comment How can I split an animated .gif file into its component frames?
It should be noted that (as of ImageMagick version 6.7.7) there seems to be some memory leak: do not attempt -coalesce with long .gif screencasts, it would probably consume all available memory and possibly hang your entire system.

comment Is it safe to install Ubuntu 12.04 alongside windows 7?
While I positively recommend co-installing Ubuntu to everyone with a Windows PC, I wouldn't call it “perfectly safe”. Yes, it usually works just fine if you don't get anything wrong – but wrong it can go easy enough! Indeed, the live CD (at least 14.04) has an option that will completely erase the HD, with all partitions, and not really warn you about it. Definitely make sure you have everything backed up (as you should of course always have, anyway!) before attempting this.

revised How to stop the first command the failing to affect the second command
Made it clear that `||` has also a shortcut feature like `&&` (but with the opposite behaviour).

comment Why bash is the default shell in most OS?
@Nagora: opinions vary. FWIW, you can always write Haskell with braces and semicolons instead of whitespace, and I suppose Python has similar fallbacks. Only, nobody does this, because indentation-based grouping is just amazing for readability.

comment How to launch the Calculator through Terminal
BTW, you should check out some alternatives to the simple Gnome calculator which run in the terminal. dc is the classic, and in some ways similar to a desktop calculator... but IMO that's not really good workflow; I'd recommend the REPL of a modern functional language like python or Haskell (ghci). Those can do anything a traditional calculator can, plus much, much more.

If you're very serious about this, check out some tiling window managers such as Xmonad or Awesome.

comment Microphone - static background noise suppression
This is a valid question, still I'd like to inquire: how about getting a decent microphone instead, so you don't get such amounts of noise in the first place? A bad microphone will always sound bad, IMO even worse when you use noise filtering than without.
