comment Why are my command line utilities running so slowly on my Mac?
Does something odd show up in the log (visible through Console.app) when you run these commands?

comment How to minimize all windows except the selected ones?
Yes, you are right. However, when they minimize to the Dock icon it is nearly the same AFAIK.

comment How to minimize all windows except the selected ones?
@MateuszSzlosek Note that this is dependent on a system preferences setting. It can be set such that minimized windows minimize into their respective Dock icon and not as a separate window on the right of the Dock.

comment Why my MacBook Pro is so slow?
Ah, and additionally: could you please show what diagnostic actions you have performed and what the results were? This will help narrow down the problem and makes providing a solution easier.

comment Why my MacBook Pro is so slow?
I've installed Yosemite on an external drive and have been using it now and then with my MacBook Pro 5,3 from mid 2009 (regular HDD, no SSD btw). I had none of the issues described. So I think there's an underlying issue with the symptoms you are seeing. It is not related to Apple forcing you to buy more nor is it related to turtles.

comment Prevent from switching Wi-Fi networks
@markhunte Now I'm even more confused… That is a sentence the OP has in the question. Why would that be a reason to down vote ajkblue's answer? Does this solution not make OSX stick with the network OP selected?

comment Prevent from switching Wi-Fi networks
Why is this down voted? It sounds quite logical to me… Does this solution not work?

comment Install OS X Applications and Library directories on external drive
I assume you want to make some portable setup where you plugin the external drive in different macs and want your settings transferred like this? Only moving the Library folder to an external drive is not possible (as far as I know), but you can move the whole home folder

Do you have a lot of other wifi networks around your house (e.g. neighbours)? These might cause interference.

comment How can I force an application to be launched to the 2nd monitor?
@nhgrif I remember these options showing up were sometimes dependent on the way the application was launched (i.e. from Spotlight, the Dock or double clicked in the Applications folder). Could you please try different methods and see if that shows the options?
