comment What is the difference between “Redirection” and “Pipe”?
@Sridhar-Sarnobat no, the tee command does something different. tee writes output to both the screen (stdout) and the file. Redirect does only the file.

comment Is a reboot the only way to get back into the GUI after pressing “CTRL+ALT+F12”?
Hmm - I would assume it would work there, although I don't know for sure. What happens when you hit CtrlAltF1? Does it bring up a mostly black screen with a login prompt?

comment Keep windows from jumping workspaces when they request focus
@user2532531 This question is for Ubuntu 10.04, which almost certainly is not what you're using. Also, if I remember correctly, I was using xubuntu, not straight ubuntu, although I didn't tag that into the ticket. At this point, I'm using xubuntu 12.04, and the above answer still applies to xubuntu 12.04

comment do i need an antivirus?will mcafee work on ubuntu?
What I was thinking of is the one that comes pre-installed when you re-install windows from the install disc that comes with a Dell. It's been quite a while since I've used mcafee for anything...
