comment MacBook Pro (virtual machine) low resolution
I would also like to know the answer to this but in the meantime know that Debian, Fedora and Arch all work in full resolution without Parallels tools, although you may find Gnome and Cinnamon consume too much of your CPU. Why Ubuntu, openSUSE, Mageia and PCLinuxOS have this problem I don't know. Compilation choices in Xorg?

comment Nginx using default configuration on its own
In Debian Jessie, there are two identical (in content but not in name) files at /var/www/html and /usr/share/nginx/html. My own experiments show that what is being served is the index file at /var/www/html, i.e. what the Debian documentation describes as the document root. Maybe this will help you.

comment How to have two version of PHP installed and switch easily?
Have you considered setting up virtual Ubuntu servers using virtualisation software that you use in a headless fashion? I'd be surprised if what you are wanting to do is not well served (no pun intended) by such a set-up.

comment What to do with an Ubuntu disk image that appears as a WinRAR file?
But do read up on it otherwise you'll have no joy. "To install, boot your computer from the the Minimal CD and type 'cli' (command line install) at the prompt. You can then follow the instructions from the text-based installer. After the base system is installed, log in, and type 'sudo tasksel' to select the system to install."

If you have a slow connection, you might want to consider this help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD

Did you choose to save the file or to open it?

comment get back ubuntu grub menu
FYI - OpenSUSE still does this. Very disappointing when you've explicitly told it which partition to boot from.

comment Why isn't VirtualBox working for me?
Which version are you using? Are you using the version in the Ubuntu software-center or the more recent one from the VirtualBox website?

comment How to resize the Unity launcher?
Presumably correct at the time it was written, it is not currently the way to do this. See kelvinafox's answer.

comment How do I join two images in Ubuntu?
Ok but "join" is actually quite precise in meaning and other similar operations involving combining multiple images could be implied by merge or incorporate or something else. But no worries.
