comment How do I change the number of desktops in Mountain Lion?
It's worth noting that the plus button will appear on the left of the screen if your dock is pinned to the right.

comment Upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion in non personal & large scaled development environment
You may lose the ability to compile ARMv6 applications? I'm not especially well-equipped to actually answer this question so you're welcome to ignore my totally unjustified opinion, but I genuinely think the best way to solve this is to just dive in. You will never prepare yourself fully by reading suggestions for things to look out for, and there's nothing to lose by just trying it on one or two machines. When you have, you will be able to come back and add a pretty useful answer to this question.

revised What are your favorite Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts?
cmd+h doesn't hide windows, it hides applications.

comment Upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion in non personal & large scaled development environment
The particulars and parculiarities of your applications and workflows can not be easily communicated, recreated or tested on anyone's machines but yours. I recommend you get a non-critical (and backed-up) machine and try to upgrade and use it normally in your shop for a while and see if anything comes up.

comment Can the iPhone screen's digitizer be safely separated from the glass?
The construction of the iPhone's screen has changed dramatically and repeatedly since the first iPhone in 2007. Knowing which iPhone it is you're talking about would help a lot.

comment Migrating to new user account: must chown old account's files… I think
A good point. find's symlink following won't affect the ownership of the filenames it does print (actually, it might if you're using @patrix's method; the manpage is unclear), so that's only really necessary if you want to gain some speed — it wouldn't be a problem if it found other files owned by your old user. stat does not follow symlinks by default, but chown does, so you should probably chown -h. Holding off is probably a good decision, though.

If you're nervous, make sure you've a backup. Which could just be a big list of every file and its permissions.

comment Is there free utility to amplify the system volume?
The only reason I can concieve of that you would want to boost system volume is that you're on the build-in speakers (or some little passive speakers) and the only volume control you have — the system-level one — does not go high enough. If post-system amplification was an option, this question would not have been asked.

comment Possible to save screen resolution settings and quickly switch between them?
I'd suggest cscreen, but there's no confirmation it works well/at all on Retina MBPs.
