I had something here once. It was about work. Now I gratefully work at Google. It's nice. If only more people I referred got hired too.

comment Can and should UDF be used as a hard drive format?
@user29020 Support costs (what if it's a bit buggy)? Legal restrictions? Free under GNU GPL License means that it can only be added to existing source / binaries which are in turn also available under the GPL. (LGPL would allow it to be used as a library by other non-GPL code). Given that apple's code is largely proprietary and otherwise under the APSL which is not a GPL compatible license, that is a restriction they must abide by. gnu.org/philosophy/apsl.html

@DanMan Dan seems to have found someone who solved that issue and provides a script for formatting a whole disk with UDF for Linux, Mac and Windows 7, as well as read-only in Win XP.

comment Bash script to add/remove desktop launchers to Unity launcher?
While this added it in the um... launcher thingy (Dash home) it did not pin it, even with unity --replace. However I could easily pin it after this by dragging it from the dash to the sidebar.

revised Will the latest versions of Firefox be brought into old Ubuntu releases?
Seriously? I think it was a poorly worded question to start.

Thanks this answers the how; I would still be interested in finding out if it works well enough with the above scenario.
