comment Does laptop brightness change on battery (like Windows)?
Thanks - looks like I'll try getting a "daylight" laptop, test it out on Windows, then Ubuntu, and post the results here. Could be a while though...

I know brightness is customisable. On Windows, is "customisable" too, but "full" brightness is lower when you unplug. In Windows, it's not overridable from what I've read. So I need to know if it's hardware, OS, or somewhere in between (ACPI etc)

comment What should I do when Ubuntu freezes?
sudo service lightdm restart: Not awesome - will kill all gui processes in Ubuntu 13.04 at least - for me that included running Virtual Machines etc :(

comment NX Client (win) fonts not rendering after Ubuntu Upgrade
Not working for me - at the moment I'm using putty and Xming to get around the issue - Xming starts up when I try OpenNX. Also, I prefer not having a desktop, and OpenNX does not seem to support the "custom" unix view.
