comment Linux doesn't boot on my Windows 7 laptop, even if successfully installed
It possible that the Linux versions are trying to start the X Windows GUI and it's not working. When it stops, try pressing ALT-F1 and seeing if you get a text screen with a prompt.

comment Why does Windows sometimes “copy to clipboard” when I press the delete key?
I remember first learning about Shift+Del, Shift+Ins when I was using a Microsoft, DOS based, full screen editor to develop code in the early 1990s. Back then, Ctrl+C was for interrupting a program (and still is in *nix land), and Windows 3.0 was the newest shiny toy M$ was offering.

comment How does emacs resume cursor position when we switch back to a buffer?
Are you, perhaps, clicking in the buffer to return to it? If so, you just told emacs where you want the cursor.

comment Why must a computer have a BIOS?
Silly me, I used to write software for embedded computers that had no BIOS or OS, just application code. Or are we not talking about all computers, just the ones most people think about?
