comment Difference between “su”, “sudo -s”, “sudo -i”
@Whaaaaaat: well, it's similar, although I'm not sure if there are any differences related to login shell, environment etc.

comment Does using -v (verbose) slow commands down?
The most impact, and probably the only case where it would really matter, is when you run the command on a remote machine via SSH. Verbose logging may easily generate tens of megabytes of traffic which would have to be transmitted from the host to your console. I once experienced a speedup in order of 10x after removing excessive console logging from a script which I ran via SSH.

comment Install CDE on Ubuntu
Are you sure you're talking about CDE (a desktop environment developed in 1990th and not widely used anymore) and not KDE? Your user avatar looks like a default background of one of previous versions of KDE.
