comment Moving Windows from left to right screen in Unity
@DrSAR I had uninstalled ccsm due to my problems in 78237. I've tried it again and indeed the launcher disappeared. Updated answer. To get the launcher back, remove ~/.config/compiz-1

comment Should I use btrfs or Ext4 for my SSD?
The articles are Sep 2011, Aug 9 2010 and May 29 2009 respectively. Focusing on the latest because I assume btrfs would be evolving over the last 2 years. The btrfs+LZO chart on page 4 is amazing for sequential read and write performance, but btrfs does badly with random writes so its definitely no to btrfs for DBs and VM images. I guess with root partition the load is mostly random reads, for which its not much better than ext4.
