comment After startup, display reverts to one desktop duplicated on both screens
It is in the menu, sorry. I'm just accustomed to using grun etc, so I tend to include such methods. Thanks for the tip though.

comment Notification of new devices on wireless network?
I concur @TheX, I've come across a few of these in synaptic a few times >.< if only my memory could serve me better. A quick browse through the networking section might get some good results though I'm pretty certain.

This is usually caused by a gnome-settings-daemon plugin, only problem is I fixed this on my own system over a year ago... so I need more information to pinpoint the plugin.

comment Can Mac OS applications run natively?
there is a project underway to port cocoa to windows (and possibly linux, (forgot the name =P)), and there is also GNU Step, which... well, tries, to be compatible at the source level. That's probably the closest you will get to running apps on both (Without using something like GTK+ or QT as a basis).

comment How do I convert music between formats and keep its metadata?
if you open synaptic, and search for sox, you can right click it, click properties, and then in the last tab, you can find packages that depend on it, and see if there are any gui applications that use it. I believe there are some sox-based apps in there (but I cannot confirm right now) (worth a try though).

comment Resolution stuck after playing OpenGL game
O.O? Are you running the latest driver, an old card? something doesn't add up with that one O.o... I've never had the nvidia driver do that to me O.o. When I get the chance I'll take a look at the commandline options and see what other options you can use.

comment What kind of support will Unity provide for Nvidia cards?
@trampster you already have that option since 10.10 in the installer; it's what happens if you choose to install extra software (to improve the experience) or not. If that carries over to 11.04 then obviously you will get the same option.
