comment With multiple monitors, can I pick which one an application will load on?
It seems to depend on the application. Terminal does remember, X-Windows doesn't, for example.

comment StartupSound.prefPane on new iMacs?
Beta was my first thought too, but my guess is that it might mean build... The previous version that I installed a year ago on my MBP was v1.1b2, and the download site only offers one release for Intel processors, 1.1b3, under the heading "Version 1.1, Latest version".

comment What's the difference between Real, Virtual, Shared, and Private Memory?
@Louis, if the virtual memory has been allocated but does not make use of RAM or the hard disk, then where is it?
