comment My PC is not a phone - how do I remove the swipey pre-log in screen from Gnome 3?
@nemec: Ctrl+Alt+Del is a security feature (Secure Attention Key). The rationale is that it cannot be hooked by applications, so it thwarts malware impersonating the login screen/task manager.

comment How can I view more of my history in Screen on Linux?
Just Ctrl-a is screen's escape. The whole key sequence to enter scrollback mode would be Ctrl-a [, as opyate says. Ctrl-a ESC also works for me, I don't remember which one is standard / commonly used.

comment “Stable” operating system - what does it mean exactly?
@Ignacio: there's a saying, I think from TDD people, that goes something like: "code that hasn't been tested is wrong".

comment Linux: multiple network connections - 3G/4G / Wifi / LAN / etc; how can i set a preferred network connection to use?
metric is meant to be used for multipath routing IIRC, which worked on 2.2 and 2.4 with a patch by Julian Anastasov IIRC.
