comment How can one shutdown a PC using the keyboard?
I can't think of a scenario where I would miss that dialog, as I have ctrl+alt+backspace to logout and the session menu item to restart.

I don't even see that shutdown dialog, probably because I've disabled it in dconf-editor, so it's definitely the quickest way available for me.

"Need to be root" for this command, which is not a very quick way ;-)

comment How do I get Adobe Reader to work in Ubuntu 14.04?
You can also try this under WINE: tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer I find it much better (although much lighter) than Acrobat Reader with many more features especially in terms of annotating PDF files.

comment How to suppress the Log Out confirmation dialog?
Thanks. I use Ubuntu 14.10 with Unity 7.3.1. There's no such option in Compiz Unity Settings. But it's possible to log out bypassing that odd dialog merely by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Back. And this seems the best alternative to using the current Log Out menu item at the moment.

Because Unity is based on Gnome, I thought it should work. Perhaps we should wait until developers care to add such an option to apps > indicator-session then???

comment How is ubuntu better than windows?
IMHO, this question is NOT OPINION-BASED and must NOT BE CLOSED; instead it should be answered in away that many people can see the MANY ADVANTAGES of using Ubuntu/Linux over Windows as nicely done here: whylinuxisbetter.net I would just like to add that Ubuntu/Linux ALSO provides far more flexibility to customize NOT JUST THE DESKTOP (Appearance) but most software (e.g. Nautilus Scripts) to make your daily tasks much easier and faster.
