comment Run a process on another network PC as the logged in user
Sounds promising and interesting. Haven't tried it myself so far. @LPChip You're obviously able to pass a username and password, but not sure those are just for authentication purposes.

comment Run a process on another network PC as the logged in user
@Mr.Boy Couldn't think of any other way around that, unless the remote machine regularly looks for some file on a web server for example and executes its contents (like some trojans).

comment Can't install grub on MBR, encountered an error “Unable to install GRUB in /dev/sda”
@DsDude Any error message? Maybe update your initial question with what you've tried now and the results.

@DsDude You'll have to tell Windows' bootloader that there's some other OS there. See the question/answer I linked. It includes step-by-step procedure on how you're able to essentially add GRUB to the Windows bootloader.

comment Always on Remote Desktop Connection
@RowlandShaw I guess it's actually more about simple access and availability rather than "always on". Sounds like a potential security hole though.

comment How can I merge a standard hard drive to a hard drive with the os on it to act as one?
@SebastianU. You've been on the right track. Which path did you try? You can't mount it to the root of the file system. You'll have to pick some folder (like C:\Stuff).

@SebastianU. Ah ok. :) But even then, both my ideas are still valid and should offer you the easiest and most convenient way to link both drives, while still keeping their independence.

comment Windows 8 says I have a touchscreen but in Device Manager it does not show a touch screen
@JohnDemetriou Check the drivers, maybe it has two modes of operation. E.g. my Wacom tablet has two modes, either as a touchscreen device or as a classic touchpad. Both modes will cause Windows to behave differently.

comment USB Flash Drive Capacity Lost
What's the file system? If it's formatted already, that space is most likely reserved for file system stuff, which - depending on the actual file system being used - might have different sizes from a few MB up to half a GB or possibly even more.

comment Can't get PCI-e SSD to be recognized in Linux/Windows
Windows won't show any volumes (i.e. "drives") unless they actually exist on the physical hard drive. Have you checked disk management to see whether it lists the SSD as a (unassigned) storage device?

comment Remote or wireless access to XBMC (android box or RPi) from Win8 PC
While I've setup multiple RPi systems, I'm not 100% proficient with using DropBox on Unix, shell scripting and the like, so I'll leave that for someone else to answer. You could however update your actual question to better reflect that you're looking for a minimal system (either Android or RPi; make it clear that it doesn't have to be Android) and what you'd like it to do. Also there are emulators available for RPi as well. :)

comment Is it necessary to back up Libraries while backing up a drive for formatting?
"As you wrote, they are already included in drive C." Only if you didn't move your stuff earlier. Those files might actually be on D, E, or any other drive.

Downside of course, the RPi won't run Android apps without jumping hoops. :)

There are premade images available for Raspberry Pi. Specifically RASPBMC might be exactly what you're looking for. You just download the image, move it to an SD card and you're done. This is a minimal system that will boot right into XBMC. Behind the scenes its a standard ARM based Unix system, so you can install other things like a torrent client through apt-get and use cronjobs to schedule things.
