comment “abbreviation” for dd$ if current line is empty
I don't know what configurations you guys are using, but using the actual vim (vi improved), in insert mode the backspace key performs exactly as in "other editors". Or am I missing something?

comment Is iptables -p proto -m proto redundant?
IIRC it is a relatively new feature that iptables guesses which modules it has to load, in order to get certain functionality. TCP at least used to be a module that one could choose to load or not. So -m tcp -p tcp would be the most portable version of TCP rules

comment Does Linux provide Predictive Self-Healing on x86?
Actually, the article you linked says that the Linux in Linux on POWER does not have self healing capabilities. While Linux has all the monitoring and configuration capabilites to implement "self-healing", I don't know about any ready to use systems. I suppose systemd will be able to do it better in a foreseeable version anyways.
