comment Why is better to upgrade/install a newer release
This is a good answer for general reasons, but what aspects do you think are more (or less) relevant for Ubuntu specifically?

comment Why is better to upgrade/install a newer release
Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but it seems your question is directed toward individual users and not enterprise? It might be illuminating to compare and contrast the needs of both groups.

comment How to run a program without typing the full path?
If someone is trying to avoid typing in the path to his program, is going to the program directory in the file manager, and then doing all the things you describe, going to be better?

comment Triple Boot in my iMac? (OSX Lion, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.10/Debian 6.0.3
I think it's probably because rEFIt will only see four partitions and Lion has an extra recovery partition.

comment netbeans is not starting
I'm not familiar with NetBeans or Java installation on Ubuntu. So someone else will hopefully answer this. But have you tried using the suggestion? What happens if you use the --jdkhome switch when starting NetBeans from the command line?

comment netbeans is not starting
It might be more informative to run NetBeans from the command line. That way you can see the error message(s).

comment Enabling nomodeset in Ubuntu and Arch multiboot
The question seems to be how to set an option for the Arch boot, given that modifying Grub 2 will only modify the Ubuntu boot. Your answer just tells him how to check his version of Grub...which he already knows.

comment Touchpad requires you to press really hard on MacBook 2.1
I'd say ask as a new question, why apt-get is not finding these packages. It's a more general issue you should get fixed.

comment Touchpad requires you to press really hard on MacBook 2.1
Yes definitely do not edit it until you have the driver! That's strange you can't locate the package. Try sudo apt-get update (to refresh your package listings) and see if it works after that.

comment Disable Multitouch Driver and return to default touchpad
I personally use the mtrack driver, which allows two finger drag and drop. It was designed to be configurable , unlike the multitouch X (I think mtrack is actually a derived version of it). You won't be able to configure it using the settings menu, but by editing the conf file. Anyway, here's the link. Anyway, I'm not sure how your recent changes affects the instructions, but you seem to be able to experiment and figure things out :).
