revised Installing Arch Linux, issue with `modprobe efivars`
Revert bogus edit http://superuser.com/revisions/678988/5 clutter — the "alternate" keystrokes suggested only work in X11 while this post clearly addresses a situation the user will be in a regular console.

comment Enable multiple users to install software using homebrew
This is not a recommended solution to the multiple-users problem. It requires users to be able to have root access and/or direct access to run commands as another user which kind of defeats the purpose of having user level privileges in the first place. You can break the model for your own use case given you own the box and both accounts, but it would be ill advised for anybody else to use this and your own system usage would be safer for using proper privilege separations.

comment Are video card resolution specs per-display or overall total when using multiple displays?
up to a total the max speced res of the card on each port or up to a total where the overall rendered area is less than the total max spec?

comment Are video card resolution specs per-display or overall total when using multiple displays?
Your anecdotal evidence is exactly the opposite of what I'm asking. I have one GFX adapter, and in fact a typical way of using the DVI ports on these sorts of cards is in a dual-link configuration.

comment How can I use the RDP client when logged in as Guest
@JackDouglas If all you're doing is RDP, why not setup a Linux image that boots straight to an RDP client? (Caveat: I use RDP all the time, but only for very specialty purposes and don't know if the Linux clients hold up in production.)

You just installed Vista? I'm sorry. 7 really is a lot better. It's at least a proper implementation of what they started to throw together in Vista. I can't say I'm a fan of 8, but Vista is the new Me.
