comment Checking if HyperThreading is enabled or not?
I like how everyone ignored the "perl script" bit ;-)

comment Use emacs as an editor within itself (ansi-term)
@StefanoPalazzo: or you could just use the ALTERNATE_EDITOR approach, leave (server-start) out of your init file, and let emacsclient worry about whether an emacs needs to be started...

comment Emacs X toolkit support?
@goldilocks: Well, it doesn't seem like XEmacs has been getting much love lately. However, I suppose it works well enough for something that follows the development more closely, like the Carbon port, or (shudder) AquaMacs ...

comment Emacs X toolkit support?
@vonbrand: The desktop environment is actually called CDE. And to be perfectly honest, I have Qt configured with style=Motif myself, and that at least looks more-or-less indistinguishable from lesstif. (I haven't tried the real Motif yet, since it's only been open sourced a short while ago and Motif apps are kind of thin on the ground these days.) Or did you mean that the API is horrible?

comment Emacs X toolkit support?
@goldilocks: Yeah, "it wouldn't fit in" is not a very convincing claim in the absence of an actual port attempt. I would certainly encourage any interested parties to give it a try, at least if they don't anticipate any difficulties with the copyright assignment. (I really do wish they'd be less insistent about that ...)

comment Emacs X toolkit support?
@goldilocks: If ever there was a program that'd do it, Emacs would be that program. For some reason, though, some people are worried that such support would not fit in well due to Qt's C++-based API, even though the OS X port seems to fit in okay and that's in Objective C. (If someone actually tried a port, we could even find out if they're right ...)

You seem to have forgotten to mention the --new-volume-script flag?

comment Can readahead-services be safely disabled?
Of course, this actually reduces the wait time if the user powers on the machine and then grabs a snack or something while it boots...
