comment what are some of the best resources to learn advanced debugging techniques using gdb?
The aim of the question is to merely collect some of the resources that other developers have used and found it to be very useful. I did my due research on the internet and couldn't find anything that stood out like the examples I have cited with regards to WinDBG. The question does not solicit opinions.

comment What is the difference between /opt and /usr/local?
My understanding is that /usr/local is a local version of /usr file system, whereas /opt is place holder for misc stuff.

comment Simple, user-friendly GUI file finder?
Did you try the command line tool locate? The only downside is having to run updatedb quite often to keep it up to date. But that can be worked around using cron.

@jsbillings see my answer below. I typed \` to display ` in the answer. And to display '\', as usual type '\\'.

comment How do I know where to put things in linux?
In addition to the wikipedia link to FHS, read this one too: pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html. Read the section that says "Purpose".

comment grep acting strangely
Did you try grepping after copying the test file from one of the machine where you did not have this problem? By the way how was the file created? maybe it may have something to do with utf ?!?

comment What functionality do I lose by disabling GDM/KDM/SLIM/CDM etc display managers?
I did it for exactly the same reason :) GUIs are bad if you want to become better in CLI. But there are some window managers like awesome (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Awesome_%28window_manager%29), which are more command line centric.
