comment How do I change which version of Qt is used for qmake?
@TamsynMichael - Yes, on the linux side qmake in bin is just a symlink. So, if you used something like update-alternatives to switch back and forth, that might be ideal. It's not in update-alternatives, and things like the PyQt build scripts want a direct reference to the binary anyway - not a symlink.

comment Why does apt-get in Ubuntu still want to install Python 2.7?
Well thought out answer Oli. I might add a little bit of because the PEP tells us it's the right thing to do. It's more intuitive for a package/pseudo-package to refer to the binary it provides.

Also, the recursive switch on rm is superfluous. A file never needs to be recursively deleted. I suspect you were trying to troubleshoot the file and tried to remove the r from rf and got as far as deleting the f from rf. Either way, you shouldn't need either switch.

You didn't tell people what virtualization solution you're using. Until you do, this question is less than useful.

comment Explanation of the building process of the kernel on Ubuntu/Debian systems
I think you're asking about packaging, not building. Building the kernel is configure make make install, or make menuconfig, make, make install...

comment How to allow authentication with `sudo` using an alternate password?
Even better, but why not just a cron script to keep UIDs and GUIDs in sync between two users?

comment How can I deny internet access to all processes except the chosen ones?
You could use iptables as suggested in the answer provided, but I think you're looking for a per process firewall. This doesn't exist at the moment. It's all port restrict/allow.
