comment How can I type a unicode character (for example, em-dash —?)
This is the most human method, thanks! You can set the compose key in settings—keyboard—shortcuts—typing. Right control is OK, as it doesn't clash with other modifiers.

comment Where is the usage of Ubuntu cloud guest image on OpenStack documented?
OK, but I assume this is possible only once the image is downloaded. This is useful, but I was asking more about the documentation for the 12 or so images that are listed on the UEC site. I don't really want to download them all and reverse-engineer the information about them :)

comment How to run Ubuntu touch apps on Ubuntu desktop?
Thanks! That's a nice start. Not perfect yet, as it's a sandboxed environment, so no easy file access, I guess. But we'll get there one day, I'm sure :)

comment How to easily start a webserver in any folder?
Yes, you need one of the newer version. The version in the 13.10 repos if you do sudo apt-get install php5 is 5.5.3, so you should be OK.

smbfs has been replaced with cifs-utils, other than that the instructions work for me too.

comment Where is virtualenvwrapper.sh?
What about zsh users? Great, another package that behaves differently on each OS. I think a sudo apt-get purge virtualenvwrapper and sudo pip install virtualenvwrapper is in order.
