comment How can I boot Ubuntu again after installing Windows 8 Developer Preview?
@Luc1245 Grub is a nice bootloader that accepts that you might have multiple OSs. Window's bootloader is not so nice. You do have to reinstate Grub. It's not even touching the windows install, or the windows bootloader, just putting itself back as the first logical partition run.

No, but an entirely idle linux will still write to that file, whatever your file system.

comment Mac OS X Lion: What are invalid characters for a file name?
APIs as in Carbon or Cocoa? I assume Terminal is under such restrictions, but what about scripts run by other programs, such as launchd?

comment Difference between Mac and Windows Host for XP Guest in VirtualBox
Are the two VM Xp installs the same? Virtualbox warned me about something to do with the bit-ness of Windows on Mac. Windows on Windows only lets you go one step down, so a 64 XP can use wow to run 32bit, and a 32bit XP can use wow to run a 16bit program

comment Can I buy an ECC SDRAM, or do I have to buy non-ECC SDRAM?
If you aren't entirely replacing all RAM, you may get issues because they are different in age/manufacturer, even if similar in every other way

comment Does more RAM on Mac really improve performance?
Do you mean it used up the RAM without any noticeable change, such as faster fps? It's likely it was already fast enough animations.
