I prefer usually challenging questions, while I may spend some time on easier ones trying to explain something that used to be difficult for me.

My preference goes to algorithms, and C, a language that I've liked and known for a long time, while I like also to visit server fault and its many interesting and challenging system, DB, nginx, ... questions and answers.

Linux has been my working environment for almost 10 years. And a (few) Mac for leisure.

comment how can I change file association globally?
This is actually the more natural answer (from the GUI and without manually writing text files or installing 3rd party stuff). It requires a one type at a time setup, though, since Ubuntu does not offer a Open With in a multiple selection -> Properties.

comment Which PDF Viewer would you recommend?
That's right, but if you have or plan to have other KDE apps (and there are good ones) they will be needed anyway. And okular is so much better than evince (what cannot be?) that it's worth it!

There is some kind of fairness here: when upgrading from 8 to 8.1, Windows removes the grub bootloader...

comment How do you repair an “input/output error” in an NTFS partition?
You could install VirtualBox and an XP on it. Prevent the drive mounting in fstab, (if USB mount: add the USB filter in VBox so that XP sees the "raw" USB drive), mount the drive on XP and run chkdsk on it.

Why the -1? DraftSight has a free version that allows conversions of that kind

comment Ubuntu Hangs Suddenly (Dell Latitude E5530)
You should try to install the latest 12.04.2 64 bits (LTS) (note the .2) which seems to be fine on my E5530.
