comment How do I quit from Vi?
This question brings back such "fun" memories. I'm so glad I got over that feeling, however.

The "recording" by the way meant that you were recording a macro. Not that that matters any more.

The -e isn't necessary. piping whatever | sed G ought to do the trick.

Whether or not the Compose Key is that key or something else depends on your settings, and is very distro-, locale- and config-specific.

comment Fedora vs. Ubuntu installation
Ubuntu doesn't only have a wubi installer; there are other ways of installing it too. In fact, using the wubi installer ends up installing Ubuntu to an existing Windows partition. That way you are stuck with the inferior filesystems like FAT-32, rather than making full use of something like EXT4. This may be "easier", but it's technically inferior. Even if I were using Ubuntu I wouldn't use the Wubi installer.
