comment How do I show date next to time in the panel with gnome-shell?
Gnome Tweak is indeed a necessity for making 11.10 usable. Also, the date setting is under Shell->Show date in clock.

comment Force Alt + Tab switcher to display applications from active workspace
It's disappointing that in order to fix Alt+Tab I have to install Unity and Compiz, two things I have no need for, slow down my system considerably, and which I DO NOT want to install.

comment Since I've moved to the GNOME Shell, is it safe to remove compiz?
If I do this, it tries to remove ubuntu-desktop... Isn't that, well, my desktop?

comment How can I securely erase a hard drive?
Not saying this is the strongest "proof" but the Gutmann method exists for a reason. As far as I know, modern hard drives are still theoretically susceptible to having their data recovered if it's been overwritten by zeros. Whether or not that still holds, hopefully you can admit it's not going to hurt by overwriting using /dev/random or a specific algorithm for that purpose.

comment Are there any known vulnerabilities to Ubuntu's full disk encryption feature?
Interesting. I should note that I only encrypt disks used for backups. Not the primary bootable disks used in my machines.
