comment Is it possible to install Linux packages on OS X?
Like I said, you should seriously try it. It's easier to manage, it's easier to use, it's easier to fix and it's easier to contribute. I'm not trying to win. Just see for yourself, then pick the one you prefer.

comment Is it possible to install Linux packages on OS X?
@CajunLuke for one MacPorts will install duplicates of everything it needs. Don't want another bzip2? Too bad, you're getting one. Brew on the other hand leverages the existing system. I have 23 packages I like to install. With Macports that balloons with dependancies to 144 packages. With Homebrew, only 44. That's what I call "overly complex". You should seriously try Homebrew. You'll like it better.

comment Why doesn't iBooks save my place between the iPhone and iPad?
Upgrading to iCloud doesn't disable MobileMe's iDisk component. You can keep using iDisk until the EOL date even after converting to iCloud.

comment Update from 10.5.8 to Lion with the Lion USB stick
What kind of Mac do you have? Lion requires an Intel Mac. It won't run on PPC. If you're unsure run uname -m in Terminal.

comment Is there a way to get Terminal on Lion to start up cleanly (without the buffered history)?
You can also close all the windows when quitting. Sometimes I like it to be clean. Sometimes I like retaining the old output.

comment Legality of iTunes sharing
As far as I understand, anything that iTunes will let you do, you have an implicit license for any iTunes purchased content (it would at the very least be a strong argument in court). Content obtained from other sources would be a different matter.

comment How do you install Adobe AIR on an ipad
@Paul - No, Apple doesn't allow alternative runtimes. What you write in Air gets compiled down to Objective C.
