comment Looking for a way to improve synaptic/touchpad palm detection
@PhilipDurbin I put them in a script that is called upon booting (using gnome-session-properties), but I need to do it for each user. The more traditional way is to put them in an xorg.conf file, but I couldn't find a way to set the syndaemon options in it, only the synclient options.

comment What is the real difference between “apt-get” and “aptitude”? (How about “wajig”?)
One big issue I had with aptitude is that it takes a long time to get tab completions on package names (eg, aptitude install linux-im tab), while it is very fast for apt-get. There seems to be some caching present in the apt-get family that is lacking for aptitude.

comment How can I disown a running process and associate it to a new screen shell?
Looking back, it clearly appears to be the most painless solution, provided you can plan accordingly and launch your processes from within a screen environment. Anyways, I made it the official answer!
