comment Batch-convert Word-documents to PDF's
If I highlight more than 15 files in Windows the 'Print' option disappears from the right-click context menu. I've just tried the drag n drop method, but 94 files might just be too much for it...

comment Installing software from tar.gz on Linux (Ubuntu) - where to start and where does it end up?
Agreed, try the repositories first, but one day (and always sooner then you think) you'll reach the point of 'you need the latest development version of XXX to use YYY'. The days of installing an entire system from source are not yet gone :)
