comment How do I check whether I am using KDE or Gnome?
Hmm, what exactly are we looking for in the output? I've got "gnome-keyring-d", "xfce4-volumed" and "kdeinit4". Some of this stuff will have been installed as dependencies. I'm not sure which of these is my main desktop environment.

comment best Graphical disk space explorer utility for Ubuntu?
Not to be too pedantic but disk space and file usage can be quite different. Baobab, one of the answers, shows files under the root '/' and has no concept of multiple disks or free space. Something like gparted is good at showing overall disk stats but is useless for lower level detail. WinDirStat, and I assume KDirStat, show both disk based and file based information.

comment Sublime Text 3 close unexpectedly
I've had weird crashes with ST3 also. It doesn't help that there's so few topics about crash identification. My only advice is to reinstall ST3, update other system packages and try the other install methods (non-deb package, 32 vs. 64bit).

comment Why is Skype memory usage so high?
This isn't a very useful answer for people who arrive here from search engines (see my comment to main question). If this is the correct answer the question sounds too localised. When the question is broadened this answer becomes useless.

comment Why is Skype memory usage so high?
I have the same question, but mine is soaring above 550mb (private working set), with 1.1gb commit size. Don't really want to make a new question, however the current best answer is useless to me.

comment How do I make a batch file wait / sleep for some seconds?
@DanyKhalife Unless you want to run the process in the background. "ERROR: Input redirection is not supported, exiting the process immediately."

comment What's a good macro recorder for Windows?
I'm downvoting this for the same reason mentioned above. I use AHK a lot (and love it!), however it's not good for very simple one time use macros. Throw away macros should take seconds to make while AHK requires minutes.

comment Remove a Global Hotkey
@Karan I need to use the hotkey in other apps as a local hotkey. This is my main reason for wanting to disable the global version.

comment Why is a .ISO called a .ISO?
This has really been bugging me: It's not a .ISO it's an .ISO! Right?

comment Notification area Windows 7: The missing option?
Problem with this is quite a lot of programs have useful quick access settings by right clicking the icon without having to launch the main window which can be slow. In my case (different from op) I want to keep the icon so I can use quick-access-menu. I have also found some applications which don't have a main window, only working through the icon! (bad design by the app and OS imho)
