comment How do I remove or hide old kernel versions to clean up the boot menu?
No need to reboot the system afterward. In fact, you should reboot the system before performing these steps, to ensure you are using the latest kernel version that you probably just downloaded & installed (you did an apt-get update && apt-get upgrade before this, right??)

comment Where can I buy a keyboard with an Ubuntu logo on the super key?
I got the free 'powered by Ubuntu' stickers (a couple months ago) but no meta key sticker. Maybe they were out at the time?

comment Nautilus doesn't show my desktop until I kill it
Unfortunately it's not a matter of waiting, I've already given it all possible amounts of time. I've ignored it and just used the computer, and then gone back hours later to find my desktop is still not loaded; but after running killall nautilus, it takes a few seconds for the icons to appear. Even opening folders doesn't make the desktop appear, so nautilus acts fine in all other ways except for the desktop. It's a mystery!
