I like fish! And agonizing over solving the Finite Sub-Cuddling hypothesis!

comment gcc make install error
In ubuntu (and I think all deb based distros), search for and install "build-essentials". Might be the name in other distros as well. This should install gcc+ what else you need very easily.

comment Excessively high memory usage reported (3 GB) after reboot
Not familiar with it, but the failed installed might have corrupted something. Have you tried uninstalling? I would start with that; although a corrupt install might have messed with your OS more permanently.

comment gcc make install error
Maybe that is the problem. Among others, the link has a long list of config options to first run. I installed gcc from the software center, so not familiar with the ins and outs of going this tarball route; but often, before make install, you run something like make config, which here seems to have been delegated to you having to enter it all yourself - before running make/make install.

comment gcc make install error
In your link, there are so many steps before this one, requiring (possibly) installing packages, and (definitely) entering the commands precisely as is. I bet something went wrong there.

You should consider detailing the "oom killer during a project build." This is presumably you coding; what were you trying to build?

Excellent book; and it's Linux specific (geared towards intermediate to advanced users).

comment Is using cookies from a web-browser a sane rationale for desktop application development?
FF and chrome, as you say. FF probably is still most used.
