comment Cores vs Threads: How many threads should I run on this machine?
"more threads means less frequency ", this statement is very wrong. Even with hyperthreading, a single lone process can make complete use of the processor. Hyperthreading can make use of instruction pipelines and registers that would otherwise be idle to do some executions from different processes/threads in parallel, increasing maximum throughput of a processor in certain cases. Performance gains are very application/configuration. After the P4 there are no documented performance penalties with HT enabled (the P4 gen cores had some issues in certain cases)

comment Is there still no way to delete and rename files in Libre Office?
@empedokles is there a reason you could not use the file manager ? You could even leave it open throughout the day unlike the open dialog.

comment Remove array of entries from another array
For simple datasets, tuples are not noticeably faster at iterating in my experience, but definitely more memory efficient and faster creation time due to being immutable.

You don't even need to install, you can try from LiveCD/USB.

comment For an old machine with 4 GB of RAM, is a 32-bit or 64-bit system faster?
Hanging is generally more due to a bug or configuration issue, changing to 32bit may not fix those issues.

comment What is the best config file for kernel compilation
Have a read of help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile and wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/GitKernelBuild - both mention using oldconfig, but I'm sure someone will be along soon to confirm (I don't have any experience of building kernels).

comment Ubuntu doesn't download files using apt-get update
No its not default, adding PPAs changes your sources list. You have added PPAs that do not have any packages for the version of Ubuntu you have installed.

comment Ubuntu doesn't download files using apt-get update
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is not a problem with apt-get, the location you are trying to download from does not exist. If you look at launchpad.net/~openshot.developers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa there is no trusty (14.04) ppa.
