comment Can I update from 13.10 to 14.04 safely?
How do you assume you can upgrade safely to a development version? If you need your data, stick to a stable version.

comment Steam opengl glx context is not using direct rendering
I just yesterday read somewhere that a user reported on his system software rendering was used, and the advice was to add that user to the video group. He reported back that this fixed the issue for him . I don't know if yours is the same problem, but probably worth a try. (Sorry, but I really don't remember where I read that.)

comment High cpu use from init and yes [Ubuntu 12.04]
Have you tried to find out where yes is being started from? It seems more than strange to have it constantly running. It looks like a script is going wild.

comment The eclipse application icon is huge in Unity's dash
Oh. I first saw this after upgrading to 12.10 and eclipse Juno and thought perhaps it was because of the new eclipse version. I will check of the problem still persists (after all the updates that came in the meantime). If it does, I will file a bug against Ubuntu 12.10.

comment control keys produce ascii output in Vi insert mode
Now that's a revelation. I had the same problem, and after reading this answer, I checked whether on my system it's vi or vim by starting vi with no filename given. The welcome screen clearly stated "vi improved". I then found out that this is actually from the package "vim-tiny". After installing vim everything works as expected. However I don't understand how Ubuntu cannot provide a properly working version of vim in the default install. :-(
