always remember the previously opened tabs' paradigm?

comment How to change the queue priority in BitTorrent?
I'm actually pretty sure that they are not identical, not even close. There is a great variation in Bittorrent client features. But I could be wrong, I have not used the default Bittorrent client in several years; perhaps they aimed for feature parity with uTorrent.

comment Force Windows 8 Metro apps to run lower resolutions below 1024x768?
Microsoft stated very clearly that Microsoft guarantees a minimum resolution for Metro apps. They won't run below that resolution because they simply can't; they aren't designed for it. If there is a workaround, I would not be surprised if many/most Metro apps break.

comment How do I access the separate Internet Options for IE64 and IE32?
Thank you very much, this worked perfectly. I still think there must be a way to open a particular 'Internet Options' dialog, but this workaround was quite sufficient for to help the customer.

comment How to differentiate SSD hard disk and a SATA hard disk based on physical appearance?
I would suspect that you can guesstimate based on weight, but I haven't handled any 2.5" non-SSD drives in a long time, so I'm not sure.

comment How can I permanently append an entry into the system's PATH variable, via command line?
@lszi, you should answer your own question. A good answer to a good question are both valuable, even when you answer it yourself.
