comment How to install Dropbox?
Checked it out. The version on DB's site is 1.6.2, but in Ubuntu's repository, it's 1.6.1-1. Still a very simple an nice way. Voted up.

What version of DropBox does this install? I think it's better to use dropbox's repository as it gets updated more frequently.

This will not update chrome as part of the package manager. It's better to add the repository.

comment keyboard shortcut to switch between windows within an application
Needless to say that what I wrote above is a slow way of switching between windows. Don't know why Ubuntu copied this bad behavior from Apple :(

This is nice when you're already in the app of the window. If you're in another window, you need to to use the regular alt+tab and wait on the multiple window app to see the multiple windows of that app.

comment Share a Folder between two Local Users
@Andres - your solution will need more steps, like creating the group and adding several users to the group. I think my suggested solution is the quickest.
