comment Things to consider when buying a desktop to use dual screens in linux
I got Arch work to fine with dual screens with both Nvidia card, and the built-in Intel video from Sandy Bridge chips. Just keep your kernel and video drivers updated.

comment Faster alternatives to lsof
lsof is not the slow part, using all the name resolutions and ip resolving is. Make it all numeric and it will go fast.

What is the number of 'levels' of curly braces? Is it reasonably short, or can it be arbitrarily long?

Have you tried compiling the e1000e driver on your own, Intel actually keeps these updated frequently. Intel's newest e1000e driver

comment What Linux tool will tell me if all the mounted disks share roughly the same bandwidth?
iostat -x -m 5 is very helpful in diagnosing if you have one disk that' under-performing. -x gives you extra details about each disk, and you get to see each disk separately. Extra useful when you got software RAID, as you can look at your array as parts (disks), and as the whole (the RAID device).

comment Pros and cons of software Parity-RAID (e.g. RAID5)
That'd do it, but at that moment you're paying more than a decent controller in the first place ;) Also, speed goes up, but the reliability goes down, because most SSD's die very very quickly.

comment Howto create a permanent client connection with netcat?
Take a look at socat, it's a netcat replacement that has a built-in functionality to respawn pipes after they've finished.

comment How to limit resource usage to save CPU+RAM for a certain process?
When linux runs out of memory, it starts killing off processes to reclaim memory. You might be seeing OOM in action (out of memory killer). I don't know why would it decide to kill your sshd consistently though. Have you ever seen sshd actually leak (grow in size) horribly, before it blows up, or does it work fine one moment and is dead the next?

comment How to limit resource usage to save CPU+RAM for a certain process?
Sshd should not be blowing up like that, it's normally a very well behaving daemon. Make sure it's updated to the latest/greatest. What are you doing with it? Are you piping massive data through it?

comment What is the difference between .a and .so file?
You can also run ldd on .so's, and it will show you what other libraries it uses. Static will return with a message saying it's not a dynamic library.

comment GPGPU/CUDA in KVM or Xen
I know it's not direct answer, but I've tried using a 200 series Nvidia with ESXi 4.1 and got nowhere. Even with the passthrough set up to the correct PCI addresses, the guests were not able to access the devices with the access CUDA programs want.
