comment Network Problems of Ethernet?
@SudiptaChatterjee: I think that is what I said -- VLANs are only availble on higher end switches, and even then VLANs does not provide client isolation -- the client isolation is what you get by default when you are on a public wifi such as in starbucks

Sounds about right -- there could be one more issue -- most wifi networks comes with a "client isolation" option, which when enabled prevent laptops to see each other -- that is a great way of making sure that virus from one private laptop does not spread around the school -- wired network usually does not come with that option unless you have really high end and expensive switches.

comment Is there a folder-only based music player for Linux?
xmms allows you (at least on my linux system) to drop a folder in the play list and it will pick up all tracks in that folder recursively.

comment How can I save energy when using a notebook?
+1 for actually answering the question of discharging/recharging the battery -- the answer is that it uses more power than leaving the charger in when in use

comment How can I save energy when using a notebook?
@Sylverdrag -- seems unreasonable to down vote the answer just because you disagree with the question -- there is nothing wrong with the question either when viewed objectively, however your argument of "is it worth it" is probably very fair (I don't think it is either) but that should not affect the correctness of the Q&A -- however this answer does not answer the specific OP question of discharging/recharging the battery.

comment Will my computer slow down if I install multiple operating systems?
@Icode4food - being alinux man myself, I have not had the pleasure of trying window7's XP mode, so not sure how it works, but you may be right that there is a possibility of people running both Windows7 and XP though a build in VM -- the user would be able to tell the difference from a dual boot in as much as he will be able to use both at the same time, where in dual boots you cannot.
