comment How can I rename photos, given the EXIF data?
Yes! But be careful of that particular format-string, because it'll give two files taken in the same second the same name. %i (or %03i, specifically) will give a sequence number, as requested in the original question. Combining both might not be a bad idea.

comment Negatives/downsides of Ubuntu's no-root sudo setup
If you can't add init=/bin/sh, you can't add single either, so in either case the bootloader password provides your protection there.

comment Negatives/downsides of Ubuntu's no-root sudo setup
Well, FWIW, I've been pushing for Fedora to do this since, well, since before Ubuntu existed, and I believe it'll finally be the default in F16 if not F15.

comment How do I choose a graphics card for Linux?
These are helpful links, but I'd really love to see some elaboration. (Some are more helpful than others — the TLDP document talks about XFree86, not Xorg... what parts of it are still relevant?)

I'm also curious about your statements on benchmarking. Does the driver have no effect on OpenGL performance? I remember seeing articles with headlines like "New ATI Catalyst drivers bring better performance" — is that purely a DirectX thing, or an artifact of the past, or something else? (See for example phoronix.com/… — "Historically, the Linux graphics driver performance has lagged behind Windows in terms of OpenGL performance even when both drivers are stable and mature.")

Are you aware of the Nouveau drivers for Nvidia cards? Is that what you are describing as "sort of failed"? Can you elaborate? I looked at the wiki and git tree, and although it isn't roiling with changes, the project doesn't appear to be dead.

Can you better explain your rationale here? I specifically note that open source drivers are important to me.

comment Secure FOSS alternative to Skype on Linux & OpenBSD?
That's fine, I just wanted to be clear. So, having source is an important requirement? If so, that should be clearly listed.
