comment What is the `editor` command in bash?
Ya, users will know what their editor is called, and I will just tell them to edit a particular file instead of showing a code example. I was on a roll with the code examples and I didn't realize that I was getting a little pedantic. It's too bad that Ubuntu doesn't set the $EDITOR variable, now I can't rely on that or the editor symlink.

comment Booting native Arch Linux on an Android device
Good to know, when I get my first tablet / smartphone, I will want a familiar Linux distro, installed cleanly. I know this isn't quite what you were asking for, but since there has been no response to the question, I hoped this Ubuntu example could be adapted for Arch. Maybe the files / bootloader installed by fastboot could be replaced? Or maybe I'm in over my head here. Good luck, and be careful!

comment How to permanently swap esc and caps lock in xfce / xubuntu?
I renamed the file (it worked!), but I am surprised that my .bash_profile method didn't work. I thought my bash-fu was not weak :P
