comment VNC into an Ubuntu machine from a Mac?
actually with x11vnc you can connect to an existing X11 connection, that is, providing you also login... you have to configure your login screen to provide it, but it works

comment Alternative to Abiword, LibreOffice or Open Office under Linux
Yes, I actually use LaTex and Lyx a lot, but they are too document-production-oriented (I mean, for printing or publishing). That means it's really not what we were looking for.

comment How to automatically execute a shell script when logging into Ubuntu
.bash_profile, .profile and .bashrc (Which is the one actually used by ubuntu) are loaded each time you open a bash terminal. So actually I'm not sure they will be loaded if you just login into GDM.

comment How to restore all minimized windows in Windows 7
@CajunLuke : Actually, Win+M minimizes all windows and Win+Shift+M restores all minimized windows. Been trying and saw sometimes it dows not work as expected. Sometimes it restores only some windows, sometimes nothing at all. Try this : Open more windows, tile them, Win-M and later Win-shift-M.
