comment How to install Wine 1.9 on Ubuntu 15.10?
Miraculously this works although no package with such a name is listed at launchpad.net/~wine/+archive/ubuntu/wine-builds/+packages and the list is much more humble than that of launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+packages And it also needs just a couple of seconds to install (totally incomparable with previous versions) and works perfectly. This makes me wonder why were previous versions so big...

I love pure Wine (and want 100% hand control over it because I am a very-very experienced "power user" of Windows having had been tweaking it since version 3.11) and generally dislike introducing unnecessary extra entities (remember William of Ockham) generally. But thank you for sharing your experience anyway.

@Daniel of course I have, and I have hand-looked into the repository: as I have said I have found some related packages like wine-gecko1.9 there suggesting that wine1.9 was going to follow but weeks have passed and wine1.9 is still not there.

@Daniel are you serious? Have you even read the question? I know how to install wine 1.6, 1.7 and even 1.8.

comment How do I update Python from 3.4.3 to 3.5?
You can try to use this PPA to replace your current python with 3.5 - unfortunately this PPA doesn't include Python 3.5 (there are only obsolete versions) for Wily although there is Python 3.5 for Vivid, Trusty and Precise.

comment Any way to check the clock speed of my processor?
@AmalMurali what about removing the "CPU MHz: " part? And by the way, why does not lscpu | grep 'CPU MHz' | awk '{print $1}' work (for a momentary observation) without the watch -n1 part?
