comment Why can't we understand the content of a binary file after compiled?
Disassembling programs is an art. Aside from all the other very real problems mentioned in the other answers, there is nothing to stop a programmer or compiler from embedding data anywhere in the middle of a program. This means that you have to figure out which parts are code to disassemble and which are just data.

comment Installing Virtual Box on Ubuntu 11.10
Having same problem. There are many similar reports on the web. sudo apt-get clean did nothing. This is a new distro install - no prior versions of VBox.

comment Why don't I need to format and partition a CD or DVD before writing files to it?
Joliet is an extension of ISO9660 to allow more fexiblility in file naming. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joliet_%28file_system%29

comment CCleaner, is it just FUD?
Maybe this should be a separate question, but how do you learn what to clean and what to leave? I recently killed my old, dying XP by letting revo uninstaller remove everything it found for several apps I was removing. (I have a better XP in a vm, so it was no loss.)

comment What happens when a file download is cancelled?
@Ismail. Very unlikely. Even a "simple" download requires low level handshaking to coordinate - prevent overruns, etc.. And the client isn't there to do that. Also, servers are always managing bandwidth which they have to pay for, so they're not going to waste an expensive resource.

comment Why does simple plug and play hardware sometimes include drivers?
Windows XP (still alive and well despite MSs intention to end support a couple of years ago - just before netbooks came out) also almost always needs divers too. It's one version earlier than ME, but it actually works.

comment Why is there so much hype about Virtualization these days?
I do everything in Linux on my notebook (not enterprise at all), but I still need the occasional thing in XP or 7. I used to have to go through the serious aggravation of rebooting my dual-boot machine twice - once to get to XP and once to get back. Now, I can have XP running in a vm so it feels just like another application under Linux. It's a huge improvement. And on top of that, all I have to do is copy one (huge) file to completely backup Windows - in a ready-to-run with all my settings intact form. It's brilliant!

comment Manual Duplex printing for Mac (and/or Linux)
@Chris: Sorry for the extremely late reply. Didn't get any notification that there were replies to my post. If you're still out there, send me an email through my duplexpr site. I did update the project 10/29/2010. It has a few less bugs and a few more features. It would be great to see how it works with your printers.

comment Manual Duplex printing for Mac (and/or Linux)
@ Arjan - I added a file a bit like that to the package when I last updated it. I still don't have any options to compensate for printers that do it differently.
