comment “Stable” operating system - what does it mean exactly?
For precise definition ( if you trust in wikimedia ) here's what stable means: en.wiktionary.org/wiki/stable#Etymology_2 Hence an "stable" operating system would be one that is "relatively unchanging, permanent; firmly fixed or established, not easily to be moved, changed, unbalanced, destroyed or altered in value." For instance, if a wild program runs in it, that program should not shutdown the whole OS ( as happened very frequently with Windows OS prior the XP version )

comment “Stable” operating system - what does it mean exactly?
I think you're confusing the term with development stages. In the OP context it means the whole OS ( linux , any version ) compared with OTHER OS ( Did you ever used Windows ME? ) :)

Fortunately you're young enough and never had to use anything below Windows XP. Then you'd understand what an instable operating system is and by contrast what an stable OS is. Google for BSOD

@mhambra, in that case, the OP should write another B.exe that just logs the passed arguments.

comment Mac terminals slow?
That's very strange in mine run as fast as strolling anything else. Mac OSX is UNIX at the core, so no "porting" or anything. Many of the utilities come directly from some UNIX branch, some other are taken from gnu.

comment Alternative terminal emulators for OS X
Watching... Nahh, is not that bad to install, but, this is Mac, I mean, I should download the .dmg double click, drag&drop to the Apps folder ( which btw should be a link right there ) I can do any number of sudo apt-get install whatever in linux anytime :P But in OSX feels like I'm doing too much. ;) ( +1 btw )

I wonder how does your terminal look like. I have change the background for a transparent one and works for me. Is not spectacular, but I don't want to be disturbed either: img237.imageshack.us/img237/4301/capturadepantalla201005j.png

comment Alternative terminal emulators for OS X
Could you guy paste images and/or videos of Visor? I saw a demo long time ago, but I have "always" deferred from installing it, because it is not the classic "Drag into Apps folder" mechanism.

comment Upgrading to Firefox 3.6 in ubuntu 9.04
I didn't found that page :-/ I followed the "Official instructions" but got stuck on Step 6: Now copy the second line from the apt sources.list entries section of the PPA overview page and paste it in just as you did in steps 4 and 5. WHAT sources.list entries?
