I'm a web developer working in Boulder, CO with my wife and two cats. I'm a tech and gadget enthusiast who loves open source software. Ubuntu has been my operating system of choice for the past several years years or so (Feisty was the first version of any distro that I used).

comment What is a desktop environment, session and shell?
This doesn't answer your question about desktop environments, but recordMyDesktop works beautifully for me using Ubuntu with the standard Unity shell. It also worked great back in the Gnome 2 days (before Gnome Shell existed).

comment How to stop error messages in terminal
Why do you assume that log output is "not useful"? Why do you run these applications from terminal if you aren't interested in their output?

comment Checking version of nodejs returns nothing
+1, I use NVM to avoid permissions issues (e.g. using sudo for npm install -g), but even without that it's best to stay away from the official repos here.

comment Did I damage the system by shutting down after failed hibernation?
An issue with hibernation is a bug, which should be tracked on Launchpad, however, it sounds like your question is more interesting than that, so I updated the title to match.
