comment Is it possible to place windows with keyboard shortcuts in Gnome-Shell?
Not in my case, though. Unity crashes all the time when you modify something in ccsm, that is the fact. gconf-editor works fine here, even when I modify may keys at once (and I do modify many when reinstall the system).

comment Dual Monitor Window Management
By the way, I am using both unity and gnome-shell now, and I really like how gnome-shell works with the two monitors. In fact, you can even set it up so that the second monitor has only one workspace, and it does not change when you switch the workspace on the primary monitor.

Wow, this answers my question quite well... even though the answer is not that positive. But I am glad to see that people at Canonical do take it so seriously. Hope they will be able to acomplish this before 12.04 is released.

comment Applications that can be installed and/or run by a non-admin user
Thanks, Oli. May be I should have been more clear about possible use cases. On my computer I have one su (weekly updates etc.) and other regular users. Ideally, those users should be able to install whatever they want locally in their home directories. From your answer to the third part of my question I conclude that there is no real risk of installing programs this way (whatever they want). But, of course, they can still ruin their own local files or programs (there is no way to protect from this). However, I do not see any clear way to give them some general instructions on how to do this.

comment Does Microsoft Office 2010 still have incompatibility issues with LibreOffice
Word's initial goal was to give people WYSIWYG text editor for articles, papers etc.: for a sequence of formatted objects. BTW, WYSIWYG doesn't imply that it looks the same on any computer. MS PowerPoint was designed with different purpose: for presentations it is more important to have the look the same on any computer. So, I agree, if there are such issues with PP and Impress, then yes, it is a problem. And this is why I mentioned .pdf formats. I personally consider .ppt as a source file, and .pdf as the compiled product, the one you show to others. (It is a core logic of TeX.)
