comment Is it possible to su without being prompted for a password?
@Gilles: correct but a certain distribution has sort of changed the normal use of sudo. I do like sudo for what it was meant to be used as - but not as a replacement for su.

Reread the question, he wants to do echo "password" | su or something like that - NOT get rid of the password, NOT use sudo (which is less secure than su...)

comment How do open files behave on linux systems?
I'm not putting this as an answer because I don't really know but I think it has to do with inodes not being changed when you move a file.

comment build script: how to implement a “skip previously completed step”
CMake and autotools don't fit the same niche... autotools will make the program compile (when used correctly) on any platform with sh, wherease CMake will require CMake on all the platforms, which is fine if your not going to want full portability. I would list CMake and autotools as different options for similar tasks.

comment Mono book recommendations
Mono is an implementation, theres no need for a book on it. It would be like having a book for GCC - We just have a book for C.

+1 Ahh, the classic problem of people not being able to use a text editor on a file.
