comment What is the Linux distro ranking based on number of packages?
The data on this page may be a bit outdated. Last time I looked Debian had ~36000 and Fedora ~25000 (so a few thousands more than what is mentionned on Wikipedia).

comment how to chown mounted device?
An alternative on most modern distros could be to mount your device with udisks --mount /dev/something, which is the exact command line equivalent of what your desktop environment does.

What prevents you from just using the code that works in the shell at boot time, by placing it in (for example) /etc/rc.local ?

comment Differences in package management between Debian and Arch
@Faheem Mitha: Pacman is written in C, and is a frontend to libalpm, which handles both "high-level" and "low-level" package management.

@Tshepang: sorry, non-native english speaker here. I meant "this is not a big deal for me to not have this functionnality (debconf) and by forcing me to do things manually it forces me to know what exactly is done".

comment How to remove duplicate entries in 'Open With' Nautilus dialogue?
Yes. Some applications create duplicates which appears in the "open with" dialog like geany for you and I can remove them from here by editing gnome's Applications menu (in which they're present but hidden, so you don't see them by just browsing the menu, only in editor).
