comment Do I have multiple python on my computer? and how to uninstall one of them?
Why remove python3.3? It's a newer version of the language -- and it typically doesn't provide an executable named "python" (it's named "python3"). It shouldn't conflict with your Python 2 installation, and removing it means you can't run any scripts that depend on Python 3. (You can almost think of Python 2 and Python 3 as two different languages.)

comment How to output only file names (with spaces) in ls -Al?
If you have a directory name "personal domain", how is the substring "personal" useful? And if you want to filter out the additional information other than the name, why are you using the -l option?

comment Will a shell script execute in Solaris? if not, which is the fastest way to make it compatible
@jlliagre: /bin/sh does exist on Solaris. Why would using it be a problem? Is it an older version of the shell?

Every UNIX-like system has a shell at /bin/sh. If you avoid features specific either to bash or to ksh, there shouldn't be a problem.

comment Why is number of open files limited in Linux?
@Lothar: Interesting. I wonder why the limits would differ. Given the fileno and fdopen functions I'd expect them to be nearly interchangeable.

comment What is the command for listing all users who are members of the admin group?
visudo edits the sudoers file; use it only if you want to modify it (yes, that's what the OP indirectly asked about). If you just want to view it, cat /etc/sudoers or less /etc/sudoers is sufficient. (You'll need root privileges for any of these, so sudo cat /etc/sudoers, for example.)
