comment How can I configure Ubuntu/GNOME to accomodate my keyboard/mouse habits from Windows?
This seems like it should be two separate questions.

comment How to install proprietary drivers via Cdrom on a netbook?
Can you provide more specific details in your question? Are you trying to mount the CD for the proprietary drivers or for Ubuntu? What is the maker of the hardware you're trying to install?

comment Change login screen with gksudo -u gdm … does not work
This procedure worked for me except that instead of pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7 to switch to the login screen I needed to press Ctrl+Alt+F8. I don't know the reason for that difference.

What exactly was the mistake? Posting more detail would make this question more useful to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.

The question about the missing /var/cache probably should be asked as a separate question.

comment What are the biggest barriers to walking the MOTU/developer path?
I agree that a link would be helpful. However, given that this question is about why people are not part of some particular thing it would be better to actually explain the jargon in the question.

I know that it is mentioned in the Server Guide section on vmbuilder very close to the end of the article. I'm not aware if it is mentioned elsewhere. help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/jeos-and-vmbuilder.html

comment How do I communicate with the Ubuntu kernel team?
When you are answering your own question it strikes me as a bit odd for part of the answer to be the body of the question.

On my system using the Nvidia proprietary driver the vendor settings program created an xorg.conf file for me when I used it to configure a dual monitor setup.

comment Keyboard/Mouse not recognised during installation

comment Keyboard/Mouse not recognised during installation
@Farseeker Sorry, I misunderstood that detail. I looked on Launchpad and apparently this is a known issue, but unfortunately all the workarounds I found require a spare keyboard (which you don't have). Does it make a difference if you plug the dongle into a different USB port when you reset it?
