comment Use ImageMagick to compare Images
@RegisteredUser Warning: that code seems to find the RMS error between the images’ histograms, NOT between the images themselves. It's better to do first the difference of the 2 images (if you want in a new image too), and then to do the squared sum of the normalized histogram bins.

comment How do I find out my motherboard model?
It is not needed to run as root a command or to install new software, see below in the answer... or if you prefer an hardware answer it's always possible to follow the @NGRhodes suggestion ;-)

The use of "#" in the root prompt is the default, but you cannot be sure only from that... you can use whoami (all in one word), id -u or echo $EUID (the last two answer 0 if you are root).

comment How to copy data between Virtual machines
@meow ...a bit or a bit too much? :-) When you deal with different operative systems you always have to deal with the two sides of the same problem :(. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd, points are fast and almost simple. The 4th starts to be more complex, but useful in a Linux way (especially the second part). The 5-th point is more for office or specific and/or professional tasks (e.g. I want to run 2 WWW servers on two different virtual machine but I want to share analytic logs maybe on a third machine... so if one machine crashes or is under attack the second will be not...)

comment Changed account setting to not require password on login and now I cannot login
Try to follow this link to start in single user mode and from there set passwd yourusername. Then restart. It can be useful this blog too. As root you can always force a new password for users. Eventually to became root you can try from single user mode: sudo passwd yourusername or sudo /bin/bash. (With the second you have a shell as root). Remember root user can do everything in linux: solve problem or make them more big ;) Let us know...
