removed the sudo, it works for me without it (and not writing to the global plist)

comment Is there a way to turn off autosave feature in Lion OS X?
Since there is now a correct answer at apple.stackexchange.com/questions/27544/…, I flagged this as a duplicate, seeing as this question has an incorrect answer..

This is it. I just tested in Preview, and it works fine for me, without prepending /Library/Preferences/ and without the sudo, just defaults write com.apple.Preview ApplePersistence -bool no. If this will be an official option in Mountain Lion, even better!

comment Is it generally advisable to get anti-virus software for Mac OS X?
@Chealion: I guess it depends on what definition of "virus" you're using, but for example Wikipedia's a computer virus is a computer program that can replicate itself[1] and spread from one computer to another would seem to include worms anyway, no?

comment I want an operating system that can be used for both gaming and developing. Is Mac OS the right choice?
You're saying "Since I am going to reinstall my OSes", so you seem to imply you want to install OS X on the hardware you have now, which is presumably not a Mac. Just thought I'd let you know that Mac OS X officially can only be used on a Mac. Solutions like Hackintosh exist, but are generally a pain and just not worth it, apart from the "fun" factor.

comment Compile VLC on Lion
@Mailo: That guide says that to compile you run $ ../extras/package/macosx/build.sh. So just look what that does, and make it look in /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer (or wherever your Developer directory is). Alternatively, just create a symlink at /Developer pointing to wherever your actual Developer directory is.

comment Is it generally advisable to get anti-virus software for Mac OS X?
@Chealion: saying that there are no viruses available for Mac OS X is wrong. Check out for instance sophos.com/en-us/press-office/press-releases/2006/02/…, which is a "real" virus (i.e., spreads itself).
