comment Problem with sudo apt-get
@NGRhodes - I didn't know that about Debian. If there is a conflict during an upgrade, apt-get gives up and says it cannot proceed; aptitude offers potential solutions to the installation/upgrade. unix.stackexchange.com/questions/767/…

comment Enable disk encryption after installation
/home disk encryption does not include swap space. Sensitive data may be written to unencrypted swap, if only /home is encrypted. This can be recovered. Ubuntu has automatic decryption of /home during logon. Full disk encryption needs a password at both boot and login. Resizing an encrypted drive is a painstaking process. If you have an external drive, it is easy to encrypt after installation in 13.10 Saucy Salamander: back up your data, launch "disks" from the dashboard, select your external drive, click on the cog, select encrypt, unlock your newly encrypted drive, copy back the data.

comment Why do PPAs get errors after an upgrade?
y-ppa-manager is a great package to speed adding/removing PPAs. You don't need to update apt after adding a PPA this way: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager
