comment how to shutdown a linux machine, including the root password, in 1 line?
@simon: This will make the password appear in the shell history file, which is not recommended! I suggest you put history -d $((HISTCMD-1)) && before that code, to ensure that line doesn't appear in the history file. So, the final command should be history -d $((HISTCMD-1)) && echo '[PASSWORD]' | sudo -S shutdown now.

comment What media (music and video) players are there?
@scouser73: apparently they still make nightly builds available here, but I'll write a warning on the post.

Since this a community wiki and @user18027 didn't respond, I went ahead and edited it. Feel free to re-edit if you don't agree with my revision.

comment Wanting to start development for Ubuntu (and most Linux distributions in general), which is suitable? Python or Vala?
@dv3500ea: actually, "I wanted a scripting language that was more powerful than Perl, and more object-oriented than Python." Not that I necessarily agree, I don't see how isn't OOP integrated with Python.
